As revealed in the teaser, cell phones across the country become puppets of Akshay Kumar's character who is out to kill every person who uses phones. This leads to scientist Dr Vaseegaran (played by Rajini) to investigate the incident. Once he realises the extent of damage the Fifth Force (crow man Akshay Kumar and his minions) can do, Chitti (Rajinikanth) is brought back: He introduces himself saying, “Hi I am Chitti, version 2.0.”

While Fifth Force wants to destroy human beings, the other technological invention, Chitti, is out to save the world.

An epic moment from the trailer is when Chitti says: “I will put your screens on fire” and begins to shoot at the screen. Don't miss the last scene from the trailer!
