Gethu begins with Craig (Vikranth), a sniper, who is ordered to assassinate India's top scientist, Abdul Kamaal (if you did not get who the director is referencing here, here's another tip: he has written a book titled Agni Iragugal). The challenge for him is to draw Kamaal, who never gets out of his research facility, to make a public appearance. So, he comes to Kumily, a sleepy hill town, with a plan in mind. Meanwhile, in the town resides Sethu (Udhayanidhi), a librarian, and his father, Thulasi Raman (Sathyaraj), a PE teacher. The righteous Thulasi gets into trouble when he takes on Kandhan (Mime Gopi), the owner of a bar which has sprung up next to the school and even gets framed for his murder. With Kandhan's politician brother and gangster mother baying for his father's blood, Sethu must clear his father's name. What he doesn't realise, initially, is that his efforts will also save Kamaal.
