In the 10th Century, the Chola dynasty rules prosperously across South India, under the reign of Sundara Chozhar. His sons, Princes Aditha Karikalan and Arunmozhi Varman are mighty successful in their conquering for the Chola Empire in Kanchi and Sri Lanka.
A group of devote Pandya soldiers scheme to avenge their King Veerapandyan, who was slain in the battlefield by the Chola Crown Prince, Aditha Karikalan. And parallel to this, in the dead of the night a group of royal chieftains of the Chola kingdom come together secretly with the agenda to usurp the throne from Aditha Karikalan and place his uncle Madhuranthakan as king. Leading this mutiny is the Chola treasurer and minister of finance, Periya Pazhuvettarayar.
It's now a race against time for the Chola Princes to win the battle against the wrath of the Pandyas, the enraged army of the Rashtrakutas, the powerful Pazhuvettarayar's betrayal.
