1 Nenokkadine is a psychological entertainer featuring Mahesh Babu and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles and directed by Sukumar. Gautham (Mahesh Babu) is an Indian rockstar who has schizophrenic problems. He imagines that his parents were killed by 3 persons during his childhood. At one of his concerts, he sees one of those murders and chases him, and kills him in an imaginary fight. He then surrenders at a police station by admitting that he has killed 3 persons who killed his parents. But a reporter Sameera (Kriti Sanon) films the entire incident where Gautham fights with an imaginary figure. Gautham is released on a bail.
His doctor informs Sameera that Gautham is an orphan and because of that depression he created a story that 3 persons killed them. Sameera follows Gautham who goes to vacation on a Goa. She tries to confuse him by acting as two different persons so that she can confirm if Gautham can imagine other persons except for the three murderers. However, because of some miscommunications, they both part their ways.
Gautham falls for her and follows her to Hyderabad and saves her from goons who try to attack her. She later realises that the goons attacked her because she exposed that there is Hydrogen Cyanide in the seeds sold by Antony Rosario's seeds company. Meanwhile, Gautham sees Antony Rosario is the lobby and kills him thinking that he is imaginary wherein he is for real.
This incident clarifies that if the imaginary person is real, the existence of his parents and three people killing them is also real. He then gets back to a cab driver who used to chase him and receives a Rubik's cube and a British coin which his parents gave to the cab driver before getting killed. How Gautham cracks the puzzles and solves the mystery behind his parents' death forms the rest of the story.
1: Nenonakkadine received rave reviews from the critics and is rated as one of the best Telugu thrillers of all time. However, the audience couldn't connect to the film as it was more complex making the film a flop at the box office. Nevertheless, Mahesh Babu and Sukumar were praised by everyone for their brilliant efforts.
