During the time when India was fighting for independence, many Tamilians were sent to Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur) from South India as labours on contract basis. Kabali and other Tamilians had to face a lot of injustice during their tenure. Kabali stood against his landlord for the welfare of all the Tamil people and joined under Tamilnesan (Nassar) who was a don who was fighting for the rights of Tamil Malaysians. Tamilnesan was murdered by Veerasekaran or Veera (Kishore) who was also a part of Tamilian Welfare gang but he was against Tamilnesan rules and regulations. Veera was interested in illegal activities like smuggling drug and forcing women for prostitution as Tamilnesan was against the illegal activities Veera planned and killed him. After Tamilnesan murder Kabali who was his right hand took over the gang. Kabali too was against the illegal activities and tired to stop Veera. Veera planned in such a way that he could take revenge on Kabali as well as become the don of Malaysia. Veera manipulated Tamilmaran who was Tamilnesan’s son by telling him that as he should haave taken over the gang as he is the son of Tamilnesa and not Kabali. Tamilmaran became a poppet in the hands of Veera and got involved with him in the plan to get rid of Kabali.
Tamilmaaran invited Kabali and his wife to the temple for a function which was a trap planned by Veera. Kabali was attacked and beaten up brutally and Kumudha was shot. Kabali killed Tamilmaaran in front of his son for betraying him but the cops arrested Kabali for having killed many people in the temple. Veera succeeded in his plan as he sent Kabali to the jail on a false crime and Tamilmaran was killed in the hands of Kabali. Now, there was no one and he could take over the don position.
Did Kabali find his wife? While searching for his wife he gets to know about something which he was not aware of from the past 25 years, so what is it that he finds out? Did Kabali survive from the attacks made on him by his enemies? To know what happened, you will have to watch the movie.
