Highlighting the importance of college politics, the film deals with various issues faced by students during their college life.

In the current times when many educational institutions are owned by corrupt politicians, education now resembles a business focussed on making profits and something that is steadily losing its sheen and credibility.

When a college owned by local politicians Annasaheb Gunthe Patil (Arun Nalawade) and Kolse Patil (Milind Shinde) refuses to give admission to meritorious students in order to get donations from them, the students decide to take matters in their hands. They approach student leader Raja Sinde (Santosh Juvekar) for help and he obliges by staging a protest with the help of his group 'Nandud'. Several encounters with the politicians follow but Raja succeeds in finding solutions to all of these the way Salman Khan did in a few of his recent films. Helping him in his fight is his friend Rasika ( Sheetal Dabholkar), a TV journalist who has a crush on Raja. Unfortunately for her, Raja falls for the college principal Kocharekar's (Vikram Gokhale) daughter Sakhi ( Namrata Gaikwad). In the midst of all this there is also Raja's rival Bhairav (Rahulraj Dongre) whose only job is to scratch his beard, give deadly stares and strut around in his gym vest. A series of problems and solutions later a shocking event affects Raja's life drastically. Does he come out of this and continue his work?

A simple plot and timely release (in sync with the 2014 Lok Sabha elections) work in the favour of the movie. While Sanjiv Kolte's direction is alright the film lacks the pace required for a subject like this and the focus wavers with sudden shifts in the narrative. Vikram Gokhale does justice to his role and Santosh Juvekar fits the bill in the role of the charismatic leader Raja. Sheetal's presence brings freshness to the screen and she acts well too. Milind and Arun's scenes provide comic relief but better written roles would have done justice to their acting abilities.

The actors carry the film on their able shoulders but the treatment given to it could have been better.
