He sees Ramya, and assumes that she is crazy since she went into a mental hospital van. With the help of his friends, he proposes to her and she agrees for it.
Shiva learns that P has fixed a bomb somewhere. By the clues which were given by P’s henchman Wasim Khan. Shiva finds that P has fixed a bomb in a bus.

Shiva realises that Ramya is not crazy but a psychologist, and breaks up with her. His friends advise him that he needs to reunite with her. He decides to, but Ramya has left for America. Shiva also goes there to find her, and they reunite in Central Park. Then it is revealed that Shiva went on a mission in America so that he could catch P. When the mission is in progress, Ramya is kidnapped and killed by P.
Back to Chennai, Shiva is very sad about Ramya’s death. His grandmother asks him to take to her cemetery. She took some promises which were to kill P, marry a beautiful girl than Ramya and to give her a grandson.
Shiva sketches a plan to catch P by demonetisating 500 and 1000 rupee notes. He goes to a temple to attend his friend Bharath’s marriage. There, he meets Gayathri, a lookalike of Ramya and he gets shocked. He proposed her the next minute when he saw her. This demonstration forces P to stand at an ATM queue because he had 1 lakh crores of 1000 rupee note. Shiva executes his plan perfectly, but P escapes. Shiva catches him at his Kovalam Beach Resort. He kills him, but P comes alive and becomes the CM of Tamil Nadu.
Bodhi, a saint calls Shiva and says that P is immortal. The enmity between P and Shiva is for 76 generations. B.C. 300, King Adhiyamaan was ruling Kovai. He appointed Piyaar as dance teacher of the kingdom. But his dance was demonic. Bharathamuni, another dancer whose dance was divine, wanted to do a dance-off with Piyaar. The King also said that the winner will get a jackfruit which will give immortality to the one who eats it and also his daughter Kalissi will get married to him. But Piyaar’s henchmen kill Bharathamuni and his grandmother. So, Piyaar gets the jackfruit and becomes immortal.
