Misro (Charan Raj) is a dacoit. SP Chakravarthy (Sarath Babu) arrests him. Misro wounds himself and is taken to hospital for the cure, where Chakravarthy is waiting for his wife Geeta (Sangeetha), who is in labor and she gives birth to twins and the doctor says that both children have reflection mentality, that means "if it pains to one other also hurts" depending on distance. Misro escapes and takes one of the twins with him, hurting Geeta. Chakravarthy goes after him, he could not find the child, but shoots Misro. The child was taken by a lady who works as a daily labourer with her husband and they adopted him. They have a daughter and one day in an accident at construction place both were killed. The two children become orphans and they grew up, but the brother Deva (Akkineni Nagarjuna) with his friend Kasi (Brahmanandam), another orphan become thieves for earning. On the other hand, Geetha goes into coma and Chakravarthy takes her to America for the cure, here the other twin Ravi Varma (also Nagarjuna) is brought up. He returns to India as a rock star to give performances here. He is received by Giribabu (Chakravarthy's friend), who wishes to marry his daughter Manga (Ramya Krishna) to him. But Manga is in love with Deva. In the airport, Ravi Varma sees Ooha (Soundarya), daughter of Akkamamba (Annapoorna), who is organizing his public performances and falls in love with her. Simhachalam Srihari, who is Akkamamba's brother also wishes to marry Ooha. Meanwhile, at home Manga advances with him thinking he is Deva only. One day in a restaurant they see each other and find that they are identical, which leads to hilarious misunderstandings.

Enraged, Mitra teases her and Deva fights with him. So Mitra wants to take revenge against Deva, he sends his henchmen (Sivaji Raja) as the bride to Kasthuri, but Deva breaks up the plan and makes his sister's marriage with another guy.
