Haji had lost his MP post a year ago after a write-up by Roy Alex in a magazine. Being an expert and a previous ace trader of the flow of foreign currency reserves to Kerala, Haji states to Roy that, most of the foreign reserves are mainly concentrated along the Gulf-American belt starting from Kottayam and extending till the coastal town of Varkala. He invited Roy as a part of reviving his failed business, and to eliminate his business rival Narendra Shetty (Rajeev), whom he considers to be the man who destroyed his business.

Then Roy follows a van carrying a drama troupe, which reaches a home far away as a part of a drama. Roy sees the owner of the home, a businessman, and Chakrapani (Bheeman Raghu), the drama director, having demands of black money, and he captures it. But soon Chakrapani finds them, and with his dogs follow Roy and one of his dogs kill him. At the same time, Rahim Haji, passing through a nearby road, tries to contact Roy, but soon realizes that the young journalist is dead.
