The movie starts where Krishna (Prabhu Deva) and his wife Devi (Tamannaah) arriving in Mauritius for Krishna's work, leaving their daughter with Devi's parents. As the story moves, Devi meets with Lawyer Lalitha (Kovai Sarala). They became friends that night. Krishna wakes up and closes the door which was open, but it opens again suddenly. Next, Devi becomes suspicious of Krishna because a colleague hugged him. She makes this as an issue and ask him to promise on their daughter's photo to which he says that it is casual and that he will not make a big deal out of it. Again in the middle of the night, Krishna wakes up and closes the door, but the door suddenly opens after he left.
The next day, Devi sees Krishna with Sara (Nandita Swetha) and again became suspicious of Krishna. She asks him about it, but he replied that it was someone else and that he was at his office, and if there is any doubt about him, she can visit him in his office. The next day was their wedding day, but Krishna seems to have forgot it, so Devi was angry and did not give him lunch. On his way to his office, Krishna encounters a gang who warns him not to follow Sara. After sometime, Lalitha convinces Devi, so they both went to Krishna's office, where he was not there. On their way they again, they spot Krishna (who speaks Telugu) with Eesha (Dimple Hayathi). Lalitha mistakes Krishna going behind a girl because Devi does not have time for him after their childbirth, so Devi wears modern dress to impress him, but he mistakes it as Ruby (from the previous film). However, Krishna finds that it is Devi and tells her that he likes her as she is and loves her only, and that no woman will be in his life except her. He even promises on her daughter's photo.
The couple goes out the next day as it was Sunday, where Krishna goes to buy ice cream but suddenly, Devi sees him with Sara again. The gang come to beat Krishna, but he escapes and is seen with Eesha. The gang tries to beat Krishna, but he gained the upper hand. While running behind a gang member, Krishna comes behind Devi with ice cream. Devi decides to find what is the mystery. The next scene starts with Devi following Sara, where it is shown that the latter is in band whose head is Rudra (Ajmal Ameer). Devi follows Sara and comes to know about Alex Britto (Prabhu Deva), who loves Sara but died. Next, we see Devi speaking with Eesha's father. She finds out about Ranga Reddy (Prabhu Deva), a person who wanted to marry Eesha but died in a car accident. Again, we see the door being opened. Krishna closes it, but Devi, who was still awoke, follows him and calls Alex and Ranga saying that he came. Devi then becomes terrified.
The next morning, Devi asks Krishna to urgently leave Mauritius as her mother was sick, but it backfired. The two ghosts made an agreement with her and with Lalitha as the witness. The two ghosts say that they chose Krishna because of Ruby's recommendation (the contract is same as the first movie). On the first day, both Alex and Ranga possess him, which creates a confusion, so Devi made a new agreement which states that from 9AM to 3PM, Alex can use him; from 3PM to 9PM, Ranga can use him; and when both of their girls who they try to woo say, "I love you", they have to leave him alone; and Sundays are holidays. We then come to know that there is a concert happening on Monday .
Devi and lalitha help the ghost to woo their girls respectively by cooking up stories that they were the same girls whom his brother loved and he is now mentally unstable because both their lovers died and ask the girls to say "I love you" so that he can return to his normal state. At last, the girls decide to say it, but then Ganesh (RJ Balaji / Saptagiri) comes and ruins everything. The next day was Sunday. When the couple went out, they see Eesha and Sara talking to Krishna, where the girls learn that Krishna is a not a crazy person and has been lying to them. A confused Krishna goes to his home with Devi where they are kidnapped, and it is revealed that Rudra is behind it and that he wanted to marry both of them for their money and that he killed both Ranga and Alex.
Alex then escapes and tries to kill Ruda. Devi tries to stop him. Parallely, Lalitha meets Eesha and asks her to say "I love you", and Rudra meets Sara and asks her to say "I love you". On Krishna's way to kill Rudra, Devi begs him, to which Alex pushes her, and she cries suddenly. Raj Khanna (Sonu Sood) lifts her. It is revealed that he is the chief guest, and suddenly, a flashback rolls to the first film where he tells Krishna that if she cries, he will shoot him. Raj angrily follows Krishna to shoot him, and both ladies convey that they do not love Krishna but Ranga, and Sara still loves Alex. Both ghosts leave his body. However, Rudra spots Krishna and Raj. Both of them follow Krishna to kill him but mistakenly, Raj shoots Rudra instead of Krishna, and Krishna and Devi reconcile. At the final scene, we see that they both are leaving Mauritius, where Devi still has Ruby's nameplate.
