Kanchivaram

The film begins with an aging man named Vengadam (Prakash Raj) being released from jail in 1948. He is only being escorted for two days (the reason not revealed) back to his hometown of Kanchipuram, known at that time as Canjeevaram after British rule.

He is being transported under the custody of two policemen on a bus from Coimbatore to Kanchipuram. As the journey takes place, Vengadam recalls his past symbolically as several events that occur in the bus (such as sounds) remind him of his past.
