The movie opens with a series of mysterious deaths of Indian agents in Malaysia. The Indian intelligence agency RAW puts Akilan on the job to investigate the deaths, and he discovers that the culprit is Love, a rogue scientist who has developed a drug that can cause two different personalities to coexist in one individual.

Akilan's investigation takes him to Bangkok, where he finds out that Love has a laboratory and is recruiting test subjects. Akilan decides to infiltrate the lab and take Love down. However, during the course of the mission, Akilan is forced to confront his own demons, which have haunted him ever since he lost his wife years ago.

As Akilan makes progress in his investigation, he discovers that Love's drug has a profound effect on him as well. He begins to experience hallucinations and develops intense bursts of energy that could lead to his downfall.
