Following the failure of the megabudget Nammavar (1994), Sethumadhavan returned to his alternative arthouse image for this film of Padmaraju’s story. The folk performer Paddalu (Vijay) finds himself forced into petty crime when he is culturally marginalised by the TV and film industries. He is reformed by Rangi (Rohini), but the two are plunged further into illegalities, for which Rangi’s explanations become increasingly surreal as she presents them to the author, the only remaining sympathetic figure.
