Anita (Samragni) is a clever girl. She makes use of every opportunity to her favour. She has a brother Munna (Master Bharat) and stays with her parents (Narsing Yadav and Hema). Two irresponsible bachelors stay in a portion of their house as tenants. A boy Chevikada Sreenu (Dhanush) joins them in the room. Sreenu is an innocent and Anita used to make him a bakra every now and then. As she is friendly Sreenu mistakes her that she likes him. Knowing his innocence, Anitha's friend Satya (Satyakrishnan) and Anitha's parents advise her to accept his love. Anitha accepts their advice and start loving him. One day, Rana (Ravivarma), a millionaire visits the resorts in which Anitha is working and likes her. Rana's father tells Anitha that Rana is ready to marry her. Anitha, who is an opportunist, decides to marry him as she feels that her life would be rosy because he is quite well off. Ditched by Anitha, Sreenu commits suicide. Though Anitha did not care it, Anitha's father Subbarao (Narsing Yadav) feels very bad about Sreenu's death. Rana loves Anitha so much and presents her a big car as a birthday gift and appoints one Chalapati (Shafi) as her driver. Rana plans a tour to Singapore for a week to settle a business deal, and Anitha requests him that she wanted to see her parents and show them the car given to her as gift. Instead of taking Anitha to her parents' place, Chalapati takes her to a lonely place. Anitha could not understand why Chalapati kidnapped her. Moreover, she is surprised to know that Chalapati is a rich person. Chalapati tortures her mentally during that one week. Finally, Anitha comes to know that Chalapati is none other than the best friend of Sreenu and kidnapped her only to avenge the death of his friend. But without harming her, Chalapati takes her back home and calls up Rana saying that Anitha planned to kill him and grab his property. Rana suspects her in the beginning, but Anitha reveals her past and love with Sreenu and Chalapati is taking a revenge on her. Rana understands the situation and tells her that she did wrong. The film ends on a happy note with Rana and Anitha offering floral tributes to Sreenu and Chalapati joins them.
Samragni, though a debutant, gave a good performance. It is Shafi who walked away with honours with a very good performance. He showed good villainy in a very neat manner. Both these characters are major plus points in the film. The director needs to be commended for etching all the roles in a fantastic way. Moreover, he did not ignore small characters also and gave a good finish to them (Satyakrishnan and Chitram Sreenu roles). Cinematography is also good all through the film and the background score in re-recording by Ashirwad also helped in maintaining the tempo. All these points remained major plus points.
Comedy track is a major minus point in the film. Comedy by Venumadhav, though impressive, had nothing to do with the main story. Another comedy track with Chitram Sreenu and his friend also not that effective. It is Dhanush's innocence that evoked a little laughter. The director also failed to highlight the glamour of the heroine in an effective way.
The only draw back in the film is that the first half moved at a steady pace but the second half run in a slow motion. But, the director was able to maintain good tempo all through the film. The commercial viability of the film could not be guessed on the first day in the absence of notable artistes. But with the help of good publicity, it may pick up slowly.
