In a cinema studio, an assistant director who aspires to become a film director named Abhilash, aka Abhi is insulted by one of the directors, and there he challenges that he will become a good director with a good film in a few days. Another producer likes Abhi's hard work and suggests that he do a gangster movie. He decides to direct the biopic of a gangster. In search of a gangster, he finds the ruthless gangster named Gaddalakonda Ganesh, aka Gani lives in the town of Gaddalakonda.
Abhi lands in Gaddalakonda and starts learning about Gani with the help of his friend Chintakayyi. Abhi traps Bujjama, the granddaughter of Gani's chef and she falls in love with Abhi, who realizes this and reciprocates her feelings. After some hilarious scenes, Abhi and Chintakayyi befriend Thuppaki, one of Gani's henchmen. Later the duo learns that the Thuppaki is helping Prabhakar, one of Gani's rivals, to kill Gani for the position of Gani. However, Gani acknowledges this, plans and to kill Thuppaki. Gani also kidnaps Abhi and his friend.
Abhi says the truth, and Gani feels happy that they were taking the biopic of him, and he narrates the whole story, including his criminal activities. From childhood, Gani starts beating people for money. Later he does settlements for M.L.A. Gani, also a fan of Sridevi. Later, Gani falls for Sridevi, aka Devi, a computer student, but she doesn't accept him because of his aimless behavior. Later she also reciprocates his feelings after he rescues her from ragging. But Devi's father refuses to accept their relationship due to the caste system. Devi and Gani decide to elope from Gaddalakonda, and Gani refuses to kill someone for the M.L.A because he wants to leave behind his rowdyism.
The M.L.A informs the police about Gani's whereabouts. The police come to the railway station and beat up Gani while Devi's father threatens Devi to marry the bridegroom whom he chose, otherwise he will order the police to kill Gani. Devi reluctantly marries a police officer who belongs to her caste. Another M.L.A, with the lawyer, comes to the police station and says that Gani's M.L.A had informed the police of Gani's whereabouts.
He then goes to his M.L.A and slits his throat in front of his mother. Then Gani's mother complains against him. But Gani claims in court that his mother is mute. From that day onwards, she refuses to speak with Gani. Now, Bujjama learns about Abhi and confronts the latter. In the party for Abhi returning to Hyderabad, Bujjama expected Gani to act as a protagonist in his biopic. Gani agrees against Abhi's wishes.
However, Abhi changes his mind by listening to the theater operator's words and his passion for directing a movie, but he can't do it due to his bad adaptation. Then Abhi appoints the acting coach Muni Manikyam for Gani and his gang. Later the acting coach praises Gani for his acting skill due to his ruthless behavior, and also the acting coach humiliated Gani and his gang while they were training. The shooting begins. The title of the film is Settimaar.
By understanding the difficulties in directing the movie, Bujjama reconciles with Abhi. But things take a turn when Gani also changes his mind and falls for Bujjama. In the audio launch, Gani announced that he gifted a villa to Abhi and wants to marry Bujjama. The movie is released and opens with a tremendous response. At the same time, Abhi elopes with Bujjama. Gani learns of this and decides to kill Abhi. Meanwhile, Gani's craze increases due to his acting skills. The people who fear Gani are now asking for selfies with him and his autograph.
The little daughter of Thuppaki, who also fears when Gani comes to fondle her, gives a kiss and praises his acting skills. Gani's mother, who refused to talk to him in the past, speaks to him. By seeing all these, Gani spares Abhi and Bujjama and gives up his rowdy career. Prabhakar's henchman asks him to include him in Gani's next movie, which is being directed by Sukumar. Abhi's paternal uncle (Devi Prasad) takes Gani's criminal evidence (tape recorder and files) and hands it over to the D.C.P, who turns out to be Devi's husband.
Devi takes the evidence (tape recorder) and grinds it in a blender. When the D.C.P asks Devi why she had ground the evidence, She replies that it's because the D.C.P couldn't keep his promise to not incriminate Gani, for which in return Devi wouldn't think about Gani. This indicates that Devi still loves Gani. Later, Devi also praises him. Abhi uses Gani's gang for threatening stars like Nithin to act in his film. Abhi marries Bujjama, and Gani remains single.
