Shiva (Shiva) the Universal cop has left the police department and has returned to his hometown Cinemapatti. He is brought back in to resolve a crisis. Once the situation is handled, he is asked to join the department by the Commissioner of Police Yezhusaamy (Chetan), but he refuses and walks away. P (Sathish), a dreaded don who poses a threat to society kills Shiva's wife by using a cell phone bomb. Shiva is forced to rejoin the department.
Meanwhile, Shiva is finding a girl to marry on his grandmother's request (Kalairani). His conditions for a girl are, he wants a girl who is bubbly and behaves like a fool. Then he sees Ramya (Iswarya Menon) and ensures that she is a fool since she went into a mental hospital van. With the help of his friends, he proposes to her and she agrees for it.
Then, Shiva finds out that P has fixed a bomb somewhere. By the clues which were given by P's henchman Wasim Khan (O.A.K.Sundar). Shiva finds that P has fixed a bomb in a bus. Then he comes to know that P has fixed the bomb such that if the bus is driven less or more than 5km/h, it will blast. However, Shiva saves the people inside the bus. Wasim Khan was killed by Ritika, P's henchwoman. Shiva then discovers that there was someone in the department who is informing P about their ideas. He then discovers that it was Inbashekhar (Nizhalgal Ravi) and kills him. Shiva gets suspended for killing him.
Meanwhile, he comes to know that Ramya is not a fool whereas a psychologist. Knowing this, Shiva broke up with her. His friends advised him that he needs to reunite with her. He decides to but he comes to know that Ramya went to America. Shiva also goes to America to find her. They reunite in Central Park.
Then it was revealed that Shiva went on a mission in America so that he could catch P. When the mission was in progress, Ramya was kidnapped and killed by P.
Back to Chennai, Shiva is very sad about Ramya's death. His grandmother asked 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 demonetizing 500 and 1000 rupee notes. He goes to a temple to attend his friend Bharath's(R. Sundarrajan) 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 leads P to stand at an ATM queue because he had 1 lakh crores of 1000 rupee note. Shiva executed his plan perfectly but however, P escapes from there. Shiva catches him at his Kovalam Beach Resort. He kills him but however, he comes alive and becomes the CM of Tamil Nadu.
Bodhi (Gerard Pio), 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 (Ajay Rathnam) was ruling Kovai. He appointed Piyaar (Sathish) as dance teacher of the kingdom. But his dance was demonic. Bharathamuni (Shiva), 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 (Iswarya Menon) will get married to him. But unfortunately, Piyaar's henchmen kill Bharathamuni and his grandmother. So, Piyaar gets the jackfruit and becomes immortal.
Now, Shiva needs to go to BC 1492 to win the dance-off with Piyaar. He gets a time travel watch from a watch mechanic. He goes to BC 1492, wins the dance-off, Kalissi, and the jackfruit. Then he comes back to 2018, and he meets P who kidnapped Gayathri. He reveals that he ate the jackfruit and P is no more immortal. He fights with his henchmen and Gayathri sings. Irritated by her singing, P kills her. Shiva also kills P and goes to jail.
In the post-credits scene, Shiva comes back from jail after 25 years. But his grandmother kills him, showing her villainous "D" nature, albeit being acquitted in the first film.

Tamil Nadu theatrical rights of the film were sold for ₹3.5 crore. Thamizh Padam 2 received mixed reviews, unlike its predecessor. Critics praised the humour and performance of the cast, especially of Shiva and Sathish, but criticized the confusing and wafer-thin storyline. Sify wrote "On the whole, Tamizh Padam 2 is fun unlimited. [..] Sometimes, a good laugh is all you need to make your day." Behindwoods wrote "Combining the emotions and famed moments of many films and personalities in the same scene was noteworthy. Amudhan and his team have put to use, all these combinations to bring out a full-fledged entertainer." Cinema Express wrote "While the film's willingness to let nobody off the hook is truly refreshing, the comedy doesn't work nearly as often as it should". Times of India wrote "First things first — Tamizh Padam 2 offers what's expected from it. With a slew of spoof scenes taking potshots at umpteen number of Tamil movies, the unique attempt works this time, too." Hindustan Times wrote "While the film is a laugh riot, it lacks the freshness Tamizh Padam had. It works as a sequel because the films and themes they have picked are relatable. However, lack of freshness can reduce this franchise to a formula too."
