The 2015 action-drama, Srimanthudu features Mahesh Babu and Shruti Haasan in the lead roles as Harshvardhan and Charuseela. Their story begins at a common friend’s birthday party. The two find each other interesting because they see the world in the same way. After a couple of ‘accidental’ meetings, Charu and Harsha become close companions. One day Charu invites Harsha to be her plus one at a wedding.
Harsha has people on the lookout for him as he had fearlessly warned the minister of the state to keep his goons away from his family. But as expected, they follow him everywhere. Harsha notices them behind his vehicle on the way to the wedding. After safely reaching the venue, Harsha excuses himself and ensures Shruti that he will be back in two minutes.
He leaves to meet the guys who had been following their car. He talks to one of the goons and tells him to go away with his men since a wedding isn’t the place for a fight. But he refuses to leave and claims Harsha is avoiding the fight because he is scared.
Harsha tells him he has two minutes to leave and ‘clear’ the scene. Just as he decides to leave, a man comes running to attack him from behind.
Before the goon can even hit Harsha, he draws a punch at him that makes the goon fall to the ground. And then picks him up while smiling at other guests, as if they were friends.
Harsha, then, disappears from the aisle to enter the venue and take care of other guys. He sees one of the goons following him and changes his route to avoid causing trouble to the guests.
Every time Harsha hits someone they become immovable. Some lie somewhere in a corner or just end up unconscious on a bench. When the space is clear, Harsha manages to handle three of them all at once.
After having done what is required, Harsha goes back to the leader of the gang to teach him a lesson. Already scared of Harsha’s skills, he asks for sympathy.
But since he had challenged Harsha, what he gets instead is a few punches and kicks. Harsha ends up throwing him in the dump.
Finally, as his two minutes come to an end, Harsha meets his girl, Charu again.
