The neighboring Zamindar (Kitty) forces the villagers to leave the village and they land in Aadhityan's village. Aadhityan helps them and then clashes with Zamindar. In the meantime, Chinna Pandi (Pandiarajan), a Tamil teacher, is engaged to teach Tamil to the Telugu girl Manga (Silk Smitha). Zamindar finally accepts the villagers in his village. Vedachellam (Delhi Ganesh) is a gambling addict who borrows money to Zamindar. Zamindar wants to get his son Vinod married to Vedachellam's daughter Rasathi (Sukanya). Under debts, Vedachellam accepts reluctantly Zamindar's proposal. Chinna Pandi advises Vedachellam to save the village and to get Aadhityan married to Rasathi.

Reception[edit]

K. Vijiyan of New Straits Times said, "if more care had been taken with the acting, it would have been remarkable".[1] The Indian Express called it "yet another film that spins a puerile yarn and expects the audience to lap it up, insulting their intelligence in the bargain".[2]
