The film is based on a real-life crime that occurred in Bangalore
Slum is not about life in a slum, but about two rowdies who are childhood friends. They are Lucky (Mayur Patel) and Surya (P Murthy) – both orphans. We have another character Swamy (Achyuth Kumar), a government employee, who strikes a deal and offers supari to the duo to kill a person. Later the two kill a number of people, including Parandhama, an underworld don. The story takes a curious turn when Lucky is killed by a gang with Swamy’s help. Surya is left alone.
