The story revolves around Vijay (Sudheer Babu) who wants to be a child illustrator who has a father named Sarvesh (Naresh) who is really interested in movies. Sameera Rathode (Aditi Rao Hydari) is a well known actress. Vijay doesn't like movies because he thinks everything in movies is fake. One day a man asks Sarvesh to his house for a movie shooting in which Sameera is the main actress. Sameera who can't speak Telugu asks Vijay for help. In this process Vijay realizes some actors are different and eventually falls in love but is turned down by Sameera. The rest of the story is about the reason behind the rejection and how Vijay and Sameera get back together.

Times of India rated 2.5/5 and says "The flashes of brilliance are overshadowed by a predictable storyline and by the time the climax is over, the only feeling you're left with is one of disappointment." 123 Telugu rated 3.25/5 and says "a simple love story that has been showcased in an engaging manner. Beautiful emotions, sparkling chemistry between the lead pair are major assets. However, the classy narration and slow pace may not go well with a section of the audience." The Hindu praised the performances and direction and says "Sammohanam works because its characters are vulnerable and human. Their flaws boost the character arcs."
