This, the makers tell us, is the kind of movie you want to take your entire family to watch. A very good idea, we think. Misery loves company.
SP (Jagapathi Babu) is a chronic bachelor. And the only reason he puts up with the giggly bunch of hostelites next door is because his sister is one of them. But though he loves his sister and is, in fact, funding her entire life, he can never walk up to her and call her chelli. Because she'd look at him weird and maybe give him a slap or two. Reason being: she has no idea who he is. At this point you sense a fat blob of flashback just waiting to happen. But it doesn't, not yet.
Also at the start of the film is a charged courtroom scene, followed by a cranky Bhavani (Ramya Krishna) biting her lawyer's head off, walking menacingly up to SP (accompanied by menacing music) and threatening to take revenge for his victory in the trial and swearing to destroy him and chomp on his raw guts. This, of course, establishes that the two had, at some point, been romantically involved. More flashback that you're spared for now.
So thanks to all this stuff in the past that we won't go into right now, SP hates women. Which ensures that Fate, in all her perversity, flings all the world's population of nubile girls at him. Okay, not the entire population but a rather sizeable sample of it as represented by Satyabhama (Sangeeta). She does everything in the book to get his attention and assumes he's interested in her because he sings corny romantic songs to her at night. But that's not SP singing, it's his errant nephew, Sree Kumar (Venu).
We were trying to put off getting to this character, but now we must do the odious deed. Sree Kumar, or Stree Kumar as his family and loved ones know him, is played by Venu, who cannot act to save his life. He does manage a couple of expressions every now and again, but once you've seen them you'll pray for the return of his reassuringly vacuous mug. Fortunately he plays a flirt so there's not much call for him to possess any discernable IQ. The only saving grace is that he's paired with Suniel, who salvages many a horrible punchline that should otherwise have been declared dead on arrival.
For the first half of the flick they all continue in this lameass way that is supposed to make you laugh: a woman-hating SP living under the same roof as the girl-crazy Sree Kumar. After all the jokes (and the audience) have been exhausted, things take a turn for the serious, when Bhavani walks into one of their parties and effectively ruins it by slapping the lead dancer (Satyabhama).
Satyabhama turns out to be Bhavani's sister, but she's in love with SP. Bhavani won't allow this under any circumstance, as her brother was killed by SP. Or so she thinks. Actually SP is innocent and the actual culprit is Bhavani's father. But she doesn't care to listen to the truth, and frankly, neither do you because by now your hair has fallen asleep.
After a lot of confusion and emotional drama provided by the phenomenally irritating Nikitha, who plays SP's sister, things are sorted out. Bhavani and her pride are properly subdued and to complete the happy family scene, she falls at her man's feet and weeps on his shoes. Sree Kumar marries Nikitha, SP starts smiling more, and his estranged evil brother gets his face dipped in a cauldron of boiling sambar. Everybody leaves the theatre happy. Some on stretchers, some in an ambulance, but all of them happy.
