Gopi is the head of a joint family consisting of his three sons, their wives, and children. When his family decides to punish him by not talking to him for consuming alcohol, he arranges advertises for a caretaker. The family apologizes later and is forgiven.

Gopi's granddaughter Sridevi has her engagement. Krishna, who arrives with Sridevi's fiancée's family, wins everyone's hearts with his friendliness. When it is revealed that he has come in response to Gopi's advertisement for a caretaker, Gopi immediately hires him.

Lakshmi is Gopi's other granddaughter, who became mentally insane after witnessing the fire accident of her parents three years back. She lives in the outhouse. Krishna befriends Lakshmi, and she starts to recover. After Sridevi's wedding, the family decides to get Lakshmi married to Chetan, her cross-cousin, who just wants her wealth and lusts after her. Krishna suggests they get her married after she recovers fully, but is rebuked.

The next day, it is discovered that Krishna has fled with Lakshmi. With the help of Chukki, they reach a music college, where with the help of, Krishna helps Lakshmi, who loves music, regain her stability. Krishna and Lakshmi return to the joint family. After beating him up initially, when they find out that Lakshmi has fully recovered, the family apologizes. Lakshmi is told about her upcoming wedding. While Lakshmi thinks Krishna is the groom, the family has chosen Chetan. Krishna leaves the house. Lakshmi is shocked and returns to the outhouse.

One of Gopi's friends reveals why Krishna had come to their house. Krishna is Shivaram Krishna, son of rich businessman Ram Kumar. The men who had come to kill Krishna in the train three years ago had instead killed Lakshmi's parents, who had exchanged their seats with Krishna. On finding out that this incident made Lakshmi go insane, a guilty Krishna had come to their house to treat her to recover, not to kidnap her.

Gopi calls Ram Kumar and is told that Krishna has left for Europe. Krishna arrives at Gopi's house in a different getup and plays the tune of Lakshmi's song on the piano. Lakshmi runs to Krishna. He refuses to take her with him though, since she has a loving family and cannot leave them. Gopi intervenes. He sends Lakshmi with Krishna, telling him that she is not leaving her family, but Krishna is joining their family.



The film was scheduled to be released on 1 November 2019, coinciding with Karnataka Rajyotsava day. [5] It was later postponed to 15 November due to technical reasons. [6]
