Arjun (Nikhil Siddharth) after finishing his exam waits at marriage registrar office for his girlfriend Ayesha to arrive and marry her, but Ayesha doesn't show up, leaving Arjun heart broken. Few years later a cousin of Arjun's friend, named Kishore (Vennela Kishore) gets mentally disturbed who feels possession of some spirit in his body. For treatment Arjun takes Kishore to Kerala. While Kishore is being treated, Arjun is attracted to a girl named Amala (Hebah Patel), who reminded him about Ayesha in terms of attitude. After finishing Kishore's treatment, Arjun is once again left heartbroken as Amala leaves the place without even informing him. Arjun goes after Amala to her village, Vijaywada, and gets shocked by knowing that Amala met with an accident four years back and the girl whom he met in Kerala is not Amala. Back in Hyderabad, Arjun meets the girl who posed to be Amala and finds that her actual name is Nithya and gets to know that in the past Nithya was possessed by a spirit whose name was Amala and for treatment Nithya went to Kerala. Gradually, Nithya and Arjun grow closer. But at that time Amala's spirit enters another girl's body whose name is Parvati (Nandita Swetha) and comes to Arjun's house. Arjun, although tensed, maintains a normal behaviour with Amala. Gradually Arjun's close behavior with Nithya makes Amala (Parvati) furious and emotional as she becomes possessive about Arjun. At that point, Amala reveals the truth that she is none other than Ayesha (Avika Gor) (actual name is Amala but Arjun thought as Ayesha)- the same girl to whom Arjun was supposed to get married, but unfortunately on the day of marriage, she meets with an accident and dies on the spot. She says that she saved the girl named Parvathi when she was attempting a suicide because she was supposed to get married to her uncle whom she doesn't like. After hearing all this Arjun feels guilty and sad that he couldn't identify her and he tries to stop her but Amala does not pay heed to any of his pleas. Amala feels that Arjun no longer loves her and leaves Parvathi's body. After gaining consciousness, Parvathi is unable to recognise Arjun and at this point of time Parvathi's uncle (Raja Ravindra) comes there and beats up Arjun. When he is about to kill Arjun, Amala once again enters Parvathi's body and saves Arjun. While in the hospital, Amala gets to know from Nithya that Arjun is still in love with her and that's why he said no to Nithya's love proposal, but at this time Kishore with the help of Swamiji, who cured him in Kerala makes Amala's soul leave Parvathi body and captures it.Swami consoles Arjun that it's against God's will for a soul to live on earth after death.A few months later Arjun meets Nithya on road and he finds that some of her behaviour resembles that of Amala(it is shown in the credits that's the bottle in which amala was captured is now broken implying that it was infact amala in Nithya's body again) and ends up proposing her for marriage and Parvati returns home but her uncle says to marry the guy of her choice and runs away because of her behaviour in Arjun's house.
