Ramachari (Yash), a hot-headed college-goer, is a fan of Vishnuvardhan from his childhood often watching his films. Inspired by the character Ramachari portrayed by Vishnuvardhan in Naagarahaavu, he gets it tattooed on his chest. Due to his waywardness, his relationship with his father (Achyuth Kumar) is damaged to an extent where the father and son cannot stand each other. His father favours his elder son Hari (Vishal Hegde), who is docile and studious; the benchmark of an ideal son.
Ramachari hardly attends college and mostly hangs out with his friends Dattu (Ashok Sharma) and Chikkappa (Girish Shivanna), thus being resented by Dattu’s mother (Malavika Avinash). At college one day, he encounters Divya (Radhika Pandit), a damsel in distress, being ragged by seniors. Divya, however is Dattus’s sister, unbeknown to Ramachari. Ramachari instantly falls in love with her who too reciprocates. He prefers calling her Margaret (based on actress Shubha’s character in Naagarahaavu, Vishnuvardhan’s love interest). The new-found love is sweet for Divya and Ramachari and they make a hot-headed decision to get married. But, they face problems with their relationship, which leads to a painful breakup.
