He tries to get rescue the girl, but Patil fights violently, and produces a gun, and tries to shoot Ram. Ram has to shoot Patil in self-defence. He then gets the girl to cover her head and face, and to flee the scene. He tells his superior officer (Avinash) why he shot Patil, but he is court-martialled and discharged from the army. Patil recovers in hospital, and his aides tell him that they stopped the news of the court-martial leaking out to the media, so that no-one would know about Patil molesting the girl. Ram goes back home to Bangalore, to a royal welcome from his family, who congratulate him for his daring rescue of Patil.
Meanwhile, the girl he rescued, Asha (Nikitha), who is a student, also lives in Bangalore. She has sent 150 letters to the Army, thanking him, to be delivered to Ram, but has had no response. Then she sees Ram on his motorbike, and eventually jumps on the pillion seat when he is stopped at traffic-lights. He is angry, and does not want her attention, but she tells him that he has saved her honour, and that it is the duty of a girl to marry the one who saves her honour, he is the one she wants to marry. When he gets home, there is a parcel from the army ? it is all the letters and cards from Asha. He tells the family that he is no longer in the army, and why. He then goes to see Asha and tells her that he loves her, and that he will marry her.
The rest of the film is about his romance with Asha; his struggle to stay alive despite all the attempts of Patil to have him killed; and his continuing struggle against evil.
