Pencil Parthasarathy (Nani) is a small time crime novel writer who watches hit English language movies and rewrites their stories as local Telugu novels. Meanwhile a great robbery takes place in the city where ₹ 300 crores are stolen by 5 individuals. As soon as the robbery is finished, the 5 are found murdered and the money stolen.
5 bereaved women (1 aged woman, 1 middle aged woman, 1 young woman, 1 teen and a small child) who lost their loved ones (the 5 dead robbers) come together and try to find someone who would help them avenge their loved ones. They approach Pencil to help them figure out the culprit. Pencil, at first, refuses to help but sensing a good (and probably his first) original story, agrees to help them.
After a few hilarious twists and turns, the rag tag group finally narrows down on their main suspect: Dev (Karthikeya Gummakonda).
Dev is a small time ambulance driver turned F1 Racer. As an ambulance driver, Dev never lost a patient due to his skilled and prompt driving of patients to the hospitals. But in order to become a successful race car driver, he needed money. In order to get the money, he joined a group of cancer patients (the original five) who were planning on a robbery to set aside money for their loved ones (the 5 women). After the robbery, Dev killed the 5 men, stole the money, and became a successful race car driver. The rest of the movie revolves around how the Gang brings Dev to justice for revenge, with Pencil as their Gang Leader.
