Summary: Typical early 80s Kannada crime story with ‘rebel star’ Ambarish. The unemployed Amarnath (Ambarish), helped by a politician, trains to be a cop and serves the state honestly until he discovers a criminal network that includes his politician-benefactor as well as his own father-in-law. Blackmailed into collaborating with them, Amarnath soon becomes integrated into the network. The narrative, however, ascribes to him a secret purpose in order to justify the collaboration. The film ends with Amarnath, now a politician heading a new government, decimating his entire cabinet of criminals with a machine gun.
