Mahaan 2022 Storyline
The film begins in 1968, where Mohandoss (Nassar) is a middle-aged liquor-ban activist whose son Gandhi Mahaan (Vikram) is the exact opposite of him, and is addicted to gambling and drinking. Sathyavan Soosaiyappan (Bobby Simha) is his friend, who gambles against Gnanodhayam (Muthukumar). Gandhi is a prodigy in gambling and always helps Sathya win matches. One time, Sathya keeps on losing and confronts Gandhi, who tells that he has no choice but to make him lose because Gnanam kidnapped his dog, Joker. Everyone fights over it, and their parents had to interfere in it.
In the present day, Gandhi is a school teacher who is abandoned by his wife Naachi (Simran) and son Dada (Dhruv Vikram) after he decides to live a life of his own, with personal freedom. Gandhi breaks bad to emerge as the king of the state’s liquor empire with the help of his friend Sathyavan and his son Rocky (Sananth). The trio launches a new liquor brand and tries to get into the monopoly with the help of their politician friend Gnanam.
Dada, who is now a police officer, is tasked with bringing down his father’s liquor empire. He is torn between his duty and his love for his father. Gandhi, on the other hand, is determined to protect his family and his business.
The film culminates in a showdown between Gandhi and Dada, where Gandhi is killed. Dada is left to pick up the pieces and try to rebuild his life.
