is the story of an innocent college student whose life takes
a strange turn after an incident. A gang plans to kill an
important politician. The hero is dragged into it. Surmounted
by problems, he turns emotional. How hero reacts to this forms
the theme. The film leaves a message that a man can achieve
something in life only when he can shape himself to face any

who added an additional V to his name in the fond hope of
being successful at box office, expressed confidence that
this film would bring him the much needed success. "For

to don a performance-oriented role in her first Telugu venture.
Dina, by now popular with the title song of mega tele-serial
Pinni, is scoring the music and he has come up with five melodious
numbers, according to the producer D Peddababu.
