A happy family consisting of father (Girish Karnad) and two sons Chiru (Chiranjeevi Sarja) and Kumar Govind live in a village Srinivaspur, Kolar. Chiru is the younger son while Kumar is married with a daughter. The family is respected in the village and known for their generosity and honesty.

Chiru is a very mild young man and has a mobile store with his friend (Chikkanna). He is not interested in violence and avoids fights whenever possible even if he gets hit by someone. His father and family make fun of this character and keep asking him to get more brave in life. But Chiru is happy with his life and in love with a teacher (Radhika) in the village and only focused on her.

In the meantime a notorious don who runs the mining mafia in the village dies and his two righthand men start fighting with each other to take control of the gang. One of them Narasimha (Ravishankar) is notorious and his path crosses with Chiru’s family…
