Story: Kannan (Vijay) is the only son of Jaisankar and Sri Vidya couple. Since his dad is rich, Kannan spends the money lavishly. Charlie is his friend. Kannan is in charge of arranging the college cultural function. He happens to hear Manimekalai (Dimple) sing in a temple and he asks her to sing in the college function. Manimekalai refuses. All of Kannan's attempts to make her sing fails. In that process Kannan falls in love with her. But, Manimekalai hates him.

Manimekalai gets him arrested for eve-teasing and triggered by that, Kannan tries to marry Manimekalai by force. That fails miserably and Kannan's life takes a big hit. To forget all these and to start a new life, Manimekalai goes to Ooty and joins Karan's company. Kannan follows her to Ooty - this time he wants to convey his apologies to her. Manimekalai hates him and tries to make him leave Ooty. The series of incidents which follow leads to the climax.

Vijay, Karan, Jaisankar and Sri Vidya provide the required acting. Dimple's (debut) acting is OK, but, she can improve more in her acting skills. Delhi Ganesh has acted as Dimple's father and he has been wasted. Manivannan has a separate comedy track and it is enjoyable.
