Movie Plot

Two rivalry Crime Syndicates are running in Bangalore, India. One group is Golden Horse, led by Joseph Anthony (Sarath Kumar), who operates from Europe. The other group, namely Gayakwad Syndicate,  is led by Vijay Gayakwad (Meka Srikanth).

Some unknown attackers kill Jayadev Gayakwad (Madhusudhan Rao), the father of Vijay, who realizes that his family is also in danger.

Vijay hires the services of a security agency and hires Santhosh (Puneeth Rajkumar) as his bodyguard. Santhosh saves Vijay's family from all sorts of dangers. He also helps Vijay in his business dealings.

In the meantime, Vijay's sister Nisha Gayakwad (Priya Anand) returns to India after completing her medical studies in Singapore. Vijay requests Santhosh to protect his sister too.

Nisha soon faces an attack and has to escape with Santhosh to a nearby village, and they spend some time together. After safely returning home, Nisha tells his brother that she loves Santhosh and wants to marry him. After initial reluctance, Vijay approves their collaboration.

Vijay hosts a grand party where he announces to hand over his business to his sister Nisha. Vijay also announces the life collaboration of Santhosh and Nisha. However, Joseph's goons enter the party and recognize Santhosh as James.

Who is Santhosh? What is his real name? Is he playing some game with Vijay and Nisha? How does Antony Joseph (Sarath Kumar) know Santhosh/James? The rest of the film satisfactorily replies to all these queries.
