The film had a worldwide release on June 3, 2016. Upon release, the film received positive critical response and became successful at the box-office. The film was remade in Tamil in 2018 as 60 Vayadu Maaniram.
Venkob Rao (Anant Nag) suffers from Alzheimer's and has been admitted to an old age home by his career driven son Shiva (Rakshit Shetty). Now settled in Mumbai, Shiva has come down to Bengaluru for a business meeting, the outcome of which could fulfill his long standing dream of moving to the United States. Venkob Rao goes missing when Shiva takes him out shopping.
Meanwhile, a local civil servant is murdered while uncovering a land scam and Ranga (Vasishta N. Simha) is entrusted with making the murder seem like an accident. With Venkob Rao going missing, Shiva is forced to confront the decisions he has made in the past when his dream of going abroad is all but realized.
He begins looking for Venkob Rao reluctantly with the help of doctor Sahana (Sruthi Hariharan) from the old age home. Along this long journey, Shiva starts discovering little facets of his father's personality while forging a friendship with doctor Sahana. A clueless Venkob Rao ends up crossing paths with Ranga and his annoying young assistant Manja (Ravikiran) who are in the process of disposing the body of the civil servant. Kumar, (Achyuta Kumar) a good samaritan returning home, gets entangled with Ranga, Manja and Venkob Rao. Shiva's search for Venkob Rao allows him to find all that's missing in his life while Ranga in Venkob Rao's presence finds something that he had lost years ago.
Ranga, Manja and Venkob stay in Kumar's home. Ranga threatens the family with death if they expose the truth about the murder to the police. To cover up the murder, however, Ranga's boss orders Ranga to kill Kumar, his family and Manja, which Ranga reluctantly accepts. However, he doesn't proceed with the murder and lies that he has to his boss. Manja is in love with a dancer Reshma who happens to be a cohort of Ranga's boss. Manja inadvertently reveals that Ranga has not carried out the murder by telling Reshma this. When Ranga's boss comes to know that he has not committed the murder, he sends a cop to murder Ranga. In the fight that ensues, the cop shoots Ranga who manages to kill the cop before dying. Deeply saddened by the death of Ranga, Manja avenges his death by killing his boss and Reshma.
After this, Kumar who sees the missing poster of Venkob Rao calls Shiva and informs him about the whereabouts of his father. Shiva emotionally reunites with his father and also marries Sahana.
Having announced of making the film in 2014, Hemanth Rao, who made his debut as a director with the film, began filming 11 January 2015. The first schedule of the shooting took place predominantly in Bengaluru featuring lead actors Anant Nag and Rakshit Shetty. With Sruthi Hariharan, Achyuth Kumar and joining Vasishta N. Simha, the next schedule began on 19 January. Vasishta was initially in talks to play the character that Rakshit Shetty played in the film. Rao revealed that Nag plays the role of Venkob Rao, a regular office-goer in Bengaluru in the 1970s, who after having worked at the same company for over 40 years, goes missing. It was revealed in September 2015 that Nag would be portraying an Alzheimer's patient. Talking about his what inspired him to choose such a subject, he said, "As a kid, I used to watch the missing reports on television news. The following day, I used to wonder what happened to those who had gone missing the previous day - were they found? When I started meeting people who have had people go missing in their family, I realized that, for the family, the lack of closure about the person who has gone away is the most important aspect. While this was one thread of the story, the other important element is the relationship between a father and a son, something that I have always been fascinated with."
