Because Ponniyam Kodhi, a marriage broker feels deceived on his commission by Bhavani Amma (C. K. Saraswathy), the mother of Selvy (B. Saroja Devi), whom she is soon going to marry to a strong good match, attractive Manogaran (MGR), only son of big family, that of Siva Shankaran Pulai (K. D. Santhanam), an immense landowner, the matchmaker, out of revenge, damages the engagement!

At the same moment, somewhere else, a gang led by Varada (M. N. Nambiar), the ex-manager of Siva Shankaran Pulai's domains plans with his walk-on Vadjaravel (S. V. Ramadoss), to appropriate all the fortune of his former boss, by usurping the identity of his son and more exactly, the beautiful face of Manogaran!

The affair is facilitated by a mysterious doctor and by a machine of his invention!

Entranced by greed, Vadjaravel volunteers to undergo an operation of plastic surgery to look like his victim (Manogaran).
