PlotEdit

Shivam (Sudeep) is a burglar who loots the huge unaccounted money stocked by filthy rich businessmen. His look alike Sathyam (Sudeep) is a docile kind-hearted youngster who does real estate business in all fair means. Sathyam has a lover Subha (Nithya Menen) who is a upright and brave girl.

The police needs to nab the burglar. Sathyam himself launches a complaint that it is his brother Shivam who does all the crimes. A corrupt Police ACP (Ravi Shankar) suspects that it is the same person who cheats everyone with dual identity. But he does not have the evidence to prove his claim.
