The story opens in the British India reign, where a British gentleman and his porter are trying to catch a ferry. On the way, however, one of the suitcases being carried by the porter falls and opens, revealing many diamonds. The porter steals some of the diamonds and sends the gentleman on his way. He hides these diamonds in a trunk, which he buries near a temple in the Gulaebaghavali village. The story then shifts to 2018, where Maasha (Revathi) fools Mayilvaganam (Sathyan), thinking that her son is dead. Then, she steals his car. Meanwhile, Badri (Prabhu Deva) and his boss Nambi (Mansoor Ali Khan) perform petty thefts for a living. While at a pub, Badri spots Viji (Hansika Motwani) and falls for her. Soon, due to a misunderstanding, Badri unknowingly accepts to steal a priceless statue from the temple at Gulaebagavali and runs into Viji. The duo escapes from the villagers' hands and falls into the hands of a businessman named Sampath (Madhusudhan Rao) and his brother-in-law (Anandaraj), who is also Munish's (Ramdoss) boss. Nambi and Munish's boss forcefully send Badri and Viji to Gulaebaghavali to steal the trunk (it is revealed that the businessman is the porter's grandson). With some help from Munish and Maasha, they steal the trunk. Munish opens it, and a skeleton is revealed. After a lot of confusion, the trunk is delivered, where it is revealed that the diamonds are stored in the skeleton. After a long argument, the police comes to the spot and finds that the diamonds were very valuable. After they escape from the police, it is revealed that during the fight, a hand of the skeleton fell in Maasha's car. On finding this out and how Maasha tried to deceive the other three, the trio chases her. A parallel storyline involves Mayilvaganam and a don named Annachi (Rajendran), which ultimately culminates in the climax.
