Raju is a kleptomaniac ie., a disease that he has a habit to steal things without his own knowledge. Raju's father runs a supermarket in Hyderabad. When Raju was in childhood a doctor called Dr.Saima has pledged to cure his disease by inventing medicine and has been trying ever since funnily and unsuccessful. Raju has constant break-ups with girls because of his disease and one day a girl Vennela finds about it and warns him that he should not love any girl else she will disclose the truth. So Raju accidentally runs into Tanvi, a college going girl. From there on he starts covering his disease with various funny reasons and thereby winning the love of Tanvi. After a few hilarious incidents, the parents of Tanvi agree with the marriage. But here the twist is Tanvi's father is the son of Suryanarayana who is a respected person in a village who hates thieves a lot. If he catches a thief he will cut his hand.
After entering the village and more funny incidents Raju makes everyone believe that kleptomaniac is his father's disease. Parallelly a group of terrorists is searching for Raju as he had unknowingly stolen their bomb which was to blast for a contract of 100 crores. So the terrorist group tries to follow him wherever he is. Meanwhile, Anji who used to work as a loyal servant in Suryanarayana's house has been ostracized from the village for stealing the ornaments of the god for 25 years. After 25 years Anji enters the village as a No.1 n in footwear businessman to take revenge against Suryanarayana. So he plans to steal the ornaments of god and put the blame on Suryanarayana, but Raju comes in between and accepts that he has stolen the jewels. Lingaraju is also kidnapped because he saw Anji's men stealing jewels. Anji and terrorists meet and strike a deal coincidentally, that to provide ornaments for them in exchange for the bomb which is in Raju's towel. So Raju searches for the real culprits and finally proves that Anji tried to take revenge on Suryanarayana. So Suryanarayana happily accepts the marriage of his granddaughter. On the other side, Raju unknowingly steals the trigger mobile and accidentally lifts the phone, so all terrorists died in the blast. In the post-credits Raju steals the wedding chain unknowingly and everybody laughs.
