He is naughty and never ready to compromise his beauty for already settled boy. The female protagonist Ananya (Radhika Pandit) is such a grand master piece in the society, no one can miss her.

The mood moves to emotional trip when Ananya in a forced mindset agrees to marry Deva (Shaam). Deva a big don has transformed himself for leading a convincing life with Ananya. Ananya agrees for this match because of her parent’s last wish was to marry a transformed Deva.
Ananya in a small changeover moves to her friend Muskaan place. Santhu follows Ananya that leads to some more developments for the good of Santhu. In the Muslim family Santhu is introduced as husband to Ananya. Santhu on the other hand turns a savior of life in this family. This further builds up love of Santhu and Ananya.
Now how to get rid of Deva? For that you have to watch the climax. It is action and comedy filled climax for you. Finally Santhu in the marriage hall with Ananya says ‘Nav Yavathidru Nimmore’ – a dialogue precisely written for would be couple in real life.
It is perfectly measured dialogue, songs, situations for Yash, rocking star of Kannada cinema. In fact he has excessive build up in this film. In the coming days he could be easily called as ‘Build Up Raaja’. Yet, Yash is a watchable youngster with great potentiality.
