Located in the backwaters of a dam, Sita Parvata is an island slowly submerging due to the rains The government succeeds in evacuating the residents by giving them compensation for the properties they own The village temple priest Duggajja, his son Ganapa, and his daughter-in-law Nagi find it impossible to leave their homeland and make a living with the meagre compensation given by the government They have but a small hut, which earns them a compensation of ₹25,000 In Ganapa's own words, the compensation can give them food and shelter, but cannot compensate for the love and respect of their people On the island, they are important people, but outside, they would be one among hundreds of families struggling to make a living Centered on this complex theme, the film narrates the struggles of the family and how ultimately in the end they manage to continue life on the island

The 'inner' theme

As in all of Girish Kasaravalli's films, Dweepa deals with an 'inner' theme:that of human minds that isolate themselves due to former beliefs and convictions Each character emerges as a representation of different viewpoints The protagonist Nagi Soundarya is portrayed as an optimistic character whose support is hope and only that The character finally emerges as a symbol of positive thinking and optimism Ganapa Avinash, on the contrary, is resigned to his fate and finally, when they narrowly escape submersion, he fails to see that his wife has achieved the impossible Duggajja MVVasudevaRao withdraws from the catastrophe rather than face it He is devastated to see his convictions and beliefs crumble before his eyes and, in the end, he clings to his beliefs in desperation Krishna Harish Raju portrays a typical dreamer, who can mesmerize the village folk with fairy tales about the world beyond the isolated island In short, he encapsulates the fantasy world we tend to dream about
