The film — inspired by the 1997 Hollywood film Addicted to Love, starring Matthew Broderick and Meg Ryan — was released on 14 April 2006, coinciding with Tamil New Year and is considered a box office bomb. Upon release, the film was dubbed into Telugu and released as Maha Andamga Vunnavani Bhayam. The story tells a love relationship between two playful youngsters and their sacrifices.


Mano (Bharath) loves Jo (Mallika Kapoor) and he becomes her friend, hoping to help her win her love for Prem (Arun Vijay), whom Jo secretly loves. Then they both try to break Prem’s love with Nandini and succeed. Manu realizes Jo’s deep love for Prem and tries to unite them. Manu succeeds in making Prem fall in love with Jo. Finally Jo and Prem get married.

During the story the twists reveal that Manu had originally been in love with Jo but secretly tried to engage into her life by pretending to be in love with Nandini. Soon after realising her true love for Prem, he sacrifices his love for her and brings Prem and Jo together. Only in the last several scenes does Jo realise Manu's love for her, but she chooses to go with Prem.
