The story in Bangalore, a few months before the exorcism of 2016, tells the story of three men from different walks of life who face life’s problems before and after the ban. Kobra is a petty cheater who has problems with the police and cheats people into paying the corrupt police and living in peace. Joseph is an honest cop who criticizes everyone in the police force for not taking bribes, but his wife is a staunch supporter of his charitable nature. His strong stance on not going back to corruption gets him in trouble, as his wife with cancer falls ill and thinks about how to raise money for an operation.
Providence puts Joseph in a position of power because immediately after the exorcism he can spy on people with dirty money. When his wife’s circumstances compelled him, Joseph devised a plan to steal the people’s unwanted acquisitions, and Cobra was instituted as a tax officer. In one such attack, the fake IT inspector finds out that Raji is hiding in a house and offers him a large sum of money to avoid being arrested. However, Raji soon realizes the IT officers are wrong and after Joseph and Cobra return to his silence, he asks them for parts. Joseph is dissatisfied, but reluctantly agrees to his wishes.
It turns out that the money stolen from Raji actually belonged to a violent top notch police officer who gets mad at the discovery of the theft and tries to find the thieves in order to bring the thieves to justice. Realizing this, Joseph thought about stopping further attacks, but was discouraged by Kobra and Raji, who asked for more money. He agrees to plan and carry out the latest attack on Pataki Pando, a corrupt politician, to increase his wife’s surgical budget deficit. However, the program backfires and Raji gradually escapes with his life. This causes him to cool off and leave the group, and Joseph pulls out of the plan. Joseph apologizes to Ashock for stealing money and forgives him for the dire circumstances that compelled him to do so. The operation’s funds are collected through a loan and Yusuf’s conscience is cleared as the burden of stealing money is removed. Kobra decides to host the show again and this time Kobra struggles to uncover a huge amount of black money owned by Pando. However, he is captured by Ashok before he can escape with the money. Ashok is proud to have abducted many people this way, as documented by Raji, who previously volunteered to help Kobra remotely. Forced to see Kobra and Raji unharmed, Ashok uses the stolen money to flee the country, and then rests on Bangkok Beach 280 days later.
