With the rise of gang wars, the government hires a cop, Bhargava Bakshi, to handle the situation. The cop then narrates a story about a gang he faced in the past. A freedom fighter Aamreshwara was killed by the government, and his wife and children, Arkshwara and Sankeshwara, shifted to Amarapura. It is a city frequently involved in gang wars and mafia deals. While Arkshwara joins the Air Force, Sankeshwara lives with his mother. Due to the chaos created by Sartaj, the son of the Chief Minister’s ally, Khalid, Sankeshwara kills him and later gets killed by Khalid. What will happen next? Will Arkshwara avenge his brother’s death? Who is Khalid, and his power in Amrapura?


Star Performance

Sudeep’s role was good but was short and pretty much a cameo role. Upendra, as usual, shined in his character. Shriya also played an essential part in the film. Overall this film had an excellent cast.


The movie had good production and top vfx. The story was fine, but after seeing many films of a similar type, this story seemed routine and predictable. The anti-hero element shined throughout the film.

What’s There?

  • Many good one-liners and punch dialogues.
  • Amazing villain characters and villain arc.
  • Visuals and action scenes were a huge plus point.

What’s Not There?

  • Same story and many similarities to KGF.
  • Lack of emotional elements.


The movie is decent but more of an OTT watchable movie than in theatres. If you crave some pure action film, then you can give this a try.
