Storyline

Radhakrishnan (Dhanush) alias Raakhi is a 10th grade dropout youngster who is looked down upon by his father (Pratap Pothen), because of his sharp contrast to the rest of the family, who are well qualified in education. Rocky spends most of his time in a mechanic shop with his colleagues (Mayilsami, Nellai Siva and others). Rocky's friends advise him to love and marry a well educated girl so that his name will be added with her name after marriage i.e., indirectly he gets a degree after his name. So, earnestly he looks around by hovering around women's colleges to find a perfect girl for his mission. He finally succeeds in his attempt and makes Gayathri (Tamannaah Bhatia), a well-educated rich girl fall for him. He starts to honestly love her and takes her for shopping to a mall where she is confronted by a group of rogues who work for Rami Reddy (Sayaji Shinde) who is a rival of Samarasimha Reddy (Suman). Her father is Samarasimha Reddy (Suman) a notorious don in Andhra who protects ... Written by Ashik ph
