Plot[edit]

Chintakayala Ravi (Venkatesh) works in a bar named Cyber Wave in New York. He is a head waiter; he works with his three friends who also are waiters at the same bar. He has a soft spot for software engineers because he came to the US with the dream of becoming a software pro. Unavoidable circumstances prevented him from reaching that goal.

His mother Seshamamba (Lakskmi) tells everybody in her village in Andhra Pradesh that her son is big software engineer in America. Ravi is hit hard with a sentiment; for the sole reason of not wanting to hurt his mother's feelings, he continues to tell her the sweet lie that he truly is a software engineer in America.

However, problems arise when Seshamamba gets ready to marry her son to Lavanya (Mamta Mohandas), a local village girl, because Lavanya believes Seshamamba when she says that Ravi is a software engineer. So, when Lavanya asks her childhood buddy, Sunitha (Anushka), to enquire about Ravi, the truth comes out that he's a bar waiter. Her family gets angry that Ravi's family lied to them, and when Ravi arrives in the village for betrothal, he is subjected to humiliation. What happens later forms the remaining story. He troubles Sunitha. Later he saves her and she understands how a good person Ravi is when he saves her father. She aims a rejoining Ravi & Lavanya. However, Ravi and Sunitha find out that Lavanya's parents have fixed a marriage with another NRI Prabhu (Jr. NTR). Lavanya tries to convince her parents, but her attempts are in vain. Prabhu on the other hand who is all set to marry gets suspicious about Lavanya's behavior and asks her about her concerns. A sad Ravi gets a call from Prabhu and finally fix everything. Prabhu leaves and Ravi and Lavanya fall in love with each other and get married.
