Sudhir, a graduate who is unemployed for several years, finally lands a job by overcoming various obstacles.



In April 2016, it was reported that after having watched the success of actor Dhanush's Tamil films Velaiilla Pattadhari and Visaranai, producer Rockline Venkatesh bought its remake rights in Kannada from Dhanush's Wunderbar Films and chose director Nanda Kishore to lead the former film.[6] In August 2016, actor V. Ravichandran's son Manoranjan Ravichandran was selected to play the lead role even before his first film Saheba released. It was reported that actress Amala Paul would reprise her role Shalini in Kannada version as well.[7] However, it was later reported that actress Rachita Ram was chosen for the same role.[8] Finally, Bollywood actress Mishti was finalized for the role which apparently made her excited since she considered herself to be an ardent fan of actor Dhanush.[9] After the first schedule in Bengaluru, the team headed to Mysore to film a montage song and few sequences.

The Times of India" rated the film 3/5 and noted "Bruhaspati might not be VIP but it has its own charm with references to Rajkumar and Sudhir and other local analogies. This is a decent effort and one can watch it if you like films that are masala but not really over the top."[11]
