Aarumugam, nicknamed Aaru (Surya Sivakumar), is a thug and dealmaker with a band of boys handpicked from the slums of Chennai. Aaru’s mentor Viswanathan (Ashish Vidyarthi) protects him, because he gives him the violent undercover he needs. When Vishwanthan declares war on his bitter rival Reddy (Jaiparakash Reddy), Aaru assists him. But Vishwanthan betrays him, resulting in the deaths of Aarumugam subordinates. He thus realises Vishwanathan’s true, evil nature and vows to destroy his power. There is also a subplot involving his romance with the college student Maha (Trisha Krishnan).
