After giving a big hit like Mass, Nagarjuna had no notable hit to his credit. Though, he did another mass-oriented movie King, which failed at box-office. After watching director Veeru Potla Bindaas, Nag summoned him and expressed his wish to work with him. As a result, they have joined hands in Ragada, which has all kinds of commercial elements that could attract mass audiences.

Satya (Nagarjuna) is from Kadapa. He reaches Hyderabad city and as soon as he enters the city outskirts, he saves GK (Dev Gil) from goons. Impressed with the style of bashing the goons, GK asks Satya to work with him. Satya comes to know from GK about Peddanna (Pradeep Rawat). Satya starts eliminating Peddanna's loyalists and succeeds in killing two of them. Satya meets Sirisha (Anushka) at GK’s house and she falls in love. At this juncture, Ashta Lakshmi (Priyamani) enters the scene, with her father, mother and younger brother. They ask Satya to give them shelter. What happens next should be seen on-screen.

Nagarjuna has excelled in a mass role. Apparently, he has worked very hard as he is in dire need of a success with a volley of two or three flops/average flicks. He looks very handsome and looked like a macho man in action scenes. Brahmanandam has got a very good and lengthy role in this film and both Nag and Brahmi has delivered good comedy in the film. Anushka and Priyamani has competed with each other in exposing and Priyamani has gone a little overboard. Tanikella Bharani is brief, while Dev Gill does a spineless character. Pradeep Rawat is okay as main villain. Satya Prakash has been wasted. Venniradai Nirmala and Lata have done justice to their roles, while Dharmavarapu Subrahmanyam, Sana, and Master Bharat has helped in tickling the funny bones of audiences. Charmme has done an item song and shown her oomph in the first song.
