An out and out action thriller with Puneeth Rajkumar playing a double role.

Puneeth is a police officer who as part of an official assignment investigates a village that seems to be hidden away from all government records. Determined to unearth the conspiracy behind the mystery village, Puneeth ends up exploring history back to the period of Indian Independence. This is where the double role comes in with Puneeth playing his grandfather in pre-independence India. Vikram Singh is the main villain and has a double role too.

Pavan Wadeyar went all out with this action thriller giving Puneeth a minigun to bulldoze through British and enemy soldiers among other heavy-duty action sequences.
