The film features a talented cast including Arya, John Kokken, Shabeer Kallarakkal, Dushara Vijayan, Pasupathy, Anupama Kumar, and Sanchana Natarajan. Set in the 1970s, the story revolves around the intense rivalry between two clans, Idiyappa Parambarai and Sarpatta Parambarai, in North Chennai. The film explores the boxing culture prevalent in the locality and the political dynamics associated with it.
In the early 1970s, in the neighborhood of North Madras (Karuppar Nagaram/Perumparacheri), Kabilan, a Dalit laborer working at the Madras Port, aspires to become a renowned boxer like his late father, Munirathnam. However, his mother Bakkiyam adamantly opposes his dreams, as Munirathnam’s involvement in boxing led to his untimely death in an ambush orchestrated by a rival gang. Kabilan finds support from Kevin.
In 1975, during the period of the Emergency declared by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, Rangan, a former boxer, coach, and member of the political party DMK, organizes a boxing tournament between the Sarpatta and Idiyappan clans.
A highly skilled boxer representing the rival Idiyappan clan participates in the tournament. Following the match, Rangan declares that he will groom a prominent boxer to defeat Vembuli, the champion representing the Idiyappan clan, in the upcoming match.
