Purushottam (Arjun) is a handsome, both mentally and physically, cameraman at Qtv. Chowdary (Raghuvaran) is the CM of the state. He believes that his CM chair has four legs (namely money lenders, caste, gross root workers of the party and students). In order to pacify all these groups, he has to make lots of compromises in his administration. There by his indecisiveness leads to riots and discontent among the people.
Purushottam spots the village belle Chandramukhi (Manisha Koirala) and duly falls in love with her. But father of the Chandramukhi wants his daughter to marry a govt. employee than a TV cameraman.
As he is a cameraman, Purushottam cans all these riots and rescues the people. As Purushottam report on the riots become popular, he is given promotion as a senior reporter. And his first assignment turns out to be an interview with the CM of the state, Chowdary.
In that spirited interview Purushottam questions the CM's non-transparent functionality. When CM refutes back that Purushottam is misusing media to malign him, Purushottam shows all the evidence. A piqued CM he is, Chowdary challenges Purushottam to act as CM for a day. Only then one can understand the immense pressure of being CM. After much deliberation Purushottam accepts the offer. Chowdary passes an ordinance to make Purushottam CM for a day by giving his resignation letter and the letter of support by his MLA's.
