Parthiban plays Ayya, a respected man who runs a cinema theater. The story begins when bombs are placed inside the theater during a movie. Surya and Rattan play police officers who want to defuse the bombs without letting the audience know. Vikram plays a man inside the theater, and Suvalakshmi the woman outside who loves him.

Ayya's ex-wife (played by Jayanti) does not help when she makes a tear-filled request to him to evacuate the theater, against the police's advice. By the time Ayya makes a decision, however, Suvalakshmi has snuck in and warned Vikram; others, hearing her words, begin to run out of the theater. Panic ensues as everyone makes a mad dash for the door.

Roja plays a reporter, Raman a secretary.
