Seenu is a street urchin who has a friend named Junnu, her family has to transfer many times because of her father's job. While leaving she gave her phone number to Seenu written on a hundred rupees note but that note was stolen by a street boy . When chasing him he had an accident, that woman Sarojini (Ramya Krishnan) who injured him and her husband Prakash (Jagapathi Babu) adopted him.
Later after fourteen long years, Avinash (Akhil Akkineni) and Priya (Kalyani Priyadarshan) are both have rich lifestyle but are not happy without each other. And when he found her phone number but a mafia member steals his phone. So, he set out to get it back in order to reconcile with Junnu.
After he gets his phone back from the phone mafia, he finds Junnu's location. Junnu is in the Hyderabad Music Festival. He meets Priya there, who is upset about the tiff they had at her friend's sangeet/wedding. They forgive each other, and he starts looking for Junnu.
He visits to the music stall where Junnu had played earlier, and pesters them to tell him who the artist is. The poor man in the stall tries to explain him that he has no idea. In desperation, Avinash aka Seenu, plays the tune on a violin; although he has never played a violin before. Hearing the tune, Priya aka Junnu runs around looking for the player. Avinash aka Seenu gives up hope, and stops playing.
Serendipity is that, he finds the hundred rupees note with Junnu's phone number on it.
He dials the number repeatedly, but Junnu/Priya cuts the call repeatedly.
The funny part is he already has her number saved on his phone as Priya.
Finally she picks up the call, and they hug it out.
