Amma Rajasekhar, who was basically a choreographer turned a director and proved his mettle with a blockbuster like Ranam. But like many other directors, he failed to maintain the standards in his second film, in the absence of proper storyline. It is surprising that a choreographer like him forgot that mere show of belly and belly button of the heroine could not save a film totally.

Dasu (Raviteja) is the son of a counterfeit racketeer (Kota Srinivasa Rao). As his father goes to jail, Dasu becomes an orphan. He stops his education at 10th Class and moves like a vagabond. On the other side, there is a smuggler who used to smuggle drugs and arms into the country. But an honest police officer (Prakashraj) hatches a plan and sends one informer (Raja Ravindra) into their underworld. He stays with them for sometime and passes on information to the police, with the help of which the police were able to bust the smugglers team, though not the kingpin. The don's assistant, who was also a lawyer advises him to play the same trick and admit one of their henchmen into the police to get information from the reverse side. However, he should not be in police records but should be crooked and cunning.

The smugglers team's search ends with Dasu. The group threatens Dasu and make him to play like a puppet in their hands. In order to push him inside the police department, he should at least pass Class X. So, they admit him in a school, where he falls in love with a teacher Nakshatra (Ileana). However, she doesn't like him as he neither has no good education nor good looks. After a few incidents, the don's right hand i.e, the lawyer tells Dasu to study well and become a police officer to win her love. Admitting the idea, Dasu turns a good student and gets through the exam. Later, he becomes a constable and gets posted in traffic. The smugglers unit hatches another plan and succeeds in pushing him in the crime police. After watching Dasu as a sincere police constable, Nakshatra too starts liking him.
