The reason why

we are here today is...

...this man, Kabali

He influenced the society

to oppose the Govt

He was also accused of

instigating a ruthless massacre...

...in a palm oil estate

during a Hindu temple festival

For this offense...

...he was sentenced to

25 years of imprisonment

And he is being

released this Wednesday

Kabali's family was killed

in the same massacre

By the leader of

the gang 43, Tony Lee

'Tony Lee has invested...'

'...in many industries'

'Such as hotels'

'Import and export'


'Criminal activities'

'And drug trafficking'

'Veerasekaran is a pillar

of strength to Tony Lee'

'Many places are under his control

including Petaling street'

'With these 2 men

working for him...'

'...Veerasekaran's criminal activities

in Malaysia spread like the plague'

'One of them is Loga'

'He is the one who controls

drug trafficking for gang 43'

'Loga fixes the market price

for drugs in Malaysia'

'Another is Cheeni'

'He is involved in gangsterism'

'Loan shark activities,

leasing of parking space illegally'

'Recruiting school students

to join gang 43'

'A few years ago

the activities of these gangs...'

'...spread like wild fire

beyond the control of the Govt'

'To have an upper hand, the Govt and

Police planned a special Operation'

'In a clash between the Police and

the gangsters, Veerasekaran escaped'

'And Tony Lee died in a car crash'

This is the death certificate given by

the Police endorsing Tony Lee's death

We don't have to talk

about gang 43...understand?

Can we concentrate on

more important issues now?

Do you really think Kabali will

be quiet when he gets out of prison?


Though he is in prison...

...he uses his influence

to help Indian people

Specially the youngsters

who drop out of schools

And join gangsterism

He does all these things

with the help of his friend Amir

And an organization called

Free Life Foundation

'His thoughts and

vision have changed'


the problem is for him

They have tried to kill him

13 times inside the prison

Let's release him

Why waste time

talking about an old man?

Might as well release him

The Govt will take other measures

If needed


(song from 'Adutha Varisu')


Hey! Ask him to stop


Yes, huh?

Kabali is coming out tomorrow?



Kabali, huh?

Okay, bro


Is he coming out tomorrow?

Heavyweight, bro

Yes, bro?

He is out tomorrow

Let us close his chapter a.s.a.p

We can show him

the power of 43!


Okay, bro



Just 2 months

I'll be out

I'll stick out

my head for you

Definitely I'll be there for you

Just a matter of time



Should have been holed up here

till your last breath

You are really fortunate

to get out so soon

Recently 40 thugs were

killed in an encounter

More than 30 were Tamilians

Any Tamilian is being

branded a villain now

Though I am a police officer...

...sometimes they look

at me suspiciously too

This is an earnest request from me

Don't go back to

your old ways again

I'm saying this

only for your own good

(cool chuckle)


You're being targeted

by the 43 gan-




Good to have you back

Allah's will!

(happy laughter)

Can I hug you

just once?

By all means hug me

You are back, anna

This is enough for me

Thank God

Ravi, your hair has turned grey!

- How are you?

- You guys rock!

All your blessings, anna

We are good, thanks to you

They are all our boys

Totally trustworthy


He teaches in our school

- Good afternoon, sir
