Raju (Raj Tarun) is a kleptomaniac i.e., an impulse to steal without his own knowledge, his father Narayana (Rajendra Prasad) sees his problem in childhood and takes him to Dr. Saima (Prudhvi Raj) who has pledged to cure it by inventing a new medicine, but is unsuccessful. Due to the disease, Raju has constant breakups with girls, once a college girl Vennela (Pujita Ponnada) warns him not to love any girl, otherwise, she is going to disclose the truth. Thereafter, Raju gets acquainted with beautiful Tanvi (Amyra Dastur), when he starts covering his disease with various funny reasons, thereby winning her love. After a few hilarious incidents, Tanvi's parents (Shiju & Pramodini Pammi) accept their alliance. Now there is a twist in the story, Tanvi's grandfather Suryanarayana (Nagineedu) is the most respected person in the village who hates thieves and punishes them by severing their hands. After entering their village, frightened Raju makes everyone believe that his father has kleptomania. Meanwhile, a terrorist group is in search of Raju as he has stolen their bomb which was to blast for a contract of 100 crores. Meanwhile, Anji (Rao Ramesh) the past servant of Suryanarayana has been ostracized from the village for the theft of temple ornaments. After 25 years, Anji returns as a millionaire to take avenge against Suryanarayana. So, he makes a ploy by again making the theft of the ornaments and indicting Suryanarayana. Here, to protect Suryanarayana's honor, Raju takes the blame, admits the reality regarding his disease when he has been insulted badly and Tanvi starts hating him. Eventually, Anji shakes hand with the terrorists, strikes a deal coincidentally and provides the bomb in Raju's towel. At last, Raju nabs the real culprits proves Anji as a miscreant when everyone understands his virtue and requests his pardon. On the other side, Raju at present steals the triggering device of the terrorists and accidentally activates it by which the entire gang dies in the blast. Finally, in the post-credits Raju again steals the wedding chain, at the time of his marriage and everybody laughs at him.
