A local temple grows to fame, as the impoverished people expressing their wishes to the deity, find them being fulfilled.
Coming to hear of this, a disbelieving DIG of Police instructs his team to investigate, but ends up frustrated when they themselves become believers and devotees. He then assigns this case to Ravi Sharma, an atheist, with hopes of apprehending the suspect, a CBI Officer, Krishna, who works with the Economics Offenses Wing.
Krishna publicly exposes many high-profile cases, including the wealthy Ponnusamy a.k.a. Padmanath. This public humiliation leaves Ponnusamy paralyzed and enrages his daughter, Subbalakshmi. She swears to avenge this humiliation and attempts to ensnare Krishna in a web of lies and deceit.
The police with no leads, continue to be baffled by repeated sightings of a caped crusader, who appears to have superpowers.
Will they be able to tie in Kanthaswamy as Krishna in disguise? Or will they let the unidentified force fulfilling wishes, continue to work his magic?
