Though considered a terrorist by the local police, Beera is respected by the villagers. He kidnaps Ragini hoping to avenge the death of his sister Jamuni Priyamani. Ragini refuses to die at the hands of a bandit and jumps off the cliff, but is unable to kill herself. This prompts Beera to postpone her killing, as it is useless to kill someone who has no fear of death. ........
