Chiru (Chiranjeevi Sarja) helps Madhu (Kriti Kharbanda) and Dilip (Kiran Srinivas) elope from her father, a HM (Rangayana Raghu). But her father mistakes her boyfriend to be Chiru and sends his men to catch them because he is a poor guy, whereas Dilip is rich and has a good job. After knowing it is Dilip, not Chiru, he agrees for Madhu and Dilip's marriage and takes them home. Chiru begins to miss Madhu realizing his love for her. Madhu, too realizes her love for Chiru and reveals it to her mother, who asks her to elope, but she refuses, saying that she has already made her father feel shame and will not repeat the mistake again. This is overheard by her father, who has a change of heart and reunites Madhu and Chiru.
