Unending caste discrimination surrounds Puliangulam and Vepangulam villages to such an extent that small incidents lead to shedding of blood to very large extents. Under such circumstances, Sakthivel (Simbu), son of Puliangulam Periyasamy (Raj Kiran), falls in love with Angel Devi (Sonia Agarwal), daughter of Vepangulam Soosai (Nazar). As Soosai comes to know of the issue and that his daughter is also in love with Sakthivel, he opposes the affair and decides to send Angel to a convent to become a Nun. Unable to disobey her father’s words, Angel decides to let go her love and become a nun. She does not change her mind, even after everyone comes to know the truth that she is not Soosai’s real daughter. Just as arrangements are made for the final procedures for her to become a nun, there comes an opposition following which the story tells whether the two lovers unite.
This movie was shot fully in Nagercoil, Kanyakumari district.

One of the high points of the film is cycle race where hero Silambarasan and villain Sathyan take part. There are 3 fights in the film, but they've been very realistically picturised, says the director. The entirely village-based subject has been shot at locations in Nagercoil, Kuttralam, Munnar among other places. Says Hari, "For the cycle race we shot, we collected about a 1,000 people for the scene. We took about five days to shoot. The total shooting for the film was wrapped up in 59 days".
Hindu praised simbhu's performance as "restraint and maturity".
