A crazy comedy using the conventions of mainstream Hindi cinema and set on a mythical island, Gajadweepa. The plot features crooked politicians and revolves around a gangster, Thimmaya alias T.K., ensconced in a home for the blind to cover up his criminal activities, and a popular film star Gajasimha (Simha). The star keeps escaping the traps set for him and becomes a successful politician. Good guys Avinash, a karate expert, and Mary (Lindsay), a foreign secret agent, take on the villains. Director Sathyu, better known for his poignant Partition drama Garam Hawa (1973), uses an idiom associated mainly with his stage career at IPTA.
