The film starts with the villain, 'Rice Plate' Reddy, killing the hero, 'Quick Gun' Murugan The hero then goes to Heaven/Paradise and we are then transported back in time when he starts relating his flashback to Chitragupta.
The villian ‘Rice Plate’ Reddy of the McDosa Chain lays down a new rule stating that all the vegetarian hotels to be converted into non-vegetarian hotels, thus posing a threat to the cows. The villain, along with Django and Gun Powder, wants to create an ultimate non-vegetarian dosa. Meanwhile, Murugan, who is known as Quick gun Murugan because of his trademark pistols, takes a room in an inn. Coming to know of the situation, the heroic cowboy makes a fight with the villain, but is killed in the process.
Quick Gun Murugan is then reincarnated in the 21st century to finally put an end to the ‘Rice Plate’ Reddy and his gang, thus saving the cows and the vegetarian business.
The film is hilarious till the end and provides enough entertainment. Murugun with his cap and pistols appears like a true cowboy. His stylish clothes and some of his English dialogues like “Mind it”, “The whole creation is my native place” are billiant. Rambha As Mango Dolly, Murugan’s secret lover, plays her role well. Anu Menon as Murugan’s ‘Locket’ lover is another innovative idea in this picture.The special effects in the film are superb and the music scored by Sagar Desai is average.
