It was Challenging Star Darshan, who had set high hopes for industry and theatre owners with Roberrt movie.
The film starts in the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh, where a humble and polite Raghava (Darshan) works as a main chef at a Brahmin’s food catering center. He has a 5-year-old son Arjun, who always seeks revenge against the people who harass his father. During an event, Raghava who tries to rescue his son from a mishap, also saves an MLA from getting killed.
