Going on to thank the cast and crew along with the distributors, partners and the audience for churning a blockbuster out of the film, the post also mentioned how Sai Tej’s absence in the release of the film would be now made up with the well-deserved success party.

The plot of the political thriller follows Panja Abhiram who is appointed as the district collector. He dreams of an egalitarian society and adherence to the constitution and its precepts. While also having faith in the judiciary, Abhiram encounters a maneuvering politician Visakha Vani who delights in powers to bend things as she wants them to be.
The story goes on from the point as to how Abhiram gathers public support and motivates them to rally together for their right to justice.
