Sathya travels to K.G.F in Karnataka, India to bring Rosy, a bar dancer along with him. He offers some money to Rosy and tells her to come with him for a week to Pondicherry for unknown reasons, but she says she cannot come along as the owner of the bar is strict. Sathya gives the money to the owner which was meant for Rosy and she tags along.

Rosy wonders why she was taken along and who is Sathya. The film goes into a flashback. It was revealed that he was the right-hand man of dreaded gangster and casino mogul, Don David. David offers him some money and sends him on a dangerous mission to recover a hard disk that belongs to his ex-girlfriend Milan. The hard disk had some private files when he was in a relationship with her and Milan was threatening her as now he was married and had kids, and believes that disk can ruin his current relationship. Later Sathya learns that Don David was betraying him. He learns from his friend that David never had a wife and kids at all and the money given to him was fake.

Sathya becomes friends with Milan and asks her what was really on the hard disk. She reveals that in the past, David had taken a loan from a bank manager who was her friend. David had no intention of paying it back and the manager commits suicide. But before he died he had recorded a private clip of David. Sathya threatens David to pay back the loan and he does so. Milan then faces an accident and the doctor reveals that Milan needs some blood had a rare blood group, Bombay O+ and only two people had the blood group and the first one died and the only one remaining with the same blood group was Rosy.

The film returns to the present and David tries to stop Rosy from getting to Milan as he wants her dead. He sends some goons to Sathya but he overpowers them and continues on the road. David tries to overtake him and was unsuccessful in doing so. Milan is rescued and Sathya, when asked why he rescued her says that he wanted a bank loan through her help so he can open a club. The film ends with Sathya opening a club with her help.
