Badri (Pawan Kalyan) is an ad agency director whose parents are settled in the USA. He girlfriend Vennela (Renu Desai), is a close family friend of Badri's family. Their parents want these two tie the knot. Badri and Vennela live luxuriously and aimlessly, as Vennela hasn't managed to complete her education yet. On one of those romantic evenings, Vennela tells Badri that she loves him very much. But, at the same time, she does not find the same sincerity in Badri's love. She challenges him: No other girl on earth could love him more than she does. Badri, who gets carried away in arguments, takes up the challenge immediately. Vennela shows a beautiful girl coming out of the temple and asks him to approach that girl. Then Vennela goes to the US to spend time with Badri's parents. Badri gets the contact information of the new girl in no time and finds out that her name is Sarayu. She is a pampered-yet-docile sister of Nanda (Prakash Raj). After a few tries he is able to corner Sarayu, to the extent that she expresses her love and puts forward a marriage proposal, for which Badri gives no response. Meantime, Vennela is back and can see the chemistry between Sarayu and Badri. She starts regretting the bet with Badri. Badri, too, is torn. Nanda, who is excessively fond of his sister Sarayu, guns for the blood of Badri, as he knows that Badri and Vennela are destined for marriage. How will this love triangle unfold?
