Kalicharan is a local racketeer and he organises a cricket-betting club as a bookie. His orphaned background made him insensitive and ruthless. He tortures and humiliates whoever tries to evade paying their debts. He maintains a private life and has a secret and kills everyone who discovers it.
Three friends, who emerged from their birth date, April 1, always fall in trouble with their stupid actions. Yet they consider themselves smart. They cannot tolerate if anybody calls or makes them fools. On his new job as bank recovery agent to collect the debts, Jay, one of three, meets a beautiful girl, Sasi, and immediately falls for her. Sasi is educated and ambitious. It is her dream to become an entrepreneur like Chanda Kochhar and Indra Nooyi. She sets up a start-up company and loses all her money. In the process of creating a new start-up company, she manages her lifestyle privately. In pursuance, Jay and Sasi formulate tit-for-tat plans and finally become friends. The three friends offer her a quick-money opportunity with bitcoins. But they lose the money.
To earn back her love and money, the boys go for cricket betting which Kalicharan organises. Initially they win but eventually they start losing all the bets and boys are in 1 crore debt to Kalicharan. The boys are worried and don't know how to repay it. Soon they realise that they were fooled by Kalicharan. They decide to take revenge by robbing Kalicharan. When they enter Kalicharan’s mahal, they see a ghost who is Kalicharan’s lifeline. The boys realise that Kalicharan is practically living with the ghost. They are frightened and flee from the Mahal. Kalicharan and ghost pursue the boys. Kalicharan and the ghost's identities are later revealed.
A critic from 123Telugu wrote that "On the whole, Edaina Jaragochu is a horror crime-comedy which impresses in parts. Passable first half and good performances from Bobby Simha and Sashi Singh will keep the proceedings engaging. But on the flip side, the slow-paced lengthy second half makes it a below-average fare at the box office". But on OTT platforms, the audience critically well received.
