Ravi Chandrasekharan is a young blogger who has a keen interest in the life of KTN Kottur - a writer, poet and revolutionary freedom fighter. Ravi, being involved actively in theatre and arts, expresses his wish to recreate the story of KTN Kottur on stage rather than make it a book. To explore the different shades and the mysteries surrounding the character, he arrives at Kottur to learn the intricacies of the person.

After reaching Kottur, Ravi finds it strange to adapt to the surroundings, he attends the cultural village fares and also learns about their customs. Ravi Chandrasekharan in an attempt to know about KTN also understands the customs of people living there are weird too. One such incident is where he wakes up abruptly in the middle of the night covering his mouth because of nausea. Some bad odour gives Ravi a vomiting sensation & he checks around but finds nothing. The next morning, he finds ashes of a dead creature & realises that this was the bad odour which made him uncomfortable & from then as he encounters the twists in the life of KTN Kottur and the mystery surrounding his disappearance on the day India won her Independence makes up the story.



It was the first time Ranjith and Dulquar joined hands for a film.[7] The first teaser of the film released on 12 June 2014[8] followed by the second on 17 June.[9]
