Ajay feels ashamed to say that Arya is his friend and avoids him. But Arya convinces him that he would be a good boy if he be given a job in Ajay's company. Die hard friend Arya just wanted to stay close to Ajay. But Ajay has one condition that if Arya is proven as a "bad boy" in the office, he has to leave the company. Thus, Arya converts himself into a " Mr. Perfect" without any defect and joins the company. Everyone in the company are fond of Arya, especially Shanti (Shraddha Das) who is madly in love with him. One day Geeta (Kajal Aggarwal) joins the company and Ajay and Arya both immediately fall in love with her. Arya is now Geeta's Team Lead. In a lift one day, while Geeta converses with Arya, suddenly he kisses her. In many other instances also, Arya keeps confessing his love to Geetha without anyone knowing about it. But Geetha proves his deeds in front of all the staff one day and fakely proposes Ajay only to get rid of Arya. Ajay now wants to get rid of Arya. So, he crashes his own (Ajay's) car and weaves a story that Arya has crashed him. He did so, so that everyone would accuse Arya and he would be fired. At this juncture, Geeta comes to know that Ajay too loves her.
The next day at the office, Arya shows his true colours and arranges Ajay and Geeta's wedding. But on the day of their wedding, Geeta is taken away by her family to her hometown. Arya decides to bring her back at any cost. He is introduced to her family and he stays at her house amid the preparations for the wedding. Due to some feud cleverly caused by Arya, the wedding is stopped and Arya is asked to marry Geeta. After their marriage, Ajay arrives to their town and the trio decide to go away from the place before they could find out that Geeta does not love Arya. The three of them stay at a hotel and decide that they must forget all of their worries for Geeta and Ajay would be gone and Arya left alone. But, Geeta's father finds them and while attempting to stab Ajay, Arya rescues him. But he is stabbed instead. Arya is rushed to a hospital where it is seen that Geeta is truly in love with Arya. At the end, Arya asks Ajay to press a button. Unknowingly, Ajay does so. Suddenly, Arya starts suffocating for the supply of Oxygen is stopped.

Oneindia Entertainment gave a review stating "For those who go to watch Allu Arjun film with some expectations, the film would be a true feast. What all one could expect from Allu Arjun"s film could be available in this movie. With the excellent dances and melodious audio, the film would surely be a big hit. The film had all kinds of masala that is needed for a commercial formula film and it would definitely ring the box office and would remain another milestone in Allu Arjun"s career." IndiaGlitz gave a review stating "Arya-2, though not in any way a second edition of that mature predecessor, is nevertheless both interesting and sympathetic. Its greatest asset is the riveting second half. Its biggest drawback is the slowness Arjun's character takes to grow on us. If its intelligence and humour in the second half make it enjoyable, the drabness, tacky comedy and excruciating scenes make it unwatchable in the first half. Thankfully, everything is undone by the second 80 minutes, which you will want to watch again and again" and called it an "Entertaining, on again, off again" film. 123telugu.com gave a review stating "The film redefines the word 'Style'! Allu Arjun is back with a totally new look and style. The entire story is woven around Arya's character. The film has its share of brilliance, especially the scenes between Brahmanandam and his team, conversations between Allu Arjun and Navdeep and the entire episode involving Ajay. Arya-2 is the kind of film which you will either dazzle you or bore you to death, there's no middle way. Either way we end up hallucinating under its influence!" and rated the film 3/5 terming that it "Redefines Style". fullhyderabad.com gave a review stating "As for visuals, Arya 2 is undoubtedly a slickly made production. The overall design is as colourful and as cheerful as the promos have led you to believe, with the title song being one of the smartest portions of the film. For an audience starved of merry-making at the movies, this one could quite be the party whose invitation won't be chucked away so soon" and rated the film 6.5/10.
Arya 2 was released in 1000 screens worldwide if the Malayalam version is included.
The film collected ₹13 crore (US$2.0 million) Share in its first week, including ₹6.5 crores from Nizam and 1 crore from Visakhapatnam district. But there was a huge drop in the collections in the second week because of the Telangana Agitation. The film was banned in all Telangana regions because of Allu Arjun's relation with Chiranjeevi. Dil Raju, the distributor of Nizam lost about one and a half crores due to the Telangana Agitation.
The movie was dubbed into Malayalam with the same title, and released across Kerala on 5 February 2010 with 100 prints.
A third film in the series Arya 3 - Fall in love again is under development.
