Lakshmi Narayana alias Lakshmi is a ruthless CBI officer. The film begins with the hero kidnapping an internationally-renowned dancer Akriti. While cops led by Ravi Kaale capture Lakshmi, they are not aware of his true identity and assume that the kidnapper is being protected by powerful people. Little do they know that he has abducted a terrorist to find clues about his missing wife Priya aka Reshma (Priyamani) and it is believed that she cheated him and left with an underworld don.
As he finds the culprits one after another, he gets an anonymous call that makes him to come to Hong Kong. His mission is clear - find his wife and kill her along with the kingpin. How he finds his wife? What role does his wife play in the film? Answers to these questions will form the crux of the story.
The film is basically a suspense-thriller which unfolds with a lot of actions. The story is told with a few flashbacks that work out well for Lakshmi. While the first half could have been better, the second half is interesting
