The story starts up with a flash back where in Raja Lingeshwaran (Rajinikanth) is a rightful heir to a famous dynasty that once ruled most parts of Southern India. Natives of that village follow whatever Raja Lingeshwaram says. Because of his urge to help the poor, his nobility makes him gain that priceless love of those villagers. Raja Lingeshwaran takes up the initiative and requests the Britishers to build a much-needed dam that would serve well for the people. But his idea is opposed citing a political reason and hence he leads from the front and inspires each and every villager to take up the responsibility to build a dam for themselves without seeking help from the foreigners. And then movie comes to present, son of Raja Lingeshwaram, Lingaa (also played by Rajinikanth) is a small-time thief who leads a carefree life. One fine day, Lakshmi (Anushka) meets Lingaa and asks him to inaugurate an ancient temple built by his grandfather. Lingaa rejects her proposal, saying that he is not interested in knowing about his grandfather who has left him in poverty. Soon, he gets involved in a robbery scam and he agrees to Lakshmi’s proposal, to escape from the police. He heads to his native village with Lakshmi. Once he lands there, he comes to know about a heart wrenching story about his family.
