The plot

The movie is set in the fictional village of Solaiyur and revolves around a dam which is the lifeline for the village. The dam is under assessment for structural integrity by the Public Works Department. The local minister(Jagapathi Babu) has corrupt intentions and wants to make money through a new dam project by killing the dam inspector before throwing the USB information at the temple.

The villagers want to perform a special Pooja to pray to the God Shiva. They decide to invite the grandson of Maharaja Lingeswaran who commissioned the dam and the temple. They believe the return of the line of the Raja will solve the problems surrounding the dam.

Lingaa (played by Rajinikanth in contemporary time) is the grandson of Raja Lingeswaran. His family has fallen on hard times and he is now a petty thief in the city. He is angry with his grandfather for squandering away the family fortune so he is unwilling to go to Solaiyur to preside over the temple function.
