Fresh and enthralling, this contemporary action thriller follows the adventures of Ashwin (Jiiva), a hardworking committed photographer working for a Tamil daily 'Dina Anjali'. His passion for coming out with pictures that speak and tell the truth, makes him a star in his office. Two lady journalists working in the same paper Renuka (Karthika), the investigative reporter and Saro (Piaa), who covers the entertainment section, develop a soft corner for him. Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu assembly elections are underway and the fight is basically between two corrupt politicians, Chief Minister Yogeswaran (Prakash Raj) and opposition leader, Kota (Kota Sreenivasa Rao) seem to be the main players. They will do anything to come to power, including bribing the electorate and inciting violence and criminal activity. Suddenly, due to Renuka’s writing and Ashwin’s scoop photos, a third force led by youth, Vasanthan (Ajmal) who believes in clean politics, emerges. Just before elections, while addressing a huge youth rally a bomb goes off at the election campaign meeting of Vasanthan, killing Saro. Ashwin and the general public are convinced that it is the handiwork of the traditional politicians, and go all out to support Vasanthan, who wins the elections and becomes the youngest Chief Minister.
