Nandu (Venkat) is an orphan and he is given shelter by a police officer Surendra Babu (Prakash Raj). Over a period of time, Surendra Babu encourages Nandu to do illegal activities and then Nandu becomes local don in Charminar area.

Keerthi (Abhiraami) warns the friends of Nandu who go to her college to threaten a couple who are in love. After coming to know about this, Nandu decides to approach Keerthi as Anand and make her fall in love with him. In the process, he actually falls in love with Keerthi and also realizes what harm he is doing to the society and to the neighborhood community.

Later on it is revealed that SP Surendra is none but the father of Keerthi. The rest of the film is about the battle between SP Surendra and Nandu.

Artists Performance: Venkat looks apt for the role of a street goon. He need to improve on his performance in emotional scenes. Prakash Raj looks out of place in the cop character as its not well developed. On the top of it, looks like somebody else has done dubbing for Prakash Raj in this film. Heroine Abhirami is tall and beautiful. She did well.

Technical Departments: Basic storyline is bad. One fail to understand why this story need to be remade just because its Kannada original 'Majestic' has become a super hit in Karnataka. Screenplay and direction of the veteran mass director Sagar is in a bad taste. Its very unfortunate that even a humble and low-profile director like Sagar has resorted to giving a statement that he would leave the film industry if Charminar flops. Dialogues by Vinay are over-dramatic. Two melody songs by Ghantadi Krishna are impressive. Fights by B Srikanth are OK. G Srinivas photography is average.

First half of the film is boring and the second half is pathetic. The characterizations of the Prakash Raj and Sakuntala lead to confusion. This film does not offer anything but for a couple of well picturised melodious songs. You can safely avoid watching this film.
