Inspired by the English film The Fugitive, Nagarjuna has played the role of a doctor who sets a hospital in his hometown for the treatment of the people who can't afford to meet the expenses. Ramya Krishnan, Manisha Koirala played female leads who have done their parts well and Nag just lived in the character.
After enthralling the audience with his handsome appearance and action thrillers, the actor has tested his fate by portraying the saint roles and tasted good success in that genre. The actor best fits the bill for the role of Indian saint Annamayya.
The action drama directed by Puri Jagannadh is one of the extraordinary films in his career wherein the actor has portrayed a powerful police role. Nag as Shivamani looks dapper and energetic in the role who is seen curbing the criminals in the film. The dialogue from the film is, “Naa Peru Shivamani, Naaku Koncham Mental.” has been the whistle worthy one till date.

The film revolves around a guy named Sreenu (Karthi) who gets hired for a caretaker job for a businessman Vikram Aditya (Nagarjuna). How the relationship grows between these two people and what changes they go through in their respective lives forms the crux of the story.
