Arumugam is in love with his childhood sweetheart Yamini (Priyamani) His best friend is the rich kid Karthik (Sathya), whose sister is an arrogant tycoon Malini Devi (Ramya Krishnan). She and her uncle (Mahadevan) hates Karthik’s deep bonding with Arumugam, who she finds to be below her stature. Malini, through her machinations, is able to separate the friends and bring Arumugam to the streets. Arumugam, after his mother’s (Seetha) grave is bulldozed and Mallika is humiliated, vows to bring Malini to the streets.
