Kasi is a tale about the deception of appearances. Kasi (Vikram) is a blind poet and talented singer who supports his family by his songs. He lives in a village in Tanjore district and has an older brother Sevalai (Thalaivasal Vijay), who is a drunkard; an abusive, crippled father; and a younger sister Lakshmi (Kavya Madhavan). When the local landlord and former MP Raghupathi (Rajeev) returns to the district, he promises to help the locals. Raghupathi has a reputation as a God in the area because of his charitable works, and when a specialist eye doctor arrives, he promises to pay the fees for an operation to give back Kasi's vision. Elated by this news, Kasi learns that he has to find an eye donor. His lover Kaveri (Kaveri), who cannot speak, offers one of her eyes. Weeks later he receives Dinesh, the son of a powerful Union minister and his wife Radhika (Aishwarya). Unfortunately, the 'God-like' Raghupathi and Dinesh are not what they seem. Blissfully unaware of the sadness of those around him, Kasi looks forward to his operation. One morning, on the day of operation, Lakshmi was found dead and it is figured out that she commits suicide because of Raghupati and when Raghupati comes to attend the funeral, Kasi explains to Raghupati of what he did as he kills Raghupati by choking him.
