The story is about a family of four brothers. Shankru (Vishnuvardhan) is the eldest of all and the head of the family.His only aim in his life is bringing up his brothers and make them lead a respectable life in society. He is so rigid that he sacrifices his personal life and remains a bachelor. He feels that if he gets married then his personal interests might hamper the growth of his brothers.
Its time for the three brothers to get married. The wedding of his two brothers (Vishnuvardhan, Abhijith) takes place without any problems. But it is during the wedding of his third brother(Shashi Kumar) that the movie takes a turn. We have a villain in Avinash who is also the brother of the girl whom the senior Vishnuvardhan had refused to marry. Shankru comes to Avinash's house to ask for his consent to give his daughter to his brother. Avinash eyes this as the right time to seek revenge and destroy the united family. He asks Shankru to leave the family and go on a exile. The remaining part of the movie is how the brothers unite and make Avinash aware of his mistakes.
Its a movie for the entire family.The subject is good, the making is perfect, the artist contribution is remarkable and Kalyan's lyrics is simply superb. Also, the emotional scenes are a highlight to the movie. The comedy is also pretty good and enjoyable.
Its superb acting from Vishnuvardhan. He carries the movie entirely on his shoulders. The elder Vishnuvardan's costume selection is perfect. His emoting capacity, patience deserve rain of applause. He brings a quiet intelligence and depth to his role.He proves himself worth the sobriquet of the 'superstar' of Kannada cinema.
ShashiKumar, Abhijith and Prema have rendered good support and have performed well. Comedy scenes involving Tennis Krishna and Lakshmi Devi are enjoyable. The songs are a added attraction to the movie. Kalyan leaves his mark on the audience with his catchy tunes and lyrics.
