Karnan (Vishal) is an orphan who grows up learning that a police's life is a happy one with lots of money coming in the form of bribes which inspires him to become a police officer. After years, he becomes a corrupt, cunning, manipulative and ruthless sub inspector of police. He is transferred to Chennai where he forms an immediate friendship with the local don Kaalirajan (R. Parthiban) by releasing his four brothers Ravi, Mani, Varun, and Sundeep from the jail who were arrested for smuggling. Karnan's attitude does not go well with his subordinate Abdul Kader (K. S. Ravikumar), a sincere police constable. In vain, he tries to oppose Karnan’s deeds.
Meanwhile, Karnan meets Sindhu (Raashi Khanna) and falls in love with her at first sight. With the help of two chain snatchers (Yogi Babu and Rahul Thatha), Karnan manages to steal her pet dogs, which are very precious for her. Karnan later manages to pose those chain snatchers as police constables and adds that they had to fight with Korean smugglers to retrieve those dogs, adding that he is an ardent dog lover which makes Sindhu fall for him. On her birthday, Kaalirajan's men kidnap her, and Karnan rescues her in time. Kaalirajan then scolds his henchmen for kidnapping the wrong person and apologizes to both of them.
As her birthday gift, Sindhu asks Karnan to save that girl's life who was supposed to be kidnapped and killed by Kaalirajan. Obliging the same, Karnan saves that girl named Santhiya (Pooja Devariya) and opposes Kaalirajan. They later reconcile and Karnan comes to know that Santhiya has proof of Kaalirajan's brothers' atrocities, which, if exposed, can kill them. Karnan meets Santhiya and comes to know that Bhavani was her sister who was kidnapped, raped, and brutally assaulted to death by Kaalirajan's four brothers for 14 days and the same was recorded by them. That was stored on a camera which is with Santhiya now. Karnan takes the camera and sends Santhiya and her mother to United States.
Before leaving, Santhiya's conversation with him brings a change in his mindset and he becomes an honest officer after a chain of events with Kader notifying the change in him. Karnan credits Sindhu for bringing the change in him and reveals the truth to her after which she forgives him. After Bhavani's dead body is found and an autopsy is performed by a female doctor, Karnan produces the camera as the evidence which turns out to be an empty one. Though no further evidence exists, Karnan asks a gap of one day to provide necessary evidence so that Kaalirajan's brothers do not escape as exonerated. He regrets not making multiple copies of the camera in a conversation with Sindhu and later, Kaalirajan's men attack Karnan when he is alone.
Karnan reaches the court the next day and adds that he is also one among the "five" men who sexually assaulted Bhavani and convinces the judge to put the five of them to death so that the other four do not escape death. This statement shocks the media and everyone, including Sindhu, who questions Karnan as to why he did it. Karnan is also hanged along with the remaining four. After some hours, Santhiya arrives Chennai and says to the media that Karnan was not involved in this rape of her sister. People respect him for this courageous act afterwards.
