Aditya Rao (Venkatesh), mostly addressed as Adi, returns to boxing as a coach after being subjected to corrupt policies of the Boxing Association headed by Dev Khatri (Zakir Hussain). As Adi fails to win a sure shot medal for the country due to Khati’s jobbery, Adi’s wife leaves him for another man, and he chooses to quit boxing.
Rameswari aka Ramudu (Ritika Singh) is the younger sister of Lakshmi aka Lux (Mumtaz Sorcor), with the latter wanting to get into the police academy using her 8-year-old career as a boxer.
As Aditya gets transferred to Vishakhapatnam following allegations of sexual harassment, Ramudu is a local girl known to be a ‘Deyyam pilla’ - someone who takes no nonsense, is rebellious and arrogant.
After seeing Ramudu getting into a brawl with the judges at a zonal boxing event, Adi realises her natural flair for the sport and takes upon himself to make her a world class boxer. He also initially offers her money to lure her to train under him.
Still a grumpy coach, the narration progresses with how Adi exposes Ramudu to rigorous training to master the skills of the sport. Though initially, both the hot-headed coach and his student don’t get along well, learning of Adi’s commitment to the sport and his true intentions of making her a champ changes Ramudu’s attitude and she commits to walk the extra mile to be what her coach wants her to be.
