The movie opens with the communist party winning the state election in Kerala, but the Chief Ministerial candidate has lost the election. The party chief proposes the name of Ramadevan Nayanar aka RD Nayanar (Suresh Gopi), a former Kerala cadre IPS officer, who was dismissed by the previous government due to the influence of the villains, including some in the police - City Commissioner Maya Pillai (Vani Vishwanath), and DIG Pillai (Rajan.P.Dev). RD returns to Kerala from Calcutta and takes over as the Chief Minister, after which he uses his powers to take down his enemies with the help of his wife Indira IAS (Urvashi), and his former colleagues in the police force. What transpires later forms the crux of the story.
