Crazy Loka movie story is about the Mysore University felicitates Basavaraj Kattimane (Ravichandran) with honorary doctorate for his social work and his contribution for the welfare of the society.
Being an illiterate, he struggles to speak at the function and takes the help of his secretary Harihara (Ninasam Ashwath) to mouth some words. Shetty's (Srinivas Prabhu) blood boils seeing an illiterate getting the doctorate and insults Basavaraj at the function claiming that his money power has won him the honour and not his social concerns.
His words hurt Basavaraj and makes him to join a college to get at least a Pre University Certificate. But his son played by newcomer Surya, as expected, is not happy and he opposes the very idea of pursuing education.
However, his son agrees half-heartedly after Basavaraj agrees for all his conditions and promising that he abide by his words. Then, we are introduced to principal of the college (Avinash), psychology lectures (Daisy Bopanna) and Harshika Poonachha, who is in love with his son.
