Balayya, a tourist guide in Mahabalipuram, is not averse to stealing small items from the visiting tourists. Once when times are particularly tough, he and his friend Satyaraj decide to commit a bigger robbery. But the house they select turns out to be that of Jyothika, the popular film actress. Jyothika catches him the act and naturally, subsequent meetings between them are not particularly civil. Things come to a head When Jyothika (under manipulation by her scheming manager) accuses Balayya of misbehaving with her and this lands him in jail for three months. An enraged Balayya kidnaps Jyothika to teach her a lesson.
