But when the 'wicked man' comes to know of Mani Babu's film, he hatches a plot to kill Mani Babu. Ironically Ravi is accused for the murder of his friend.

Ravi absconds and reaches at the den of Dacoit Sher Singh, a lion of lions, who when sees Ravi Kumar jumps to his feet because he is a fan of the matinee idol. For him it turns out to be a day of merry making.
