The story revolves around Maya (Sonia Agarwal), a college student, who always wants to triumph in all her endeavors. She comes across a middle class youth, Cheenu (Srikanth), a happy-go-lucky-youngster, who strives to work hard to get his sisters married well.

A few encounters (Maya and Cheenu) result in wordy duels between them leading to Maya challenging Cheenu that she will make him fall in love with her. Her further course of action to achieve her challenge leaves Cheenu frustrated and he decides to take revenge on her by pretending to fall in love with her.

Maya, who starts to spend more time with Cheenu discovers his kindness and eventually develops an honest love towards him. She even helps him in setting his own business house. Slowly Cheenu too realises Maya's nobleness and generosity and falls in love with her.

Trouble comes in the form of her brothers who threaten Cheenu of dire consequences. Cheenu resolves to earn more and become rich and then hold the hands of Maya. But Maya has other plans. Whether or not the couple marries forms the rest of the story.
