The story starts off by showing gun smuggling and gun running via bags of mirchi (dried red peppers) throughout the country to nefarious dacoits and criminals. Shortly after one group gets their shipment of guns, they block off a road with rocks and stop a wedding bus, kill the conductor and the driver, drive everyone from the wedding party out of the bus and gun them all down and steal their gold ornaments/jewelry and other valuables. Even women and children are not spared. This leads the government police department to establish a special task force headed by Hyderabad Crime Branch, ACP Siddharth IPS (Manchu Vishnu). They go to Chittoor (the location of the wedding bus massacre) and set up their own road block and capture some of the criminals/dacoits who were responsible as well as arrest the SI of that area. During interrogation, they get a lead back to Hyderabad, but their superior officer wants them to bring the SI to him before the Press gets wind of this arrest and things get blown out of proportion. While taking the SI to their superior officer, the SI cruelly teases and bullies and gets pushed out the back of the jeep and gets run over by a lorry and this incident is filed as “an accident”.
Flashback to 4 years ago; Siddharth and Anusha (Anushka Shetty) both attend the same dance class and like each other but neither wants to make the first move to express their love for the other. Siddharth tricks Anusha into expressing that she has feelings for him but he fails to show up as promised that evening and is absent for the next 4 years.
Back to the present, Khadar Vali aka “KV” (Jackie Shroff) is a singer who has been invited back to the dance/song school to put on presentations. During an outing, Siddharth realizes that he is being followed, but brainless jabber mouth Anusha, not believing that Siddharth is an ACP, confronts the tail and nearly screws up the arrest that Siddharth had planned with his team. The perp gets stabbed in the police van before he could spill any information.
Another flashback by Siddharth to Karim (Rahul Dev) shows why he was MIA for 4 years and spent thqat time to do IPS and became an ACP…his father had his neck broken is in bad health as a result, his sister-in-law is a widow because her husband was murdered, and his uncle has sacrificed everything in his life to help the family cope with their troubles. All these troubles came to happen because the Police were working with the criminal and immediately intimated that a witness (Siddharth’s father played by Sarath Babu) had came forward to identify and testify against him. The criminal and his gang went after Siddharth’s father and in the process killed Siddharth’s brother.
Back to the present, the task force uses the information in the dead criminal’s cell phone that they captured to find when and where the next consignment of illegal weapons will come through and stake out the place in the hopes of capturing it and the criminal smugglers. They find that Pulla Rao is one of the smugglers, and shortly after he appears, a lorry containing large shipment of illegal firearms shows and the bags of mirchi are off loaded onto various jeeps for further distribution. While trying to apprehend Pulla Rao, a shootout ensues. Karim arrives to help out, but Pulla Rao and his goons get away and Siddharth breaks his leg.
Back in Rameswaram, the leader of the smuggling ring gets a phone call reporting that their entire shipment was seized, but Pulla Rao and Sardar managed to avoid capture. It is then revealed that the ring leader is none other than Khadar Vali aka KV (Jackie Shroff) who is now under pressure from his clients not just for more weapons that they have paid for but also for ammunition that is running low (ammunition was also seized), and what use is a gun without ammunition? It would be nothing more than an expensive and very clumsy club. The smuggling ring try to buy off (bribe) Siddharth and if he doesn’t take the bribe and stay out of their business, then they will kill him. After fighting off the smuggler, Siddharth uses Karim’s help to navigate a facial construction software to create an image of his attacker and distribute that to all police stations to see if they can get an ID on the culprit. During the scuffle at the dhaba where they seized the large shipment, Siddharth remembers that something came out of one of the smugglers bag and flew into the underbrush. He goes back to the dhaba and traces out his steps and finds Sardhar’s horoscope. They use this information to back trace the where Sardhar probably lives and therefore the point of origin of where the illegal weapons are entering the country and think that it is Rameswaram. There, KV finds out that the ACP he was looking for was actually Siddharth.
