Anitha, a school girl and daughter of Nassar, a police officer on the trail of the mysterious gang, has a crush on Vikram. She is not aware of his real identity. The reason for Vikram to take up illegal activities is out of frustration.

This shocked him and spurred him into taking law into his own hands. Nabbed by Nassar and hauled before the special court, Vikram reveals the crimes committed by those he had kidnapped. He offers to free them if they are sentenced to life imprisonment. When the judges refuses, the public storm the court. In the melee, Nassar lets the gang members go scot free along with his daughter.
