Venkat (Gautham Karthik) hails from the Burmese city of Rangoon, which has now been renamed Yangon by the regime. He lives as a Tamil Burma repatriation in a neighbourhood called Annai Sivagami Nagar also known as Burma Nagar in Ennore, Chennai. His family, in search of a better livelihood, has migrated from his birthplace to a neighbourhood of Chennai, where many other Tamil-Burma repatriates live.

Venkat grows up as an irresponsible youth and now is a college dropout who is looking for a job. Through his childhood friend Atho Kumar a.k.a. Kumaran (Lallu), he gets an employment under Gunaseelan a.k.a. Siya (Siddique), a respected businessman in the neighbourhood. His job is to attract passersby to the small secondhand gold shop. Venkat grows as a trustworthy aide to Siya, who is a secondhand gold dealer of Chennai's wholesale gold market, Sowcarpet. At one instance, Venkat saves the life of Siya from a murder attempt. This garners a promotion for Venkat. Venkat is promoted as the sole manager for Gunaseelan's import-export gold shop. The shop, only on the outlook, is an import-export shop, but underneath a back gate for the city's gold smuggling wing. Meanwhile, Venkat meets a club singer named Natasha (Sana Makbul) and falls in love with her. She speaks sense into Venkat and tries to pull him out of smuggling and illegal trading.

Venkat decides to do one last job. He, with his closest friends of life, Kumaran and Tiptop a.k.a. Sasi (Daniel Annie Pope), he indulges in gold smuggling to clear Siya's debts with the profits earned. In the same motive, he, along with his friends travels to Myanmar on a smuggling deal in an illegal route via a road crossing the borders, for Siya. Venkat's fancy-looking, street-smart goes awfully wrong as his money that he earned mysteriously goes missing in Yangon, Myanmar. This brings a disgrace to him and Siya amidst traders in the Chennai market. Venkat, in order to clear further debts, indulges in kidnap and ransom demanding. In a mishap, the three friends accidentally shoot the kidnapped kid. Things go awry. Furthermore, the plot unfolds the mystery, and the blatant truth is shown to Venkat. His learning from the experiences of a unique childhood, friendship, betrayal, and prison sentence makes him a learned man.

After four years, Venkat gets released from jail and starts his own small jewelry shop in the name of his father. Now, Venkat faces life with hope and faith, as a reformed man of his mid-20s.
