Saravanan (Sarathkumar) is a bus driver in a college. He also takes care of an orphanage which is home to many children and old-aged people. Indhu (Nikita Thukral), a student of the college, tries to woo Saravanan. Meanwhile, a few rowdies are found dead, who happened to be henchmen of Chakravarthy (Mahadevan), a local powerful politician. It is revealed that Saravanan is the man behind the murders.

A flashback is shown where Saravanan’s actual name is Chatrapthi. He is an army major and recipient of “Paramveer Chakra” award, which is considered to be one of the prestigious awards in the army. On his visit to his native village in Tamil Nadu, Chatrapthi finds that Chakravarthi has grabbed majority of the land in his village from poor farmers with plans of constructing a beer factory. Chakravarthi also troubles Chatrapthi’s widowed sister (Saranya) forcing her to hand over her land where she runs a small orphanage. As Chatrapathi opposes this, Chakravarthi along with his henchmen beat up Chatrapathi and his sister following which she dies. They also demolish the orphanage which led to death of a few children and finally grabs the land. Angered Chatrapathi kills Chakravarthi’s henchmen and goes into hiding to escape from police waiting for an opportunity to kill Chakravarthi.

Chakravarthi finds out that Chatrapthi is behind him for taking revenge and tries to protect himself. However Chatrapthi kills Chakravarthy in the end and surrenders to police. The court hands over Chatrapathi to the army.
