Kosi (Arya) and Selva (Bharath), are contract killers working for a middleman with the ironic name of Sami (Cochin Haneefa). Director Vishnuvardan portrays this morbid telling of two orphaned youths with incredible realism of trust, friendship, and ultimate betrayal masterfully. As the film revolves around young men struggling at life, who bear with confusion and encounter incredible hardships, it is all too unbearably real. Kosi is an unblinking man with a stubborn feel for life thereby refusing to love and be loved. Selva, deaf and dumb, is equally intrepid although he has a heart ticking beneath the dark, dire exterior. Pattiyal is the ultimate tale of friendship, and to what degree that friendship can go till death do them part.
Saroja (Padmapriya Janakiraman), a salesgirl at a garment company is an outgoing and sprightly girl and is a friend of both Kosi and Selva. She is in deeply in love with Kosi but the latter only finds her presence as a nuisance whereas Saroja's chief manager who stubbornly tries to make Saroja sleep with him. In stark contrast to this romance, is the love between Selva and Sandhya (Pooja Umashankar) who are smitten with each other after some fate-based encounters that bring some light-hearted humor to the film. As the film progresses, Kosi and Saroja end up sleeping together when Kosi begins to drink excessively, promptly making him start to realize his feelings for Saroja. Unfortunately this new-found happiness does not last as their profession does not allow it to.
In perhaps one of the most bone-chilling climaxes in Tamil film history, Kosi and Selva set out to assassinate Avinashi Nachimuthu Gounder (Santhanabharathy), a business tycoon and uprising politician as instructed to do so by Sami. Kosi and Selva mutually agree to make this assignment their last and to begin leading normal lives with their newfound loves Saroja and Sandhya respectively.
Upon preparing for the assassination, Kosi becomes unable to think as he finds himself overwhelmed with feelings of love, at which point Selva decides that he should finish the execution himself and Kosi should go speak with Saroja. Kosi visits Saroja at her home where he finds her with shivering and with bruises. Saroja then tells Kosi how her chief manager intruded the house and sexually violated her after she refused to love him. Infuriated at this, an emotionally shaken Kosi finds the manager and beats him to a horrific death. Meanwhile, Selva had cunningly assassinated Avinashi Nachimuthu Gounder and is returning home. What happens to Kosi and Selva is the rest of the story.Kosi is then killed by Avinashi's relatives.Later,Selva who returns later finds out about this unfortunate event and seeks revenge.He visits Sandhya before he goes to fight the person who killed Kosi.He manages to kill every one who's responsible for Kosi's death except for the dealer(None know that he betrayed Kosi and Selva).Then,when he reaches home(injured badly),Sandhya tries to get help.The boy who appears in the early scenes(who asks for job them) stabs Selva and throws sand onto his wound.Selva dies in Sandhya's lap.The boy now getting the job(assasin) from the dealer.(seems to every that this boy would end up the same way as Kosi and Selva)
