Bhagyaraj makes a pseudo reference in this film to Bharathiraja's Puthiya Vaarpugal film in which Bhagyaraj was the dialogue writer and cast as hero of the movie. Bhagyaraj used this fact in this movie where he cast his mentor P Bharathiraja in a guest role (movie director) as himself who decides to cast an extra(Bhagyaraj) as hero and dialogue writer of his on-screen movie after accidentally discovering his skills. The movie did extremely well at box office.
This story revolves around an unemployed youngster who tries to become rich for his big family. Bhagyaraj is an unemployed gold medallist with five younger sisters, and a mother. He is unable to find a job in spite of his education, and is supported by his sisters, and his house-owner played by Sivaji Ganesan. After many failures, he goes to Chennai in search of job, and meets Radhika. The rest of the film is about how he succeeds in life and what he ends up with. The best part of the screenplay is its ability to portray many of the existing social conditions in the society, including unemployment of educated youth and dowry.
