Actor Tiger Prabhakar also featured in an extended cameo role.
The Film obtained 'A' certificate without cuts from the CBFC.The film, upon release, met with hugely positive reviews and catapulted actor Ambareesh's career to greater heights and coined him the title "Rebel Star" for his angry young man role.
Typical early 80s Kannada crime story with rebel star Ambarish. The unemployed Amarnath (Ambarish), helped by a politician, trains to be a cop and serves the state honestly until he discovers a criminal network that includes his politician-benefactor as well as his own father-in-law. Blackmailed into collaborating with them, Amarnath soon becomes integrated into the network. The narrative, however, ascribes to him a secret purpose in order to justify the collaboration. The film ends with Amarnath, now a politician heading a new government, decimating his entire cabinet of criminals with a machine gun.
