Young Hero Nara Rohit has come up with yet another different story as he always does. He tried to impress the audience along with senior actor Jagapathi Babu. As the movie is coming up in the direction of Paruchuri Murali after a long gap, there were huge expectations on this subject. Nara Rohit also wanted to get a commercial hit out of it. Let us see if the movie could fulfill their wishes.

Story:

Siddharth(Nara Rohit) is seen as a movie director who wants to film ‘Mahabharath’. During the process he happens to meet Anjali( Darshana Banik) and falls in love. They even get married. After three years of their marriage Anjali is murdered. Sidharth is taken to remand on the allegation of killing his wife. Public prosecutor Veerendra (Jagapathi Babu) takes up his case and sets him free, based on the evidences he find in the murder spot. He proves that it is Munna who used to pressurize Anjali to love him once, who killed her but not Siddharth.  After the case is solved, Siddharth sends a costly car as gift to Veerendra which he denies to accept saying he will stand only on the side of truth and doesn’t like to accept such gifts. But much to his surprise he later comes to know that there is some mystery related to this murder yet, which is to be unveiled and it seems to be Siddharth who manipulated him and used him to get out of this case. Who is the actual murderer? How does Veerendra manage to solve this mystery forms the rest of the story.
