In 1609 AD, Mitravinda, a princess, and Kala Bhairava, the warrior that she loved, die. 400 years later, the warrior is reincarnated as Harsha, a motorcycle stuntman. He brushes hands with a girl and sparks fly as he begins to recall his past life. Knowing that he is destined to love this young woman, he sets about trying to identify her. Indu does not remember her past life and keeps Harsha at a distance; playing tricks on him until she gets to know him better. However, just as the two begin to fall in love, a sinister force from their shared past returns!
Ramanaa begins with the abduction of fifteen District collectors. After three days in captivity, fourteen officers are released, but one is murdered. The police find a tape recording and a file on the dead officer’s body that provide significant evidence concerning the kidnapping and subsequent murder. The file suggests that the crimes were committed by members of the self-proclaimed “Anti-Corruption Force” (A.C.F.), a citizen militia seeking to eliminate corruption through vigilante acts. The militia, acting as a kangaroo court, “sentenced” corrupt officials in the area to death, beginning with the captured revenue officers who were apparently engaging in criminal activity.
