The film’s story is similar to fantasy films like Yamaleela, Yamudiki Mogudu, Yamagola and Yamadonga.
Bullet Raja (Ravi Teja) is a small-time crook with a good heart. He bumps into Swetha (Taapsee Pannu) at a function and falls in love with her, but she is already engaged to Harbour Babu (Sushant Singh), a powerful local goon. One day, using Swetha’s dance master Vidya Balan (Brahmanandam), Raja and Swetha manage to run away from Babu to reach a hilltop, but Babu tracks them down and is severely beaten by Raja. At the last moment, Babu uses his Scorpio car to hit Raja off the hilltop. Raja clings on to a branch growing on the hill but slips off it and falls down, yet still manages to survive. Just then, Chitragupta (M. S. Narayana) changes the story, and the car that was stuck on the edge of the hill falls down on top of Raja, and as he was crushed. The Scorpio car blasts, thus killing him.

Pazhanivel was put behind bars when he was 10 years old. He killed his father’s (Yaar Kannan) “keep”, who made his mother’s (Rekha) life a hell by exploiting her to cajole his “keep”. He went to jail, and his father turned an aimless vagabond. Karpagambal, who disowned him when he was sent to jail, grew up and got married to businessman Jeevanandham (Biju Menon). Karpagambal is living in a fool’s paradise, believing the man, who is actually an antisocial element. However, she need not worry about anything. Pazhanivel, who is now 25 years old, has come out of jail. He gets a job in his sister’s house, unearths Jeevanandham’s shady deals, reforms him, and puts his sister’s life on track. Meanwhile, he finds his lady love Deepti (Kajal Aggarwal).
