Kencha is presented as a local in Kalasipalyam. He spends time with his friends, playing cricket and getting into fights. Kencha lives with his father Seetharam, mother Janaki and little sister Anitha. Seetharam berates Kencha for not completing his SSLC Exam and not having an aim in life. Kencha meets his neighbour Priya, who falls in love with him. Meanwhile, Kalasipalyam is ruled by gangsters Kota Prabhakar, Munna Bhai and his brother Jaleel. Munna Bhai and Jaleel use their syndicate network to support their mentor MLA Krishnappa. Kencha thrashes Kota Prabhakar and his henchman when they threaten to pour acid on Anitha. In Election day, Kencha thrashes Jaleel when he threatens everyone to vote for Krishnappa and also harasses Priya.
Munna Bhai finds out and creates a ruckus at Kencha's house, making Kencha withdraw a complaint. Kencha decides to start an eatery business with his friends. His parents are happy about his decision and extend their support. The business seems to be working out until Jaleel and his men start visiting their stall. Continuously for some days Jaleel's drunken men visit the stall and abuse Kencha's friend. Kencha tells his friend to not get involved in any argument with them. One night, Jaleel beats up Kencha's friend badly. Unable to keep emotions and anger in check, Kencha accidentally kills Jaleel and goes into hiding with his friends. Munna Bhai barges into Kencha's house and kills Seetharam, Janaki and Anitha, seeking revenge.
Enraged, Kencha goes to Munna Bhai's liquor factory and a fight erupts where Kencha is struck and stabbed by Munna Bhai, Krishnappa and SI Karunakar. They throw him in a lake. Kencha's friends and Priya find him and get him treated at Arya Vaidya Sala. He heals and plans to eliminate the terror of Munna Bhai. He kills Karunakar and Krishnappa. The latter's death is witnessed by the Police commissioner. Kencha goes to Munna Bhai's liquor factory where he, along with his friends kill the henchmen, chase Munna Bhai and brutally kill him, thus ending his terror and avenging his family's death. Kencha surrenders to the commissioner, but is not arrested, because he had killed only gangsters. Kencha and his friends form a vigilance group and punish the gangsters.
