The plot revolves around a gem Marakathamani – touted as the lucky charm of King Vikramaditya which is buried with him.
In 1990, an archaeologist retrieves the gem belonging to 19th century and keeps it to himself only to be hit by an unidentified vehicle. It is later revealed that 132 people who had possession of the gem were hit by the same vehicle. On the other hand, Raghunandan (Aadhi) flees to city from Anantapuram to escape money lenders. He joins his friend Bujji who works under a small smuggling don to make some quick bucks. Other than accompanying Bujji, Raghunandan has feelings for Alekhya (Nikki Galrani) who gets married to someone else.
Fed up with the small money that they are making and in a bid to clear his Rs 40 lakh debt, Raghu and his friend embark on a journey to retrieve Marakathamani.

What will Aadi now? How will he create evil spirits? and moreover, how will he steal Marakatamani? That forms the rest of the story.
The movie entertainer and may come as a surprise for many. The performance of all the characters was well. The music and background score are highlights of the Marakathamani.
Performance of all characters
The story of the film is quite fictional and has many over the top moments. The evil spirits coming into existence and helping the hero look good in places but has been over done a bit in the first half.
Nikki Garlani’s romantic thread with Aadi is side tracked and could have been elevated a bit. The first half of the film is very slow as the proceedings take forever to get to the actual twist of the film.
