and Anti-Narcotic Department are called upon for assistance by
their Indian counterparts. There are rumours that a drug gang
has recently moved their headquarters to Kuala Lumpur.
The Indian team is headed by the DCP (Rahman) who wants to break
the back of the drug operations of a drug lord. He believes that
capturing the drug Lord's dangerous and elusive lieutenant,
Billa, (Ajith Kumar), will be the most effective way of
accomplishing this. Billa's gang consist of Narang (Santhanam)

she has other plans - kill Billa. Billa was responsible for
killing her brother Ramesh as well as his fiancee, Kamini.

has captured Billa, even from his fellow officers, and tracks
down a look-alike called Jeeva, a lowly singer (also played by

pretending to be Billa. In return he will make sure that the
