Ramakrishna aka Rakhi (Jr. NTR) aspires to become a railway stationmaster like his father (Chandra Mohan). His love interest and close friend Tripura (Ileana D'Cruz) is a reporter in a TV channel who exposes atrocities against women in society. For Rakhi, his sister Gayathri (Manjusha) is everything. She is married off to a software professional (Ravi Varma) who plans to go to the USA. The greedy in-laws burn her alive for more dowry. Devastated by this, Rakhi takes the law into his own hands and starts to kill men for harassing women by burning them alive. A police officer named Meenakshi Iyer (Suhasini) convinces Rakhi to surrender to the law. Before surrendering, however, he has killed over 49 misogynists. Finally, in jail, he kills his sister's friend's murderer, and in the climax, the main villain ministers. His dialogues in the court are remarkable. The court drama forms the rest of the story.



The film has six songs composed by Devi Sri Prasad. The music was well received.
