Satya (Naga Chaitanya) is a student. He discontinues his graduation studies in Vizag and comes to Hyderabad in search of a job. He stays with his uncle (Sunil) in Hyderabad. He runs into a fight with MGM college students who are influenced by political mafia leader Durga Rao (J. D. Chakravarthy). Satya tries to change the students but fails. Then he gets accidentally hit by the students and gets admitted into the hospital. When questioned by his uncle (Sunil Varma) about his rude behavior with students Satya narrates his flashback.

In the flashback we see a carefree Satya with a gang of his classmates. Although he was a topper until schooling, college environment makes him to be a stubborn guy. His principal (Prakash Raj) keeps on advising him to change but Satya would just feel it as a lecture. He also makes his principal's sincere son, Bujji join his gang. One day they go on for a bike race and Bujji accompanies Satya on Satya's bike. The bike's chain gets loose and the bike slips leaving injured Satya and dead Bujji. This makes Satya to realise.

And now after getting discharged from the hospital, Satya joins the college to cleanse the system. On the other hand, there is Vidhya, an elementary school teacher (Karthika Nair) who aspires to go to college but could not as her brother feels that college students are rowdies and she would not be safe in college. She meets Satya and love blossoms between them. Main crux of the movie is how Satya changes the students and brings them out of the bad influence of Durga Rao.[3]
