The film starts off with two girls driving on the road when they are stopped by two policemen, who proceed to attempt to rape them. One of the girls sends a voice message in a WhatsApp group telling their situation. Manimaran (Jiiva) hears the message and rescues them. He is from a neighbouring place called Mayavaram where he runs a local TV channel called Kokkarako TV. This is opposed by the MLA (R. N. R. Manohar), who keeps getting outsmarted by Maran. Exasperated, he pays a local goon named Vyasarpadi Malli (Varun) to kill him. Malli reaches Maran's home, where his pregnant sister Ilakkiya (Gayathri Krishnaa) goes into labour.
