In the year 1998, A. Shiva, a carefree police constable, is in a joyous relationship with his girlfriend, Revathi, who works as a driving instructor. The couple decides to elope and tie the knot. However, Shiva’s life takes an unexpected turn when he becomes embroiled in a road rage incident. During the altercation, he apprehends Rajasekhar, also known as “Raazu,” a notorious gangster who carries out illicit tasks for CM Dakshayani and her political party.
While in custody, Raazu reveals to Shiva that he is, in fact, a CBI officer named George. He discloses that he needs to produce Raazu in a Bangalore court within 48 hours. George possesses crucial information regarding Dakshayani’s participation in a planned bomb blast at Morampudi. The objective of the blast is to destabilize a regional party-led state government.
A violent confrontation ensues, resulting in Raazu killing Ravi, an associate of Shiva. Shiva, along with Revathi and Raazu, boards a train bound for Bangalore. Nataraj, a menacing figure, and his gang pursue them. Another skirmish takes place on the train, during which Raazu separates from the compartment to ensure Shiva’s safety.
