Akash plays Prakash Raj's son and Radhika Apte his wife.
The actor is also the producer and director of the movie. The story goes like this, "Prakash Raj is a middle class father who works overtime to save money, so that his son can study for an MBA. But Prakash Raj's son is not interested in academics. His real passion is cricket and he has no aspirations on the academic front. What follows is an emotional struggle between father and son and arguments on their dreams and aspirations.
Will the father recognize the son's potential and encourage him? Or will the son recognize the father's dream and sacrifice his passion for it?" The film is being made on Duet Movies banner and KV Guhan is the cinematographer.
