Melodama about an honest lawyer’s fight for justice against corrupt politicians. The lawyer- apprentice Ashok (Venkatesh) falls for, and later teams up with, the courageous female cop Vijaya (Vijayashanti in her trademark role, cf. Pelli Pustakam, 1990). Ashok’s mentor, an honest lawyer (Vijayakumar), is killed by the evil gangster Venkatarathnam (Srinivasa Rao). The hero takes the law into his own hands since legal systems are unable to trap the real villain. Ashok’s cop girlfriend initially opposes this, but the hero eventually succeeds in eliminating the entire gang of crooks. The film is known mainly for having established 90s Telugu star Venkatesh and for Srinivasa Rao’s acclaimed performance as the comic villain.
