Siddharth (Nara Rohit), a reputed filmmaker, is accused of killing his wife Anjali (Darshana Banik). However, Siddarth claims he is innocent. An undefeated criminal lawyer, Veerendra (Jagapathi Babu), is appointed as the prosecutor. While the evidence suggests that Siddharth is guilty, Veerendra believes otherwise and works to exonerate him. Veerendra uncovers evidence proving that Anjali's former lover, Munna (Sritej), is guilty and helps Siddharth get acquitted. Soon after, however, Veerendra realizes that Siddharth has tricked him and that Siddharth was the true killer. A flashback portrays Siddharth as a proud man, unable to tolerate anyone tainting his image. One night, a fight with a farmer named Dharma Rao results in the latter slapping the former; an enraged Siddharth retaliates and knocks the farmer out. The incident severely impacts Anjali, who decides to divulge the truth. In an attempt to silence Anjali, Siddharth murders her. Back in the present, Veerendra targets Siddharth and brings out his true identity. The movie ends with the narcissistic and egotistic Siddharth committing suicide.
