In Nadodi Mannan, Dileep plays the role of Padmanabhan, a village youth. Though a son of an ardent politician, Padmanabhan has no particular inclination to any political party. He finds his means of living by participating in demonstrations for various political parties. He then moves on to the city, where he gets elected as the Mayor. He then starts his ways to clean the city.
Ananya is seen playing the role of Meera, a bold character. Archana Kavi plays the role of Athira, a member of a former royal family. Mythili is seen as Rima, a broadcast journalist.
