Here, lorry driver Pushpa Raj—portrayed by Allu Arjun—is deeply involved in the smuggling of red sandalwood trees. The movie chronicles the fight for good against evil as the police crack down on the smuggling empire that is rampant in these parts. The fast-paced, powerful, and thought-provoking narrative pulls the viewers into a vortex where there is no right or wrong, and there are no bad men—only heroes in different hues of gray.
