Gopala Krishna (Ajay) is a bank employee whose age is nearing 40. He married an innocent woman named Bhavani (Indraja) at the age of 18 because of his grandmother's request, thus sacrificing his love. Since then he started toiling hard for survival and settles down at nearly 35 with two kids - Madhu (Naga Shourya), an engineering student and a young school going kid. He aspires to flirt with young girls at this age for mental satisfaction. Krishna's close friend Sathyam (Brahmaji) is jealous in this issue as his wife always henpecks him and is extremely suspicious about him.
Situations arise in such a way that a 21-year-old aerobics trainer Samhitha (Sana Makbul) is admired by both Krishna and Madhu without the knowledge of each other. Samhitha happens to be Madhu's senior in the college who discontinued her studies and she has to repay the loan raised in the bank Krishna works at. Both Krishna and Madhu turn good friends with Samhitha and fall in love with her, but are unaware of each other. For Samhitha, Krishna raises a loan from a local gangster.
After a few days, on the birthday of Samhitha, Krishna visits her house and proposes to marry her. Madhu sees this scene from a distance and dejected, he leaves. He also breaks his ties with Samhitha and plans to save Bhavani, to whom Krishna is next to god. He tries in every possible way to separate them as a stranger to them as a stalker on phone. But he fails to separate them and they also register the date of marriage at Arya Samaj.
Just on the day of the marriage, Bhavani visits a temple and with the information given by Samhitha, police nab Madhu and interrogate him. He only reveals that he loved Samhitha and wanted to marry her. She develops hatred for him and before her and Krishna, police beat Madhu black and blue which manages to change Krishna's mindset and reveal the truth that he is already married to Bhavani. She wants to file a case of the duo but after realising that Krishna has really changed for the better, she drops her plans. Krishna unites with Bhavani and Samhitha forgives the duo and leaves while Madhu looks on.

The Times of India gave the film 2.5 stars out of 5 and wrote, "Beyond the interesting premise, the film feels like any other triangular love story. It has its flashes of brilliance...however, the film overstays its welcome especially in the second half. In the end, the film doesn't quite hit the ball out of the park and leaves a big void despite dabbling with a new storyline". The Hindu wrote, "This film could have been a game changer but sadly, isn’t". Deccan Chronicle gave 3 stars and wrote, "you can watch Dikkulu Choodaku Ramayya once, and should appreciate the debutant director for his good effort to come up with a new subject". 123telugu wrote, "Dikkulu Choodaku Ramayya is a refreshing change from the routine commercial flicks which are coming out off late. Even though this film lacks proper narration in parts, it will still make up for a decent watch for its unique content".
This movie plot line is loosely based on English movie " American Beauty - 1999".
After Dikkulu Choodaku Ramayya 's success, the film is being remade in Hindi language. According to sources Film Producer Sanjeev kumar taken the remake rights from Telugu Producer.
