Naga Shaurya has come up with his yet another home production after the successful movie 'Chalo'. He for the very first time has played a gay in the movie which is a novel element as we have never seen a protagonist playing such characters earlier. Let us check if the movie has delivered what it touted to.

Story:

Radha Krishna (Naga Shaurya) is brought up by his parents as a girl since childhood, as his father likes to have a girl child. He later grows up to become a self defense coach for girls as he believes that women need to be more independent and secured. He keeps telling his father that he never gets any feelings when he sees a girl. 

Later he happens to meet a simple girl Manasa (Kashmira) and falls in love with her. But his father Sivaji Raja misunderstands that he loves another girl Satya(Yamini) who is a friend of Radha Krishna and fixes his marriage with her. Due to certain situations he is made to stay in the house of Satya.  To escape from that situation Radha Krishan makes the family of Satya believe that he is a gay. Ajay, Satya's brother who happens to stay in the same house also discloses that he is a gay too and falls in love with Radha Krishna. 

How Radha Krishna manages to escape from Satya's family and will be able to get married to his love Manasa is to be watched on screen.
