Story

Sarkar (Suniel Shetty) is a wrestling coach and he trains Krishna (Kichcha Sudeepa) to win the wrestling national championship. Because of a mistake that Krishna commits, Sarkar makes him leave his house and also orders him not to use the skill that was thought by him. After four years Krishna enters into the finals of pro boxing championship and determines to become the winner of the tournament. What mistake did Krishna commit? Why he changed his sports from wrestling to boxing? Did he win the pro boxing championship or not? Forms the rest of the story.

Performances

It's Kichcha Sudeepa one man show from start to end and the hard work that he has put in the film can be sensed in every frame. Not only the wresting, boxing matches but also in the emotional part of the movie Kichcha Sudeepa has done a brilliant work and reminds everyone why he is the Baadshah of Kannada film industry.

Aakanksha Singh impresses with her cute acting, she did justice to the role given to her in the film. Sharath Lohitashwa was fine in the boxing coach role. Appanna was the comic relief in the movie as Pappu. Suniel Shetty has done a commonable job as Sarkar and wrestling coach. He has brought the emotional depth into the film and his scenes with Kichcha Suddep has come out really good.

 Sushant Singh as Raja Rana Pratap Varma is fine, there was fall in the character from start to end but he was fine as one of the villains. Kabir Duhan Singh got a key role after a long time and he utilized it perfectly, he looked apt for his character.
