PlotEdit

Vikram (Kunal) is a happy-go-lucky guy who finds pleasure in playing pranks on people. He is a Casanova, who works in an advertising agency. He is in love with Swetha (Monal), who is very possessive about him. In one of the many practical jokes played by him, he tells Swetha one day that he is already married. He even introduces her to Priya (Mamtha) who is a model working for him and she convinces Swetha that they are married. Swetha is heartbroken and decides to marry a boy whom her parents chose. When Vikram comes to know this, he comes back and tells her that everything was a planned joke. But to his shock Priya who was his college mate turns against him and continues to tell Swetha that she is Vikram's wife. Priya has an axe to grind against Vikram, because of whom her father had to commit suicide while they were in college. Finally, all ends well.

Critical receptionEdit

The film received negative reviews. Bizhat called it "one of the most insipid films" and "There is nothing new about the story, presentation and even the acting of Kunal and Monal are disappointing".[6] Balaji of Thiraipadam wrote "Considering the poor quality of the end product in that case, it should not have been difficult for the director to eliminate his mistakes, polish his skills, extract better performances from his familiar cast and make a better movie. But it is surprising and unfortunate that he has taken quite a few steps backward from his debut feature here".[2] Screen wrote "Director Muralikrishna starts off with a good story but chooses a tame ending".[7]
