Where did you watch this movie?

This suspense thriller follows the fluctuating fortunes in the life of Ramakrishna, a man who is in search of his abducted son. His solitary and secretive ways reveal a dark past filled with terror and loss. Flashbacks reveal that Ramakrishna (Chiranjeevi) was a mechanic whose life changed completely when he met Priya (Anjala Zaveri) at a train station. She saw him and felt some inexplicable connection to the extent that she chose to run away with him to flee her father's (Prakash Raj) goons. They ended up living in the forest with their son, but her father, who is an underworld don, kidnapped her so that he can marry her off to another don's son. Ramakrishna confronted her father and in the ensuing confusion Priya took the bullet meant for her husband and died. Their son lost his voice in the shock of the tragedy and Ramakrishna was jailed. Prakash Raj took the boy away to Kolkata, where the story originally started. Now, Ramakrishna has returned to find and be reunited with his son. Who will help him in the new city? Will he succeed in his daunting mission against all odds?
