PlotEdit

The film begins with the old blind man Pa. Ra. Palanisamy (Mugur Sundar) and teenager Chinna (Ashwin) setting a car on fire with the deputy collector Muralidharan (Muralidharan) inside. The police inspector Johnson (Karate Raja) is assigned to unravel the mystery behind the death. Palanisamy and Chinna then murder the college correspondent Rajendran in his office and make the murder look a suicide, but the forensic report shows that it was a murder.

In the meantime, the press reporter Prabhakar (Srinivas Rao) falls in love with his newly-appointed office colleague Maheshwari (Meenakshi Kailash). Later, Palanisamy poisons the drink of the wealthy man named Manohar in a bar. Prabhakar witnesses it, but Palanisamy and his aid escape from the place. With all of the evidence that he has collected, Johnson finds out that these three murders were committed by the same duo.

In the past, Palanisamy was a renowned scientist who got many awards for his achievements and strongly supported organic farming. One day, MLA Vaitheeswaran (Alex) and his four associates requested Palanisamy to sell his land to build an orphanage at that place, Palanisamy wholeheartedly accepted to sell it, but they cheated him and grabbed his land. Palanisamy had no other choice than to complain to the police. One night, Vaitheeswaran and his four associates broke into his house, killed his family, and left Palanisamy for dead. Palanisamy, who lost his sight, decided to take revenge on them with the help of the orphan teenager Chinna.

Back to the present, Palanisamy kills another person but is severely wounded during the fight and dies. Before dying, Chinna promises to him that he kill Vaitheeswaran, who is now a minister. Meanwhile, Prabhakar confesses to Johnson that he has seen the murderers. The film ends with Chinna kidnapping and killing Vaitheeswaran.
