This is a film with touching elements and innocence of the child Master Anoop is high point of the film. In his debut director Kenja Chetan Kumar touched on the 2 crore orphan kids of this country. Instead of having second child adopting a child would solve the orphan children problem of this country he suggests through this film ‘Devaru Bekagiddaare’.
In a ghastly accident 13 persons drown in a river and just one baby survives. The people of this village are not ready to take care of the child. It is old man Shivaramanna decide to consider the child as one of his family members. The family members oppose and Shivaramanna walks out of the house with the child.
