The story is about Krishna (Ganesh) who is an anchor for a popular television show. Krishna is a paying guest at the house of Krishnakumar whose daughter Pooja (Pooja Gandhi) is secretly in love with him—though she pretends to dislike him.

When Pooja confesses her love to Krishna, Krishna informs her of his previous life—when he was a nobody and was deeply in love with Anjali (Sharmila Mandre) whose entire family was poverty stricken and Krishna helped them out wherever and whenever he could. Anjali loves Krishna as well and everyone including Krishna assumes that Krishna will end up with Anjali. However, when one of Anjali's wealthy relatives arrived and paid attentions to her finally asking her to marry him so that he can help her study medicine which is her dream - Anjali agreed to her family's wish and agreed to get married to this rich relative and break off with Krishna. A heartbroken Krishna came to Bangalore unable to bear the sorrow.

Pooja however is confident that she will win Krishna's love. However, Anjali comes back into Krishna's life - when her fiance has ditched her. She is now penniless and Krishna helps her out by getting her a medical seat and helping her out. Anjali falls in love with Krishna and in the end when she is about to commence her career as a doctor- informs him of her love- however Krishna informs her that he helped her out not out of love but out of pity. He gives her a sermon on love and tells her that his love for her is a thing of the past. Anjali leaves sadder but wiser.

Krishna (Ganesh) gets together with Pooja (Pooja Gandhi) and the pair walk away happily leaving the audience to assume they live happily ever after.

Critical response[edit]

Indiaglitz states that "This is a well made role for Ganesh. He has the space for quick dialogue delivery and right element of emotions, action and romance. Pooja Gandhi is impressive as tomboy character. For Sharmila this role does not suit. The traditional costume is poles apart from her debut film 'Sajani'. Sharmila has improved in showing emotions. Sharan takes the major honors after Ganesh in this film. Avinash, Vinayaprakash, Sudha Belawadi are apt for their charecters [sic]".[10]

Box-office performance[edit]
