The storyline goes like this.Tejabhai (Prithviraj) grows up in Malaysia and becomes an underworld don when he grows up. The all powerful gangster falls for the beautiful Vedika (Akhila), daughter of the wealthy businessman Damodarji (Thalaivasal Vijay). The story takes a different turn from then on.

Tejabhai cannot reveal his true identity to the beauteous Vedika and appears before her and her family in a totally different guise. He is advised by Rajaguru Viswavachassu (Suraj Venjarammoodu) in all these attempts.

Prithviraj, who has been having mixed fortunes at the box-office of late, is trying to make an impact with a change of image in this comedy.

"This one is going to be a complete entertainer. We had a blast shooting for the film," says the hero, who is currently playing the lead in Ranjith's Indian Rupee.
