Petta 2019 Plot:-
Kaali, an elderly man, takes up the job of a boys hostel warden at a college in Ooty. He notices that the hostel is dominated by a group of unruly final-year students, which are led by Michael (Bobby Simha), the spoiled son of a local leader named Gnanam.
Kaali puts a stop to Michael’s antics, which leads to enmity between the two. Kaali also forms a close bond with a NRI hostelite named Anwar , who is in a relationship with Anu, the daughter of Mangalam, a pranic healer. Kaali convinces Mangalam to accept her daughter’s relationship with Anwar, and they end up falling in love.
Michael, who lusts for Anu, is angered on hearing of her relationship with Anwar. He attempts to harass them, only to be stopped by Kaali, who ensures the suspension of Michael and his friends, with Anwar recording and sharing the humiliation of Michael and his gang. This video is noticed far away in Uttar Pradesh by a local goon named Jithu, the son of a powerful politician called Singaaram alias Singaar Singh.
Singaar, on seeing Anwar in the video as well as in a photo with his mother on Facebook, sends his men to Ooty to kill Anwar, for unknown reasons. At the same time, Michael, humiliated at his suspension, sends his men to beat up (but not kill) Kaali. Michael’s plan backfires as he and his men are caught in the fight between Kaali and Singaar’s men.
Kaali subdues Singaar’s men, following which Anwar learns about his past. Anwar is the son of Maalik, who was Kaali’s best friend. It is also revealed that Kaali’s real name is Petta Velan and that he was a well-respected man in his village in Madurai district. 20 years ago, Maalik was in love with Poongodi, who was impregnated by him out of wedlock.

Petta 2019 Production:-
In early February 2018, after completing his filming commitments for Pa. Ranjith’s Kaala (2018), Rajinikanth held final discussions with a group of young directors, including Arun Prabu Purushothaman, Atlee and Karthik Subbaraj for his next project.
On 23 February 2018, production house Sun Pictures announced that they would produce a film starring Rajinikanth to be directed by Karthik Subbaraj. To accommodate the film’s shoot throughout 2018, the director postponed the pre-production work of another proposed film starring Dhanush for Y NOT Studios.
Subbaraj revealed that he was confident about approaching Rajinikanth to work on his film after the actor was impressed with his earlier project, Jigarthanda (2014) and expressed a desire to collaborate. The pair had first discussed the script in early 2017, but Rajinikanth did not take a final call until finishing his existing filming commitments to Kaala and 2.0 (2018).
