Varun is a Video Game Designer living in the Us. He is made the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, after his dad resigns the post. Varun, who has no idea about all this, accepts for it. He does nothing for it, except playing video games in his room. After his dad gets arrested, riots take place in the city. He then realises the importance of his position and stops the riots, by threatening, in a press meeting. This is not liked by the opposition party. Meanwhile, Vinothan is attacked and gets admitted in the hospital. Varun comes to know that the case his father was fighting for, involved a property of 10000cr. He, along with his friend Wong, investigates about it. He faces a lot of problems in his post as a Cm, but gains the support of the people, with the help of Mahendran. He then takes part in the elections, and wins it. This is not liked by his father, as he thought Varun was not his son. It is then revealed that Vinothan's wife had committed suicide because she didn't like him cheating with other women. Varun, wins the elections and Mahendran tells that he loved Vinothan's wife, before they got married. But he didn't meet her after that. He also told that Varun was Vinothan's own son, and not any other's. Vinothan realises his mistake and asks Varun to forgive him.
