Chantigadu (Ravi Teja) is the son of a head constable Venkata Swamy (Kota Srinivasa Rao). Chanti is a guy with a carefree attitude. He is beaten by a rival gang at night and was rescued by a beautiful girl Suchitra (Rakshitha). She pays his hospital bills and donates her blood. She is gone from the hospital by the time Chanti became conscious. When Chanti's friends inform him about the girl who rescued him, he starts loving her immediately for her goodheartedness, though he did not see her. Suchi later turns out to be the daughter of the city police commissioner Vipra Narayana (Prakash Raj).

Chanti meets Suchi in the college for the first time and expresses his love. When she does not agree, he tries to tease her. She complains to her father, and he takes Chanti to the police station and severely beats him before being rescued by his father and his fellow constables. Even though Chanti is beaten by Narayana, he becomes more adamant to win his ladylove. He proposes to Suchi again in the college. She asks him to jump from the building. When he is ready to do so, she agrees to his love.

However, Narayana is not happy about their relationship and ropes in some rowdies to amputate his leg. Suchi comes to know about this and runs to help him, but is met with an accident. Both of them get admitted to the same hospital, and they unite there also. Narayana finally arranges her marriage with another person, to which she openly opposes and tries to commit suicide. Chanti comes and rescues her, but Narayana still wants to get her married to a man of his own choice. He also engages goons to kill Chanti. Chanti finally escapes all the troubles and meets the DGP (Kaikala Satyanarayana) to help him to marry his love. The DGP finally suspends Narayana and arranges Chanti's marriage in the police station. Finally, Chanti appears for civil services and is selected for IPS.



This is a remake of the Kannada film Appu directed by Puri Jagannath Which was the debut film of Puneeth Rajkumar.[5]
