Pazhassi Raja raised his voice against the unjust revenue policy, which they tried to impose in Malabar. The tax policy caused much chaos and there was widespread agitation.

The Kurichiyar tribe members offer support to the king in his fight for justice. How will the King's brave rebellion against the powerful and wily British unfold?
