The film revolves around the life of an honest police officer named Sathyaprathapan, who is determined to locate and bring to justice a terrorist named Al Kabir.

The film opens with an attack by Al Kabir, a terrorist, on the Indian embassy in London, resulting in the death of many Indians. The Indian government is shaken by the incident and formulates a plan to bring Al Kabir to justice. The plan involves sending a sharp and capable officer, Sathyaprathapan, played by Mohanlal, to infiltrate Al Kabir's gang and bring him to justice.

Sathyaprathapan, who is known for his honesty and fearlessness, accepts the mission and begins his journey to Nairobi, where Al Kabir is believed to be hiding. To gain the trust of Al Kabir and his gang, Sathyaprathapan poses as a smuggler and successfully gains entry into the gang. He soon becomes a close confidant of Al Kabir and his men.

As he spends more time with Al Kabir, Sathyaprathapan learns about his past and the reasons that turned him into a terrorist. Despite his closeness to Al Kabir, Sathyaprathapan never loses sight of his mission, and he is determined to bring the terrorist to justice. However, things get complicated when Sathyaprathapan falls in love with Al Kabir's sister, played by Geetha.
