They are the cigarette-smoking, beer-guzzling, party-hopping generation. The
five-some - Anjana, Vijay, Asha, Jackie and Nani - go to celebrate the Valentine's
Day, far from the madding crowds, onto the Necklace Road abutting the Hussain
Sagar Lake, in the heart of the city. It's a perfect place for the girls to
let loose their fantasies - guzzling beer and dancing semi-nude. As for the
guys, it is a passionate outing with their girlfriends.
The new generation doesn't just slake its thirst with beers, it even finds swapping
lovers cool. And so the girls egg the guys to have a bet where the loser will
kiss the other's girlfriend. Jackie, who loses the bet, develops a grudge against
Vijay. As if this is not enough, a guy comes with his friends to partake of
the fun. And he is beaten to pulp by the boiling Jackie. On their way back home,
another "bloody" incident happens that rounds off the day for the group.
As the group is settling down in the college comes news of the first of the
murders - that of Anjana. And attempts are made on the lives of Vijay and Asha,
too. Clueless, the police gives way to a CBI officer, Arjun (Suman), who sets
about the task of unmasking the killer. Undeterred by the CBI officer, the Man
In The Black Mask goes about killing the members of the group.
At every stage, the needle of suspicion points to various persons, only to have
them be proved innocent. Who is this Man In The Black Mask? And what does he
want? Until the end, director Seenu manages to keep up the suspense. You will
not be able to find out who it is.
