The plot revolves around a former RAW agent who sets out to rescue around 200 people trapped in a mall in Chennai after a group of terrorists hijack the place. How the former ex-RAW agent handles the situation forms the crux of the story. A set resembling a shopping mall was erected and majority of the portions were shot there. The man behind the production design was DRK Kiran. Portions for the film were canned in Chennai, Delhi and Georgia. The film released in theatres on the occasion of the Tamil New Year.
In the meantime, Vijay has begun shooting for his next directed by Vamsi Paidipally in Hyderabad. Rashmika Mandanna plays the leading lady in the film. The film is tentatively referred as Thalapathy 66.
