Varun is practical, but Padmini is emotional. When Varun was returning from a mission, receives a voicemail from Padmini saying that it would be better for both of them to call off the wedding. Varun, instead of being in love with Padmini, maintains an apathetic front that is repulsive to Padmini, and ongoing to enquire with her family regarding the rejection, then he is derided by Padmini for being emotionally unavailable.

As Varun leaves the house of Padmini, the family learns that niece of Padmini is gone missing. But Varun promises them that he will rescue and find Chinnu. The family initially lodge a police complaint. An incognito officer named Bhagat is appointed for the protection of the family, a measure which Varun sees as minimal. After realizing the fact Chinnu is one among the following who has gone missing similarly. Now, Varun takes the command and plans to kidnap the daughter of Assistant

Commissioner of Police convinced that it will trigger a competent investigation and keeps a track of the investigation with the help of Bhagat. However, the family and Varun return the ACP’s daughter and nab three of the arrested kidnappers, among who Varun believes are the kidnapper of Chinnu.
