The executives of the multinational mining corporation Nirvana Group inform Goa-based Krishna Das (Prithviraj Sukumaran) that his ancestral property in north Kerala, leased out to a non-governmental organisation (NGO) by his late grandfather, is both rich in minerals and able to be sold because the lease period has expired. Nirvana Group offers him a large sum of money as an advance on the purchase. The NGO currently runs a tribal school on the property, which is situated inside the Kannadi Forest Range. When Krishna Das and his friend Thanseer (Prabhu Deva) visit the property, they are kidnapped by local tribal men and taken to a cave deep in the forest.

Vavvali, a Tamil Muslim boy, takes orphaned Kelu with him to his home, and treats him as his brother.

Kelu and Vavvali are next seen as adults hunting in a forest somewhere in Chirakkal. They rescue the princess of Chirakkal Bala (Nithya Menon) from a group of abductors, armed with Portuguese pistols, who apparently have been organised by her cousin Bhanu Vikraman (Ankur Khanna). Under the orders of Bhanu Vikraman, Kelu and Vavvali are soon captured by the Chirakkal guards at Puthoor Ferry and tried before the king of Chirakkal (Amole Gupte). In the
