The film starts with Kailasam (Ravi Kale), the somber bigwig who is performing the last rites of someone dear to him, but the appearance of Kottai (Jiiva) (first in the chaotic Koovagam festival and later atop a Veeranam pipe) swinging a scythe maniacally sets the tone for the rest of the film.
Cut to the flashback a few months ago: In Ramnad, Kottai’s mother (Saranya Ponvannan) is cutting down logs and boasting about her son: he is a god who deserves to see the outside world and derive its benefits. Kottai journeys to big bad Chennai in company with Vellaiyan (Ganja Karuppu), who dances with every Karagattam dancer on the roadside, makes lewd jokes, and appears to have only one thing on his mind. They end up at the massive home of Kailasam, the local terror who slices up people whenever he can. However, our heroes are unaware of the fact.
