Story starts with divakaram (Rajendraprasad) coming late to video-shoot a marriage, where he sees Shobhana and falls head over heals in love. He then gets a hold of Shobhana¡'s maternal uncle (Pradeep Shakti) and gets information about Shobhana. He gathers that Shobhana respects only the people who are self sufficient and straightforward. He also finds out that she is not married and getting transferred to Rajamundry (where he stays) soon. She is a railway clerk. So divakaram comes back to the Rajamundry and gets permission from a doctor (Shubha) to use the front veranda in her house for his video shop. In order to secure the capital he uses all kinds of tricks. He blackmails (Jayalalita), cheats (Mallikarjuna Rao) and claims a chit which he never was a member of, and so on. Finally starts the video shop. That's when Shobana enters the scene. All the while Pradeep Shakti writes him letters in Shobana's name making Divakaram assume that Shobana is in love with him. Finally when she lands in Rajamundy he approaches for marriage. It's then that he realizes that he had been cheated by Pradeep Shakti. Meanwhile, Shobana finds out all of divakaram’s mischief through the neighbors. To teach him lesson, Shobana puts forward a deal that she would marry him only if he stays out of cheating, and does not utter a lie in a month. Divakaram goes for it.

Here we see all the problems of divakaram gets into because of the deal he had with shobana. He discloses the murder done by his friend. This enrages his friend who comes out of jail as there is no proof of his murder. In the climax his friend gets killed and divakaram goes to jail and comes back to win the hand of shobana.
