Goutham enjoys life to the fullest and on one occasion at a pub, a waiter (Thanikella Bharani) asks him who he is. Goutham doesn’t have an answer for this and he soon sets out on a mission to discover himself. In this process, he happens to meet Nanda (Gopichand) a lower middle-class guy who has tried to commit suicide. They get together soon and plan to exchange places and discover themselves. Will Goutham get to know his inner self? Will Nanda know what it is like to be rich? To know all these and many more twists and turns, watch Goutham Nanda at a theatre near you.Gopichand is perfect in the character of Goutham and his filthy rich life is effectively portrayed on screen. At the same time, the Nanda's poverty is also effectively depicted in the slums of Borabanda. Gopichand has excelled in both the roles. Catherine Teresa as Mugda and Goutham’s love interest is super sexy in the bikini scene and is beautiful throughout the movie. Hansika Motwani as Spoorthi is beautiful and has done justice to her role. Chandramohan and Sita as Nanda parents are good. Sachin as Goutham’s father fit for the role.

Music and background score by S.S.Thaman is one of the major highlights of the movie. Cinematography by Soundar Rajan is excellent.
