Ganesh (Parthiban), the product of a Mudaliar-Gounder intercaste marriage, loses several prospective brides due to this and spends his time dreaming of marriage. On a busride to Chengalpattu to take up a promotion as bank manager, he is involved in an accident. The scene shifts to three months later when he finally shows up at Chengalpattu. Nandini (Devayani), living in the house opposite his, showers affection on him, giving him coffee, providing him with hot water, etc. But when he with his parents, visits her to talk about marriage, she rejects him. Revealing the real reason behind her attachment to Ganesh, she tells him of her ill-fated love affair with army officer Subramani (Ajith). Eager to send him on his way, Nandini sends a letter in Ganesh's name to Ganesh's home, accepting the latest girl they picked for him and Ganesh returns home to find arrangements for his wedding in full swing. Coincidentally, the girl turns out to be someone (Suvalakshmi) he had dreamed of marrying during his pre-Nandini days.

The film was described as "a film definitely worth watching" by a critic from Indolink.com and cites that "it is bound to touch your heart and make you wonder about the power of love", Indian Express wrote "The plot is almost always predictable, and at times, even degenerates into blatant stupidity. But the director presents all this with such a straight face, that you find yourself lapping it all up". The film went on to win the Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Storywriter for Rajakumaran.
The success of the film led to a Telugu remake as Ninne Premistha, starring Srikanth, Soundarya and Nagarjuna in guest role which was critical and commercial success. It was remade in Kannada as Ninne Preethisuve, starring Shivrajkumar, Rashi and Ramesh Aravind. Malayalam film Pranayamanithooval was partially inspired from this film.
