A story of a modern day Robin Hood who takes from the corrupted rich to provide education for the poor. Krishnamoorthy alias Kicha (Arjun) is a respected person in his local community and runs a small business. But Kicha, at the same time, is also a part time robber. He is accompanied by his friend Mani (Goundamani). He has stolen millions of rupees from many victims. The home minister and the police are adamant to catch this notorious robber yet are unsuccessful. Susheela (Madhoo), a simple brahmin girl working under Kicha falls for him. Charan Raj is an efficient Police officer who takes charge to nab Kichaa, at one instance Charan Raj challenges to catch him and makes a plan. But Kichha still escapes and this results in the tonsuring of Charan Raj's head. Later Charan Raj gets married to the cousin of Susheela, which leads him closer in identifying Kichaa. But Kicha somehow finds a way and escapes. Kicha makes one final robbery as planned and once he makes it Charan Raj arrests him. At the courtroom he reveals the reasons of his Robinhood Avatar with a very strong flashback about a tragedy in his family resulting in the death of his mother (Manorama) and his best friend Ramesh (Vineeth).
