Summary: Although the film’s title refers to a famous real-
life Police Chief in Bangalore, T.S. Sangliana,
the film bears no relation to actual events.
Shankar Nag plays the cop assigned to bust a
notorious gang. After several successful raids
and a series of disguises, the plot thickens
when Sangliana is charged with inhuman
behaviour. The film’s villain Vikram (Devaraj) is
a criminal backed by his politician father
(Vajramuni), while the voice of morality is
provided by honest journalist Mahesh, whose
daughter (Bhavya) is the film’s female lead.
Mainly a vehicle for action hero Nag, whose
star-entry is enhanced by an unusual and
relatively autonomous narrative device when
fellow megastar Ambarish first appears
pretending to be Sangliana.
