It stars Kashinath and Bhavya in the lead roles. Dealing with the prevalent social issue of dowry system, the plot revolves around a man's struggle in getting his sister's marriage arranged to fulfill his mother's and sisters-in-law's desire for a dowry, despite being in love himself and wanting to marry first.[1] It features Mukhyamantri Chandru, N.
