Lakshmi and Narayana are an elderly couple. Lakshmi seeks the help of a quirky psychiatrist to help cure her husband Narayana of his psychological problem after trying with many other people. Narayana gets possessed by spirits ranging from mythological to film characters. Does this last resort attempt help cure Narayana?

There was curiosity around this film as it is the directorial debut of veteran actress Vinaya Prasad. The film is a comical tale revolving around the lives of a couple, while simultaneously addressing an important issue — the empty-nest syndrome and its ill-effects.

The film begins with Lakshmi, a concerned wife, seeking help from a quirky psychiatrist to help cure her husband, Narayana, of his weird psychological problem. Narayana gets possessed by various characters ranging from Ravana to Karna, Vishwamitra and even Gabbar Singh. The doctor tries many techniques to help Narayana, and what becomes of those attempts forms this tale.

The film, on paper, is a lovely idea as it addresses issues that most couples in their 50s face, once they are left with empty homes after their children leave. But it fails in terms of its execution. The film ends up being a sort of a shoddy telefilm of the 90s rather than a slick slice-of-life attempt. The film seems to nurse a retro hangover with excessive theatrics, while it seems a bit jagged too in its editing.

Vinaya Prasad, though, steals the show in her act as Lakshmi, looking still as ravishing. The performances are earnest, but the jokes and the narrative seem a little too forced. Watch this if you're a fan of Vinaya Prasad.

Although gist of the movie is catchy for elderly citizens, all actors over performed except vinaya prasad.The north karnataka-hindi mixed language by Doctor is bearableOne can sprend most of the movie time in shopping and can watch full theme in the last 25minutes,as its only released in malls.when an actor has a good story to tell, he/she may land it through some better directors rather to have directors cap.
