Aayirathil Oruvan starts with a disclaimer stating that the events and characters depicted in the movie are pure fiction and not based on actual history, people (living or dead) or incidents. The story of Aayirathil Oruvan unfolds from the time when the Cholas were driven out of their kingdom by the Pandyas in southern India. To escape from them and save the life of his successor, the Chola emperor sends his son (along with his people) to a secret territory unknown to his enemies. The Cholas also take away with them an idol sacred to the Pandyas, which angers them even more. To capture the escaped Cholas and retrieve their idol, the Pandyas extend their invasion to the unexplored territories which the Cholas have covered with their prince, but fail in their invasion.
Several centuries later, Indian archaeologists continue searching for the existence of the Chola empire based on clues left by the ancient Pandyan warriors. But all the archaeologists disappear during the search missions. Archaeologist Chandramouli (Pratap Pothen) is the last person to have reportedly traced the empire but he also does not return from his mission.
The Indian government organizes a search expedition led by archaeologist Anitha (Reemma Sen) to find Chandramouli and the Chola Empire with assistance from the Indian army led by Ravi (Azhagam Perumal). They meet Lavanya (Andrea Jeremiah), daughter of the missing archaeologist Chandramouli. She assists Anitha and gives crucial documents prepared by her father on the Chola dynasty with instructions on the route to reach the destination. She also joins the expedition since her insight is considered essential for the success of the project.
Along with the army, Anitha employs a group of porters headed by Muthu (Karthi), who behaves like a spoilt brat. He ogles both the women and has naughty confrontations with them. The journey leads them to an island near Vietnam. On the way, they are attacked by cannibals, warriors, snakes and witchcraft. Many porters and army men are killed.
