One day Raj Shekhar murders his friend/partner Madan and cunningly puts the blame on the grandfather who is arrested and put behind bars. He manages to escape from prison one night to kill Raj Shekhar, but is murdered by Raj Shekhar in front of Kumar and Vasanthi instead.

Kumar, with the help of Vasanthi start investigating and gathering evidence of the murders of Madan and the grandfather. Kumar's family and his lady love, Vasanthi, are put in danger as he tries to prove Raj Shaekar's guilt. How does Kumar catch the culprit Raj Shekhar? What happenes to the love of Kamal and Vasanthi?
