The film revolves around three friends who get into trouble over a missing motorcycle and a stolen motorcycle.
Vandi opens with a shot of a bike. A voiceover, by actor Shiva, informs us that the film is the story of this bike, which even has a name – Duttu. But then, for over an hour, we get the story of three, hard-on-luck, young men, who are roommates – Krishna (Vidaarth), a waiter at a hotel, Rafiq, who works at a roadside eatery, and Arun, who’s employed at the railway parking space. Money is a constant problem and Krishna manages to make the situation worse by losing an iPhone that belongs to a gangster-type. And then, the bike that he uses temporarily, taken from Arun’s parking space, is found to be a stolen one and has even been used in a robbery, landing him in trouble with the police. How do the three men extricate themselves from this position? And what exactly is Duttu’s story?
