After killing Mohan Thomas to avenge his colleague Muhammad Iqbal's death. [N 1] Commissioner Bharathchandran gets acquitted from suspension and gets married with his girlfriend Indu and leads a happy life, until Indu is murdered by Mohan Thomas's goons, where Bharathchandran decide to raises his 10 year-old daughter who amusingly named as Indu, all by himself.

Mayambaram Baba, an iconic Muslim leader in Malabar, Kerala is murdered by a hired assassin named Kala Purohit Khan, amidst tight security in the premises of a special court in Mangalore where he was supposed to give evidence about the foul play behind an earlier communal riots by Janab Hyderali Hassan, who runs a crime syndicate. Hyderali felt that their existence would be questioned if Baba reveals the truths about the communal riots incited by them. As a matter of fact, the communal riots following Baba's murder are triggered and intensified by Hyderali himself, to throw the region into a state of chaos. Hyderali has other sinister motives also, like having the huge amount of land left behind by the fleeing population to himself for building a private sea port through which he hopes to pump illicit counterfeit money, drug trade and smuggling arms into the state.

The state's CM Thomas Chacko, entrusts the investigation of Mayambaram Baba's murder to Bharathchandran. Bharathchandran, along with officers ASP Anwar and DYSP Pookkoya report to IG Habib Basheer, who is entrusted as a guardian to Bharathchandran after the death of Bharathchandran's former mentor and I.G Balachandran. Bharathchandran works his way into the hierarchy of the Hyderali syndicate, starting with Shweta Nachappa, a Karnataka cop, who was on duty on the day of Baba's murder and actually seemed to know that he would be murdered earlier. Hyderali kills Shweta after he finds out that Bharathchandran is trailing her.

Later, It is revealed that Thomas Chacko is also in cahoots with Hyderali. Habib Basheer is killed while trying to save Bharathchandran from Kala Purohit's gang. Enraged, Bharatchandran confronts Hyderali and also brings the captured Kala Purohit, with Anwar and Pookkoya's help. Bharathchandran gives an empty revolver to Kala Purohit and asks him to shoot Hyderali. Kala tries to shoot Bharathchandran, but is later killed by Bharathchandran, who soon kills Hyderali in front of a frightened Thomas Chacko.
