Embedded with fierce action and intense emotion, this socially relevant tale delves into the sensitive subject of neglect and medical malpractice at hospitals. It attempts to expose the rampant apathy, indifference and lack of accountability amongst doctors in India, through the struggles in the life of Tirupathi, a sincere and straightforward young man. Tirupathi is a happy-go-lucky young man who leads a jolly life with his parents and younger sister. He happens to meet Priya and both fall in love with each other. Just as everything seems to be going well, Thirupathi’s pregnant sister reaches the time of delivery, and he takes her to a hospital. The doctor there expects a bribe but when it is not forthcoming, he neglects his duty because of which Thirupathi’s sister dies. Incensed by the apathy, indifference and criminal negligence of the doctor and deeply grieved by his sister's untimely demise, Thirupathi seeks justice from the hospital, only to find out that this is not the first instance of medical negligence and malpractice leading to wrongful death in the hospital and the doctor is none other than Soori’s brother. Will Tirupathi succeed in exposing the wrongdoers and bring them to justice? Can he avenge his sister's death against powerful enemies?
