Cast And Crew
Kitti (Natraj), an adopted child of Kamli and Chandre Gowda (Amrish Puri), a prominent upper caste couple in the village of Koppal, is as bewildered as his disappointed mother when he sees his father spend his nights with Basakka, a widow in the neighboring Hosur village. But Kitti is excited to watch Chandre Gowda and his fellow upper caste villagers trying to solve an extra marital dispute involving a lower caste Koppal villager who is working as a bonded laborer under Shivaganga, a Hosur upper caste landlord. But as the meeting gets violent, Kitti is terrified. Kitti's worries increases when he hears about a forest myth - if you respond to a speaking bird that calls your name in the jungle, blood might ooze all out of you! In avenge to his humiliation, Shivaganga's men set fire to the houses of Chandre Gowda's servants. Kitti overhears the workers swear revenge. A few repentant Hosur representatives request for a compromise; Chandre Gowda agrees. Kitti is excited that the two villages would together play the traditional water throwing festival, Vokuli. At the Vokuli festival hatred resurfaces and much to Kitti's horror, there is a free for all violence. Later, Kitti sees his mother being raped by a spiteful Shivaganga; and she gets killed. Kitti unsuccessfully tries to join Chandre Gowda and his fellow villagers who gang together to hack the Hosur guys to death. All of them are arrested by the police. When Kitti learns that he will have to return to his biological parents, he hides deep in the forests. As he hears people call his name, he is terrified - is it the killer bird that is calling him?
