Plot[edit]

Shiva (Arun Vijay) and his brother Vichu (Vadivelu) are carefree youths, while their father Pandiyan (Dindigul I. Leoni) is a miser. Shiva falls in love with Ganga (Mantra) at first sight and tries to seduce her with Vichu's help. Ultimately, Ganga also falls in love with him. Gowri (Sangita) comes from her village and begins to work in Pandiyan's house as a maid. A few months ago, Shiva was bitten by a snake, and Muthu (Siva) saved him. Muthu cannot marry Gowri because of their horoscope. According to tradition, Gowri must get married to another man for a week and then can marry Muthu. Shiva, grateful to Muthu for saving his life, got married to her and left the village. Thereafter, Gowri did not want to marry Muthu anymore. Muthu was understandable and advised her to rejoin Shiva. Finally, Pandiyan accepts the marriage of Shiva and Ganga. What transpires later forms the crux of the story.
