Union minister Ghanshyam Yadav (P. Ravi Shankar) is intercepted by some goons. Gagan Dixit (Puneeth Rajkumar) saves Yadav from the brawl that ensues. Gagan later realizes that the fight was a staged act by Yadav in order to gain sympathy votes. Gagan reports to newspaper editor Avinash (Avinash) and publishes this story anonymously. Gagan meets up with his old friend Keshav (Chikkanna), and they decide to rent a haunted house owned by Namadev (Sadhu Kokila). Despite Keshav's objections, Gagan decides to go through with renting the house. Gagan convinces Keshav by saying that since he has a sacred thread on his right wrist, they will be fine. Gagan also unsuccessfully tries to call a phone number of someone he is trying to find. They go to a mobile network's office to obtain the location of the number that Gagan is trying to call. They meet with Sakshi (Rachita Ram), the manager, who refuses.

After story about the fake fight is published, Yadav becomes infuriated, and many ads are removed from the newspaper. To rectify this, Avinash sends Gagan to do a special write-up on Yadav by interviewing him in his private jet. After a fairly tense interview in the air, the plane lands in Bellary, and Yadav is ambushed as Gagan leaves. Gagan initially believes it to be another fake fight before realizing that blood is being shed, unlike in the last fight. Gagan then saves Yadav from the ambush, putting himself in the good graces of Yadav. Yadav then gives Gagan the name of "Appaji" and tells him that that he is indebted to Gagan.

Gagan revisits Sakshi's office to obtain details of number but hears Sakshi's father has experienced heart attack. Gagan takes Yadav's help to rescue to father just in time. Due to this, Sakshi changes her opinion about Gagan and agrees to give details about the phone number.

After various superstitious activities in the house, Keshav quarrels with Namadev. Gagan tries to break up the fight and consequently loses his sacred wrist thread. He starts experiencing superstitious activities in the house later that night. The next day, Gagan finds some spectacles in a drawer, and decides to wear them. After wearing them, his behavior begins to change.

Gagan goes to interview Saroja Devi at a country club; while interviewing her, he notices his vision blurring. He wears the spectacles to regain focus, and he completely shifts his focus on the man in the pool. Gagan relentlessly beats up the man and fights off any security who try to hold him back, occasionally asking the man "Why did you kill me?" before the man escapes, and Gagan loses consciousness. Gagan wakes up with no recollection of the fight. Gagan and Keshav go to Yadav's birthday bash where they get drunk. Yadav embraces him, and Gagan wears the spectacles to regain focus. He proceeds to beat up Yadav mercilessly in a similar fashion to his previous fight. Yadav survives, and Gagan wakes up in prison, with no idea of what happened in the party. Gagan gets bail on the case of mental illness, and the media quickly picks up Gagan's story, focusing that he lives in a supposedly haunted house. An observer (Prakash Belawadi) explains the suicide of his niece Shruthi, which occurred in that house. Sakshi then reveals that the location of Shruthi's number is the same house.

Gagan then details the story of how he met and fell in love with Shruthi (Anupama Parameswaran) but he hadn't received a call from her since their meeting, hence Gagan's motivation to find where she is. Gagan is then taken to Guruji's (Achyuth Kumar) ashram instead of a mental hospital, where a puja is being performed to get rid of the spirit that has invaded Gagan. Gagan wears the spectacles as the pooja is being performed, which is revealed to be the same spectacles that Shruthi wore. He violently kills Yadav's lawyer, before moving to Yadav. Yadav holds Shruthi's uncle as hostage before someone delivers a final blow.

The film flash-forwards to the court orderinh Gagan to be sent to a mental hospital due to multiple personality disorder. The film then flashes back to the fight, where Gagan stabs Shruthi's uncle before violently killing Yadav. Gagan then reveals to Guruji that he was never possessed by anyone. Gagan recalls his video chat with Shruthi after she had gone home and witnesses Yadav, the lawyer, and her uncle murdering her. Gagan then plotted revenge and gave himself a possessed facade by using the spectacles. Gagan explains that he will be both spiritually and scientifically innocent by the court of law, and Guruji keeps his secret.
