Akash (Puneet Rajkumar) is depressed after a breakup with his girlfriend (Pooja Gandhi). Yes guys she walks away telling him “you’ll find someone better”… don’t all girls do this? Akash at the insistence of his parents agrees to marry a girl of their choice, Anjali (Parvati Menon), but the very first night of their marriage Anjali asks for a divorce. It turns out Anjali is forcibly married to Akash against her wishes (yup parental pressure again), but is in love with Hemant. Poor Akash, double whammy!!!
Akash agrees to give Anjali a divorce and also help her find Hemant but when they do locate Hemant it turns out the guy is a cad and was only pretending to love Anjali for her wealth. This time around its Anjali who goes into depression (all jilted lovers do) and even tries to commit suicide but Akash saves her and convinces her she must live first and foremost for herself and accomplish the goals she set for herself i.e. complete her studies/M.S. in the USA and settle there.
As Akash later puts it what happened to me before marriage happened to Anjali after marriage and a deep friendship forms between the two of them with Akash becoming Anjali’s benefactor. As time passes Anjali falls in love with Akash, but is unable to say anything for the fear of rejection, and the days for her move to the USA near. Finally (and for a happy ending), Akash realizes his love for Anjali and stops her from flying off to the USA after the usual round of fisticuffs with the baddies (remember Hemant).
Puneet Rajkumar as Akash is excellent and pretty much does everything like acting, dance, action with aplomb, Parvati Menon as Anjali is pretty impressive too, and the beautiful Pooja Gandhi plays a cameo as Akash’s first love (Priya). The music by Mano Murthy is excellent with some really catchy and melodious numbers. I caught up on a Kannada movie after a really long time and must say it was good.
