The lead actors in the original were Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi.
The plot of the original movie is basically a story between a police officer and a criminal, the story goes like there is a tough cop Vikram who is the leader of a special task team formed to take down Vedha’s gang, which is wreaking havoc on the streets of Chennai and making a mockery of the law.
Vedha’s trusted aides are killed in an encounter staged by Vikram’s companion Simon, bringing him out of hiding. Vedha seizes Vikram and begins a dangerous mind game with him, leading to a quest to discover the truth about that fateful encounter.
