The film revolves around a young man who joins a local gangster and becomes a part of their criminal activities, but eventually realizes the consequences of his actions and decides to take a stand against the gang. The story follows Guna (Vikram Prabhu), who is a college student from a small town. One day, he gets into a fight with a group of men who are harassing a girl, and he ends up killing one of them. The girl, initially scared of Guna, eventually becomes friends with him and helps him flee the town. Guna then arrives in Chennai and joins a local gangster, Thiru (Kavin), who takes him under his wing and turns him into a trusted member of his gang. Guna becomes involved in Thiru's criminal activities, which include smuggling, drug trafficking, and extortion. He also falls in love with Niranjana (Manjima Mohan), Thiru's sister, and gets her pregnant. However, Guna's past catches up with him when the police start investigating the murder he committed in his hometown. As Guna realizes the consequences of his actions, he begins to question his loyalty towards Thiru and his gang.

Vikram Prabhu delivers a powerful performance as Guna, the conflicted protagonist who struggles between his loyalty to his newfound family and his conscience. Manjima Mohan is impressive as Niranjana, the strong-willed woman who falls in love with Guna despite his dark past. Kavin, as Thiru, is convincing as the menacing gangster who stops at nothing to get what he wants. The film's director, S.R. Prabhakaran, does justice to the script by keeping the story engaging and the pace brisk. The action sequences in the film are well choreographed and add to the overall intensity of the film. The cinematography, by Sivakumar Vijayan, captures the essence of Chennai and its underbelly in a realistic manner. The film's soundtrack, composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja, is one of its highlights.

Overall, Sathriyan is an enjoyable and engaging film that will appeal to fans of action dramas. With a strong cast, a well-written story, and solid direction, the film is a worthy addition to the Tamil film industry.
