Sri ( Srinivas ) is a guy who is madly in love with a girl named Rajini. He even gives her Rs 3 lakhs to help her out but as fate turns out,Rajini does not really love Sri. She escapes with the money along with another guy. This leaves Sri heartbroken. He decides never to fall in love again and he starts looking at women in a negative way. In another track, Shreya (Reshma) is friendly with a guy called Kishore. Kishore misunderstands Shreya’s friendship for love and he starts developing feelings for her. He starts acting possessively and begins hounding Shreya in the name of love. A disgusted Shreya decides never to be on friendly terms with any guy.

As you might have guessed by now, the lives of Sri and Shreya converge and they start off by quarreling with each other. Sri is forced to lie to his landlords that he is married as the apartment is not available for Bachelors. Once Shreya comes to know that Sri is married, she softens her stand and starts becoming friendly with Sri. Just when their mutual admiration begins to develop, unexpected twists and turns change everything. What are those twists? And will Sri and Shreya express their love? That forms the story.

Reception[edit]

The Times of India gave a review of rating 3.5/5 stating "Your hero does not have a six-pack, nor does he make a grand entry. Your heroine is not the glamorous type and there's no skin show. There's no chasing of villains and beating them to pulp. There's no star cast to boast of, but "Ee Rojullo" is a film that you would enjoy with the comedy being seamlessly woven into the script."[2] greatandhra.com gave a review of rating 3.25/5 stating "This is the film that entertained the targeted audience perfectly.

Watch it if your heart is youthful."[3] Oneindia Entertainment gave a review stating "Ee Rojullo is a decent film made on a small budget but still boasts of good production values. The film is targeted at the youth and they would connect with the film in a big way. The film, however, may not appeal much to the family audiences. Still, Ee Rojullo is a decent, interesting as well as entertaining film."[4] idlebrain.com gave areview of rating 3.25/5 stating "First half of the film is fun and second half has story. The plus points of the film are freshness and contemporary feel. The second half should have been more compact and the obscene dialogues/gestures should have been moderated. This film might not find a place for the people who may find certain dialogues and references to be offensive. But will go well with youth and masses. You may watch it."[5] Rediff.com gave a review of rating 2/5 stating "Perhaps a youthful subject like Ee Rojullo may go down well with urban youngsters."[6] 123telugu.com gave a review of rating 3.25/5 stating "Ee Rojullo is a movie that will work big time with young adults and students.
