Satyam (Sumanth) is an aspiring lyric writer who has a knack for inadvertently getting misunderstood by the two people he cares for the most—his father (Malladi Raghava) and his love interest Ankita (Genelia D'Souza). Because he and his father don't get along, Satyam leaves home and starts living with his friends. A sensitive man and a talented writer, Satyam ghost-writes for a popular film lyricist. He wants to prove himself as a lyricist before expressing his love for Ankita. In the meantime, a flamboyant classmate of Ankita proposes to her. The movie then witnesses a turn of events which involves Ankita`s father (Kota Srinivas Rao,) who happens to be a good friend of Satyam. How Satyam overcomes his obstacles and finally succeeds in courting Ankita forms the rest of the story.Sumanth as SatyamGenelia D'Souza as AnkitaKota Srinivasa Rao as ShankarBramhanandam as LingamSatyam Rajesh as Satyam's friendTanikella Bharani as ChakradharKondavalasa as SimhadriSridhar as PrakashVarsha as SwatiRaghava Malladi as VishwanathNarsing Yadav as M.
