Satyam (Sumanth) is an aspiring lyric writer who has a knack for inadvertently getting misunderstood by his father (Malladi Raghava) and his love interest Ankita (Genelia D'Souza). He ghost-writes for a popular film lyricist. He decides to prove himself as a self standing lyricist before expressing his love for Ankita. In the meantime, a classmate of Ankita proposes to her. The movie then witnesses a turn of events which involve Ankita's father (Kota Srinivas Rao,) who unknowing to Satyam, becomes a good friend of the latter. How Satyam overcomes his obstacles and finally succeeds in reconciliation with his father and Ankita forms the rest of the story.
