are shocked to see the leader of Avatarams henchmen

who forces Geeta to come with him, defying his boss
order. On the other hand Ajay remains helpless, while
Arya bravely ghts all the men and nally defeats them,
rescuing Ajay and Geeta. They walk on to the nearby
town, Aryas hometown. Being tired, the three go to bed.
The next morning they wake up and realize that Ajay is

win over his father. This leaves private time for Arya and
Geeta and they grow close to each other. Geetha starts
liking Arya. But when she tries to reveal it to him, Ajay
and his father return. Avataram agrees to get Ajay married to Geeta.


Geetanjali a.k.a. Geeta (Anuradha Mehta) goes to

Kanyakumari on a trip. She nds a poem in a diary left
on a beach and signs in it. Her anklet falls into the ocean
and a guy jumps into the water in front of her eyes but
no one sees him resurfacing. However, Geeta did not see
who jumped in the ocean. She dreams about the incident
frequently with the idea that the guy who jumped has died
but her friends ask her to forget it.

On the day of wedding, Geeta nds out that Arya was the
guy who dove into the sea for her anklet and realizes that
he came into her life much before Ajay. She realizes that
while Ajay blackmailed her into loving him, Arya just
wanted to see her happy. Geeta also realizes that Arya
truly loves her, while Ajay was just acting on his impulse
of wanting what he couldn't have. She leaves the wedding
hall in tears and confesses her love to Arya.

Ajay (Siva Balaji) is a spoiled brat, and is the son of local

MP Avataram (Rajan P. Dev). He likes to irt with beautiful girls and wants them to be his girlfriends. One day
he sees Geeta and proposes to her. When she refuses, he
threatens to jump from the top of college building. Being a weak-minded girl, Geeta accepts the proposal with
the thought that as some guy has already died for her and
she doesn't want someone to get hurt because of her and
starts dating him. Arya (Allu Arjun) is a happy-go-lucky
guy who enjoys his life with friends and kids. On his rst
day to the college, he sees Geeta who was just confessing her love to Ajay who was at the top of the college
building, threatening her. Charmed by her beauty, Arya
falls in love with her and proposes to her. She actually
rejects his proposal saying that she is already committed
to Ajay. One day Avataram arranges a party in his house
and it so turns out that Ajay introduces Geeta to his father and persuades him to x their marriage. Ajays father, who initially pretended to accept his sons marriage
with Geeta, turns tables upside down by introducing another girl Lalasa and announces that his son is going to
marry Lalasa. He threatens his son not to marry anyone
except Lalasa. Being embarrassed by the situation and
helpless, Ajay sits down and starts to get frustrated. Arya,
who loves Geeta so much that he never hesitated to help
her, decides to bring Ajay to Geeta and helps them elope.
On their way, they are followed by Avatarams henchmen.
The three youngsters nd a train and get into it.
