Thiru (Vidharth), a henchman, and Salim (Ashok) attempt to murder Sadasivam, a rich man. When they try to escape from the spot, they are spotted by Kathir (Nandan Loganathan), who is going to meet his lover Priya (Gayathri) in a bid to elope with her.
While Kathir tries to save Sadasivam, Priya’s bag is stolen by petty thieves Senthil (Nivas Aadithan) and Palani (Blade Shankar). In the meantime, Vicky (Ajmal), who is a musician, comes forward to blackmail a Minister (Azhagamperumal) to give money to Sadasivam to get back his house.
Meanwhile, Parasuraman (Naren) plans to rob Manikandan (Subbu Panchu), who is Sadasivam’s friend (and the one who ordered the duo to kill him) by availing the services of Senthil and Palani. It is also revealed that Durga (Radhika Apte), Sadasivam’s wife, also wants to kill him.
While Senthil is deeply in love with Dhanam (Nivedhitha), a sex worker, Vicky’s girlfriend Nandita (Priya Banerjee) wants to take revenge on her brother for creating troubles to her boyfriend.
As if these episodes are not enough, a gang of criminals kidnaps a teenaged girl and they share their den with Thiru. How and why these characters unite at a point form the crux of Chithiram Pesuthadi 2.
Director Rajan Madhav, who started this project under the title Ula, rechristened it later as Chithiram Pesuthadi 2, perhaps for the title value. This film is no sequel to the debut movie of Mysskin.
Chithiram Pesuthadi 2 presents us a hyperlink story. Perhaps, it could be one of the early movies of Tamil cinema in this genre. But, due to the delay in its release, we are used to such flicks (Kurangu Bommai and Maanagaram).
Though the moral intention of the director is visible in the movie and there is competence in the making, the film starts wandering at point of time and becomes predictable too.
The plot moves at a slow pace and there is certain amount of lacking in intensity. All these things hamper the proceedings of the movie, which otherwise has an intriguing plot.
Talking about the cast, most of the actors look younger than their present form and have done justice to their roles. Technically, the team has strived to present what is the best possible output. Despite there being many male characters, female characters stand out in this flick.
