Plot Of Sarkaru Vaari Paata
Mahesh Mahi is a finance agent, who has set up his own loan agency named Mahi Finance Corporation, in Miami, USA. He turns his debtors’ life into hell when they fail to repay their debts. Mahi meets Kalavathi, who requests Mahi into loaning her US$10K and later US$25K for her graduate studies. Mahi lends the loan and soon falls in love with Kalavathi. However, Mahi finds out that Kalavathi is a gambling addict and had tricked Mahi into asking the loan. When confronted to repay the loan, she threatens Mahi by using the influence of her father, Rajendranath, a powerful MP and industrialist based in Vizag who runs an industrial company named Rajendranath Associates. Mahi travels to Vizag to retrieve the money, which earns Rajendranath’s wrath. Mahi grabs the attention of the media about the loan repayment and reveals that Rajendranath owes him ₹10,000 crore (US$1.3 billion), much to everyone’s astonishment. Rajendranath confronts Mahi where he reveals his agenda: After arriving in Vizag, Mahi learns from a senior bank official about Rajendranath swindle the National Bank for ₹10,000 crore (US$1.3 billion), before being arrested by the police.
Mahi decided to recover the amount and also expose the fault lines that run deep within the Indian banking system. Mahi manages to serve a bank notice to Rajendranath, who is ordered to repay the debt. Kalavathi finds out about Mahi’s misdeeds, and with her uncle (Rajendranath’s brother-in-law) plans to make Mahi withdraw the case, but to no avail. Rajendranath, with his political connections manages to issue a stay order for the bank notice, from the Supreme Court. Kalavathi realize her father’s true colours, and extends her support to Mahi, renewing their relationship. Mahi, along with the people of the area, decide to protest using the slogan Boycott Banks, against Rajendranath and the other banks involved in financial fraud with millionaries. Rajendranath is warned by the Finance Minister that he will be dismissed from the Ministerial post and Rajya Sabha. Rajendranath kidnaps Mahi, with the help of the Vizag ACP and orders the ACP to finish him off.
The next day, the bank officials find the ₹1 (1.3¢ US) seal in every bank lock. The henchmen inform this to Rajendranath, who tells his henchmen to attack the bank. It is revealed that the police officers had helped Mahi escape from the encounter, after they learnt that he was doing the right thing. Mahi reaches the bank and defeats Rajendranath’s henchmen. Rajendranath arrives at the bank, where the mob attacks Rajendranath, but Mahi saves him and makes Rajendranath realize the seriousness of his misdeeds. He apologizes to everyone and repays the ₹10,000 crore (US$1.3 billion) loan. The National Bank regains its reputation and the bank official is proven to be innocent and is released. She thanks Mahi and asks him about his origins. Mahi reveals that his parents took a loan of ₹15,000 (US$200) from the same bank and were unable to repay it on time, due to which they committed suicide. Mahi had forgiven the bank as they did their duty for collecting the loan and that the people must be blamed for not paying the amount in time. Mahi tells that the government has changed and that Sarkaru Vaari Paata must be made to the public sector and everyone.
