A thief comes face to face with Yama and must outwit him to return to the world of the living. Raja (Jr. N.T.R.) is a small time crook on the lookout for his big break. He seems to get lucky when a rich girl Maheshwari (Priyamani) falls for him. But fate has other things in store for Raja, who finds that he has to deal with none less than Yama (Mohanlal) before he can get what he deserves.
