Bachchan is a simple revenge drama, but it has interesting twists and turns, which make you watch it sitting on the edge of the seat. The story has also made brief references to the current political developments, the issue of alleged mining in Bellary and its adverse effects on the common man. Bharat alias Bachchan (Sudeep) is a kind-hearted real estate businessman, who is the MD of the Bharat property Solutions. He is deeply in love with a girl (Bhavna), who is doing MS in Bellary and wants to deliver honest service to the needy. But her wish becomes an obstacle for a mining mafia don Minister Reddy (Pradeep Rawat), who's mining activities are causing harm to the common public living in the areas where the activities are taking place. Anjali takes a step to fight against the corrupt minister and finds that most people who she believed were on her side are actually the minister's men. It is a story of how Bharat takes revenge for the wrongdoings of these men in the movie. Nassar, Pradeep Rawat, Ashish Vidyarti and P. Ravi Shankar play the roles of the villains in the film, whereas, Japati Babu plays the role of a CBI Inspector. The action scenes of this film are one of the best ever seen in the Kannada industry.
