The Kannada movie is a sequel to Uppi's "Kalpana," which was the remake of "Kanchana." Ram Narayanan had directed the first instalment and the sequel is directed by R Anantha Raju. Arjun Janya has composed the music, MR Seenu has handled the cinematography and Johny Harsha is the editor of the Kannada film.

Upendra works in a TV channel as a cameraman. With his team, he visits a deserted bungalow to shoot a fake horror show in order to generate good TRP ratings. Unfortunately, it is a haunted place and he is possessed by not one but many spirits. The remaining part is about the ghosts seeking revenge against those who are behind their misery.
