PlotEdit

The story opens with Sub-Inspector Vinay Rao (Sudheer Babu) receiving a complaint from a young boy (Master Charith Manas) who claims that his house, along with his parents inside, has gone missing. The claim is validated when Vijay finds that house no. 143 in the colony, the boy’s house, is missing. Dr. Surya (Ravi Prakash), is a medical practitioner who sponsors an orphanage in the city. A girl from the orphanage goes missing, but the Circle-Inspector (Anantha Prabhu) does not take the case seriously and rebukes Surya. A passenger flight commuting from Colombo to India goes missing, and Deepak Reddy (Nara Rohith) is appointed as the head of the Investigation Unit.

Constable Ramarao (Shashank), a part-time private investigator, offers to help Dr. Surya find the missing girl, but this results in the latter getting threatening calls from the kidnapper. Deepak Reddy receives a call from a man, identifying himself as Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu (Sree Vishnu), who claims to have hijacked the missing flight and asks for Inspector Neelima (Shriya Saran). Neelima reveals that there has been a string of serial killings of criminals in the recent past that were linked to a man who identified himself by the same name. Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu demands that in exchange for the release of the 300 hostages, Deepak and his team has to execute a Pan-Indian mission of simultaneously killing 300 criminals. The government accepts the condition and arrangements for the operation are made. Vinay’s constables discover a key that opens the lock to an old dilapidated house, and the team plan to break into the house, where they believe the kidnappers of the young boy’s parents reside. Ramarao discovers that an entire racket is at work in kidnapping poor and orphaned young girls, and follows the kidnappers while they are kidnapping another girl, but is discovered and taken to Dr. Surya’s house, where Ramarao, Surya and the latter’s wife are killed by the kidnappers. Deepak discovers that Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu’s claims of hijacking the flight were false after the flight’s remains were are found in the Indian Ocean, implying that the plane had crashed. Vinay and his team rescue the kidnapped girls and find the head of the kidnappers and gun him to death.

Deepak and his team are forced to go ahead with the operation after realizing Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu has another set of 300 individuals as hostages. Meanwhile, a man dressed in a Santa Claus outfit murders the girls Vinay and his team had rescued. Dr. Surya’s orphaned son, Nikhil (Master Snehith), who was admitted at the orphanage, runs away and dresses up as a girl, hoping to discover the kidnappers, and is successfully taken away. Vinay discovers that his father has committed suicide. Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu, instead of releasing, burns the kidnapped hostages, who are later revealed to also have been criminals. The team manage to find a sketch of his appearance, and trace his location. Meanwhile, Vinay realizes that the house has not gone missing, rather the number plates outside all the houses have been changed to make it look like the boy’s house has gone missing. The corpses of the boy’s parents are also discovered. Nikhil escapes from his kidnappers after being discovered. Vinay discovers that the young boy was the one responsible for the murder of his parents, the forging of the missing house, as well as the suicide of his father. It is revealed at this juncture that the story takes place in 3 different timelines;Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu, Nikhil and the boy are all revealed to be the same person. It is revealed that Vinay’s father, the negligent Circle Inspector, was the head of the kidnappers’ racket that killed Dr. Surya. Years later, the kidnappers themselves adopted Nikhil from the orphanage, not realizing who he was, and were killed by him, which bought Nikhil to Vinay, and he blackmailed Vinay’s father into suicide.

In the present, Deepak, Neelima and an older Vinay corner Nikhil / Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu to a dilapidated building, but the latter successfully escapes from there. An epilogue shows a much older Nikhil, and hints at a sequel.
