Karthik (Vasishta N Simha) grew up as an orphan and was a servant in a house where a murder took place. The murderers took advantage of him being a child and orphan and framed him for the murder. So, Karthik grew up in an institution for juvenile offenders. The warden there was a kind man and believed his innocence and always encouraged him to study.

As a grown up man, Karthik becomes a police officer and joins a station as an SI. The senior officers there led by Devaraj (Shobhraj) are corrupt and are irritated by Karthik’s presence and honesty because he refuses to accept his cut in the bribes the station receives. When an old man is unjustly beaten up by the senior officer, Karthik helps the old man and buys him a new typewriter that had been damaged. This impresses Mayuri who works as a reporter and who had covered the story of the old man. She attempts to produce a story on Karthik but he refuses. In the meantime, Devaraj gives Karthik a gun and sends him on a difficult case just to get rid of him from the station. While tracking the suspect, Karthik loses his gun which is stolen by a pickpocket. This gun changes hands and soon gets used for a number of crimes for which Karthik now is blamed. There are more twists and turns to come …
