Murali Manohar (Nandamuri Balakrishna) is the son of the industrialist SVR (S. P. Balasubrahmanyam). He arrives in India from the States after finishing his graduation. SVR fixes a girl Jiddu Balamani (Sadhika) for him and asks him to marry her. To get rid of the unwanted marriage, Manohar escapes back to Switzerland.
Sowmya (Simran) is the granddaughter of Achyuta Ramayya (Satyanarayana). Achyuta Ramayya's family consists of 3 of his daughters and their husbands and their kids along with Sowmya and Jalandhara (Sanghavi). Jalandhara is the legitimate daughter of the son of Achuta Ramayya and Sowmya is the illegitimate daughter of the son of Achuta Ramayya. Hence everyone in the family except for Achuta Ramayya demeans and harasses Sowmya that she is the illegitimate daughter. Jalandhara has lot of hatred towards Sowmya and she tries to be diplomatic with Sowmya, but backstabs her without Soumya's knowledge every time.
Sowmya gets a job offer as a bank Manager in Switzerland. Here the stage is set for the introduction between Manohar and Sowmya at the airport followed by Manohar teasing her in the flight. As Mr. Subba Rao (Chalapathi Rao) did not come to the airport to receive Sowmya, she is forced to take the help of Manohar.
SVR and his cook come to Switzerland to search for Manohar. Sowmya shifts her accommodation to her boss Paramahamsa's (Prithvi) guest house. Then her boss tries to rape her and Sowmya escapes from him and starts running on the road. Here come the 15 minutes guided tour of Switzerland with SVR and his cook running the roads for Manohar, Subba Rao searching for Sowmya, Boss running after Sowmya, Manohar chasing the boss to help Sowmya. In this chasing sequence, Manohar expresses his love to her and Sowmya accepts. At the end of 15 minutes of running senseless, Boss is sent to jail, SVR accepts the love of Sowmya and Manohar.
SVR decides to go to Achyuta Ramayya's house and ask the hand of Sowmya for his son. On the way due to some unforeseen accident, SVR runs Achuta Ramayya down with his car and fractures his legs. Achyuta Ramayya refuses to get Sowmya married to Manohar.
Sowmya decides to elope with Manohar. But Manohar convinces her that they should get married with the consent of their families as it will be useful for everybody in the long run. And the next thing you see is Manohar joining Achyuta Ramayya's house as a cook named as Bheemudu and winning the heart of everybody. But Jalandhara comes to know that the cook is none other than Manohar. She takes every opportunity to disturb the discreet romance of the love birds and seduce Manohar.
As Jalandhara starts vying for the blood of Sowmya desperately, Manohar tries sincerely to win the hearts of the Sowmya family.
