Movie Plot

In a private school, a ninth-class girl named Rishita  (Anusha Nuthula) meets a tragic fate as someone mysteriously murders her in the depths of a forest.

As the investigation starts, Sandhya (Shruthi Mol), a skilled private detective, dedicates herself to solving the perplexing murder case. Pallavi (Goldie Nissy), another spy agency operative, is also a part of the investigation.

As the duo (Sandhya and Pallavi) begins their investigation, suspicions arise, and the school's principal, Ramesh, becomes a person of interest. They also discover that Neha (Hasini Rai), the classmate of Rishita, holds no fondness for her.

 Amidst this unfolding mystery, Sandhya, the private detective, goes missing, leaving her devoted lover, Karthik, to take charge of the investigation.
