Agent Netra (Chiranjeevi), is a Casanova who works for a detective agency run by Satyanarayana (Ranganath). He is assigned to track down the underworld activities of a bigwig who leads the Illegal drug trade. He uses his elder daughter Rekha to experiment on his drugs. Netra reaches a hideout followed by a fight sequence. Netra is shown to have died in a fire.
Agent Vijayasanthi is in love with Netra and takes up his mission. She arrives in the village where Netra died and meets Yadagiri, a double of Netra (actually Netra himself) as a servant at her guest house. He saves her from drowning and he reveals how he escaped. They join forces.
Vijayasanthi's grandma unknowingly misplaces the photos of sisters Hamsa Lekha and Swarna Rekha. Vijayasanthi suggests to Netra that they trap Rekha to learn of the activities, but unaware of the photo confusion, she gives him a pic of Radha instead. Netra traps Radha and she falls in love with him. Netra and Vijayasanthi travel to Malaysia trying to reach the roots of the underworld. The bigwig reveals that Rekha is not his own daughter and that he had experimented on and killed her. Radha is unable to withstand her father's cruelty and tries to shoot him, but he escapes. Netra and Vijayasanthi attack the villains and destroy their lair. Vijayasanthi and Radha become good friends and the three of them unite to end the story.
