Plot[edit]

Ramakrishna aka Rakhi (Jr. NTR) aspires to become a railway stationmaster like his father (Chandra Mohan). His love interest and close friend Tripura (Ileana D'Cruz) is a reporter in a TV channel who exposes atrocities against women in society. For Rakhi, his sister Gayathri (Manjusha) is everything. She is married off to a software professional (Ravi Varma) who plans to go to the USA. The greedy in-laws burn her alive for more dowry. Devastated by this, Rakhi takes the law into his own hands and starts to kill men for harassing women by burning them alive. A police officer Meenakshi Iyer (Suhasini) convinces him to surrender to the law. Before surrendering, he has killed over 49 misogynists. Finally, in jail, he kills his sister's friend's murderer like a tiger, and in the climax, the main villain ministers. His dialogues in the court are remarkable. The court drama forms the rest of the story.
