Produced by Gopi Manasseri under the banner of Abhirami Krishna Productions, Sultan revolves around Sivarajan (Vinu Mohan), a medical student who is already engaged to Nishitha, a junior student in the same campus. Sivarajan, only son of a teacher, comes from a rural background, while Nishitha is an affluent modern city girl, daughter of a doctor couple.
With the knowledge and blessings of their parents, they have been maintaining a steady relationship for many years. Sivarajan also has got a gang of friends (Naufal, Vivek, Sunny and Praveen) known in the campus circuit as the five men army.
With the entrance of an abusive boy who often annoys Nishitha, the film takes an interesting turn. Sivarajan becomes quite disturbed and falls into some kind of curious problems frequently because of this boy and due to his own pet name 'Sultan'. How he finds the root causes of all his troubles and how he overcomes them forms the rest of the plot.
