Radha Krishna (Sharwanand) grows up admiring Lord Krishna. He does not miss any chance to know about Krishna and his stories of protecting Dharma. An incident makes him believe that he can help people in need by becoming a police officer just like Krishna did. After completing his studies, he helps the police bust a gang and gets a police job with special permission. Radha Krishna completes his training in Hyderabad and gets posted to a small village with a 0% crime rate in Warangal district. He feels unhappy in the beginning that he had not gotten any adventurous work that he had always dreamt of, but he later sees a girl named Radha (Lavanya Tripathi) and tries to win her heart.
Meanwhile, the home minister (Ashish Vidyarthi) of the state wants to become a chief minister and tries to influence the party observer and current chief minister (Kota Srinivasa Rao). However, the party observer declares his aide MLA Sujatha (Ravi Kishan) as a candidate for the post of Chief Minister, a very honest leader. On the other end, Radha Krishna gets transferred to the old city, Hyderabad. Suddenly, bomb blasts occur in Sujatha’s election campaign. In the bomb blast, Radha Krishna loses his colleagues and promises to take revenge on the responsibility for the bomb blasts. It is then revealed that those bomb blasts were planned by Sujatha himself to gain sympathy from the people as an aspirant for the Chief Minister position.
Meanwhile, due to Radha Krishna’s unpredictable actions, Sujatha gets suspicious on Radha and promotes him to his personal security. In the course of events, it is revealed by his henchmen that Radha Krishna is well-aware of Sujatha’s plans and actions. Then after some comical sequences and fights, Radha Krishna reveals Sujatha’s true nature in the public. Sujatha gets run over in a stampede and dies. Radha Krishna concludes with a message that the public must respect the police as it is them that protect and maintain the good in the society just like Lord Krishna did during his entire life. The film ends with Radha Krishna again getting transferred to another place.
