Summary: Complicated crime narrative dedicated mainly
to star/director Ravichandran’s self-promotion.
The confrontation between the gangster
Ranadheera (Ravichandran) and the Police
Inspector General (Lokesh), as well as a love
story featuring the Police Chief’s daughter
(Khushboo), both of which lead to the reform
of the hero, form the main plot. The film,
however, works with several other ‘reflexive’
devices, including references to Ravichandran’s
earlier hit Premaloka (1987), direct address to
the audience and a scene in which the hero
narrates the film to school children.
