Udhayam NH4 is a road movie starring Siddharth, newcomer Ashrita Shetty and Kay Kay Menon. The story of the film is about a Tamilan named Prabhu, who is pursuing engineering in Bangalore, and a Bangalore-based girl Rikshitha (Ashritha Shetty). She is the daughter of Karnataka Chief Minister and she gets kidnapped by Prabhu and his friends. But his beliefs turn false as he fails to catch him in the set time. The unexpected things follow and what happens next should be seen on-screen.
