Popular ad filmmaker Jayendra is making his debut as a with 180. It is a bilingual film, which is simultaneously made in Tamil and Telugu. Siddharth, who worked with Jayendra in his early days of his career, have done the film as a goodwill gesture. Nithya Menon and Priya Anand have played the female leads. It is a love story with a tragic backdrop.

Ajay (Siddharth) is a doctor by profession. He is working in San Francisco. Once a girl from India named Renuka (Priya Anand) is admitted to his hospital and both of them fall in love with each other. Their love gets green signal from both the families and they marries soon. While they are leading a happy life, Ajay goes for a medical checkup for some insurance purpose and learns that she is suffering from cancer, which is in advanced stage. Neither it can be cured with chemotherapy nor there are chances of survival. Even if he gets operated, he could only leave for 180 days at max. for ithis days numbered to 180. So Ajay goes into deep depression. Renuka could not digest the fact and struggles a lot to console Ajay. To give her relief from the mental struggle, Ajay writes all his property in a will to Renuka, leaves the house, and reaches India. He learns from a small boy that when you are aware that death is inevitable, live the life and enjoy the moment. He moves freely with all the street kids by helping them. His attitude to help the kids attracts Vidya (Nithya Menon), who is a journalist. She admires him and try to find out who was he but she could not. Soon, she falls in love. What happens next should be seen on-screen.

Siddharth has done a perfect job in this film. He has maintained good comedy timing and in sorrowful scenes too he showed good body language and histrionics. He maintained the same ease in love scenes hand in pathos. Priya Anand should be commended for giving a good performance. She has almost equaled Siddharth in acting. She is also good in romantic and love scenes. Nitya Menon is also okay but she has a little scope to perform. Other artistes including Mouli, Tanikella Bharani and Sri Charan have given their best in their respective roles. Others are okay.
