The film follows a non-linear narrative.

1987: Guna (Samuthirakani), Velu (Pawan), "Jawa" Pazhani (Boxer Dheena), and Senthil (Kishore) kill a man at a restaurant in North Madras. Senthil requests Guna and Velu to surrender for the murder while he bails them out. A year later, the pair is still in jail, and it creates a rift between them and Senthil, despite Mani (Subramaniam Siva) and Thambi (Daniel Balaji), the brother of the deceased man, intervening.

2000: The new warden of the Madras Central Prison plans to weed out all nefarious activities in the prison, which are being controlled by Senthil from the 7th block. Senthil never steps out of the 7th block, fearing for his life from Guna’s men in the 11th Block. Anbu (Dhanush) and Velu’s brother Siva (Pavel Navageethan) are brought into the prison for fighting. Anbu saves one of Senthil’s henchmen Raju (Hari Krishnan), from being killed by Siva. Anbu is placed in the 11th Block under Velu and Mani. During a raid, he gives away a mobile phone belonging to Mani and is almost killed for doing so, before being saved by the warden.

1991: Anbu, Carrom, & Padma: Anbu is a skilled carrom player, and Siva often gets him to play bet matches for him. On the night Rajiv Gandhi is assassinated, the entire hamlet where Anbu lives loots nearby shops and makes away with various goods. A masked girl steals a sewing machine from Anbu, but he lets her go. The next morning, local cops and Thambi come to recover the stolen goods. Despite having his goods returned, the shopkeeper is keen on filing a complaint against Anbu as the latter had hit him the previous night under the pretext of not returning the sewing machine. Anbu accosts the girl Padma (Aishwarya Rajesh), but she refuses to return it. He gets beaten up by the shopkeeper and loses in that year’s carrom tournament. Anbu and Padma begin a relationship, during the course of which Anbu saves Guna from contract killers. The killers reveal that they are Senthil’s men. Things worsen between Guna and Senthil.

2000: Raju helps Anbu shift to the 7th Block after he smuggles in contraband for Raju. Senthil is still trying to harbour political aspirations through a local politician Muthu (Radha Ravi), who is also in prison.

1996: Anbu, Padma, & Pazhani: Pazhani teases Padma after she and Anbu are caught kissing. He also beats up Padma’s brother Kannan (Saran Sakthi). Anbu goes to speak to Pazhani but is also beaten up. After no one is willing to help him, he kills Pazhani. Pazhani’s men chase him, but he escapes.

2000: Anbu requests Senthil to organize a carrom tournament for the prisoners, which will help Senthil with his political aspirations. The final rounds of the tournament are held in the prison courtyard, which implies that Senthil must come out. Velu and Mani try to utilize the opportunity to kill Senthil. Senthil is able to save himself. However, Anbu stabs Senthil in his neck. Raju is the only witness but does not talk. Anbu explains his loyalty towards Guna.

1996: Anbu, Guna, & Chandra: After Anbu kills Pazhani, Thambi sends him to Guna. Guna's wife Chandra (Andrea Jeremiah) convinces him to send his brother Shankar in Anbu’s place to jail as it will benefit everyone. Senthil murders Shankar, so Anbu pledges his life to Guna. Sometime later, trying to confirm a party post, Senthil surrenders himself to the cops and calls for a truce with Guna. Guna comes to know that Senthil has requested Guna and Velu’s name to a police hit list. He calls Anbu to help him and provides him with a plan to gain Senthil’s trust in prison and subsequently kill him.

2000: Anbu is bailed out of prison by Guna but tells him that he does not want to work for him and wants to hone carrom players instead. He later marries Padma.
