The film stars Ganesh as Kush, a gynaecologist and Rashmika Mandanna as Kushi, an MBA graduate event organizer, in the lead roles. The soundtrack and score is by Judah Sandhy and the cinematography is by Santhosh Rai Pathaje. The first look of the film was released on 18 May 2017. The film received rave reviews upon release from both critics and audience and ran for over 100-days in multiple theaters in Karnataka.
The project marks the first in the combination of Suni and Ganesh.. The project also marks the debut of Ganesh's daughter Charithriya. The filming began on 14 April 2017 in Bengaluru. Further, between 24 and 27 May, a Holi game sequence was shot inviting youngsters to participate in the shoot. The shooting of songs was held at Ireland.
Dr.Kush (Ganesh) a gynecologist is a man who likes to chill with his friends. He has the fear of marrying someone who would make him compromise his freedom. Listening to the words of one of his friends, he agrees to act innocent and marries a docile, pretty, traditional looking girl Kushi (Rashmika Mandanna). Later he comes to know that Kushi was just like him, a party animal through and through. She gets angry too, she married him for the same reason too: that he looked innocent and she wouldn't have to compromise her freedom. They both apply for a divorce but decide to stay together to not let their family know. They become good friends and later it turns to love. On Khusi's birthday Khush wishes her and gifts her a trip to the sea (maybe goa) there they try diving boating and confess to each other while being drunk. Before confessing their love they were sanctioned a divorce by the Court. But after that Kushi came to know that she was pregnant(maybe result of the sex they had on their first night...or subsequent ones). She decides to keep her baby because she loves Kush but she runs away to not let him know and to protect the baby from her family's disapproval. That's when we see a complete transformation in Khusi's character who moves out alone just to save her child calling it the most precious thing.She comes back when she reaches her 7th month. Kush meanwhile takes up a transfer to Australia to escape his broken heart and to take some time off. Later when he comes to see her, due to a misunderstanding deliberately done by her uncle, he leaves more broken hearted due to the table death of his patient's child due to pregnancy complications and thinking that khusi wont be with him. A few weeks pass and Kushi gives birth and due to complications the doctors are at a loss. Kush was present in the hospital and he meets his in-laws who explain everything. He helps Kushi deliver their child. The epilogue is their child grown up (Charitrya's debut) and shows them all in their happily ever after.
