Ever since challenging star's movies started misfiring, almost all his ventures have been a real challenge to survive for the larger audience minus his 'die-hard' fans. This time, it comes with the label 'comedy' and by the end of it, it is nothing short of a laughing stock. Henceforth, it could be more appropriate for the makers of challenging films to carry a 'disclaimer' stating in bold words that it is strictly for challenging fans, as others may lack sense to understand either the comedy or the drama it intends to showcase. Between, action and display of heroism, is always the default factor.

While some might defend it expressing that it is a simple genre of comedy for family entertainment, it completely lacks the basics for even a fun watch. It is yet another attempt of 'aggrandizement' to encash the stardom in the garb of senseless commercial humour. Jaggu Dada, a big time underworld don of Bengaluru is happy with few of sidekicks, and that his mother played by Urvashi, aspiring him to become an International don and live happily ever after with a popular bar dancer!  

The challenge is shortly revealed with Jaggu Dada's grandfather played by Ravi Shankar passing away. What follows after his restless soul returns to haunt his grandson is a 'traditional' shock of a life time. The grandpa's soul wishes Jaggu to shed his rowdy image and marry a traditional girl. The makers can at least apply for 'Guinness' record for using the Kannada word 'sampradayasta' meaning traditional for most number of time in a full length feature film. 

Unable to bare the torture, which is exactly the plight of 'larger audience,' Jaggu lands himself in Mumbai along with his sidekicks in search for a traditional bride. He is now Jaidev, a businessman, and in meantime during the search for the perfect 'traditional' girl, Jaggu alias Jaidev falls for the one who is actually helping him find the 'traditional' bride. Watch the rest of it only if you are a 'traditional' die-hard fan of challenging star Darshan. Wonder, even the present age smart kids could hardly laugh at these kinds of untraditional humour. May the soul of the grandpa finally rest in peace after more than two-and-a-half hours of 'restless' comedy.
