Mandela is set in the backdrop of a remote village where the limited number of eligible voters are divided by caste lines. Meanwhile, Rathnam (G. M. Sundar) and Mathi (Kanna Ravi) are half brothers, however, they belong to different castes. While Rathnam looks after the north part of the village, Mathi heads the south. On the other hand, their father (Sangili Murugan), who is a decent and honest man, is the head of the village panchayat. The story of the film unfolds when Sangil's character falls sick and refuses to pick any of his sons as his political heir. Yogi Babu is seen playing the character of a barber, who unwillingly becomes a deciding voter between two contesting political parties.
Apart from Yogi Babu, the ensemble star cast of the film also features Sangili Murugan, GM Sundar, Sheela Rajkumar and Kanna Ravi, among others. Mandela, produced by S Sashikanth, premiered on television two days before the Tamil Nadu elections.
