Nakul (Prem) and Divya (Ramya) are married couples on the verge of divorce. As the movie starts both of the lead characters arrive at the Family court, to seek divorce. The actual movie unfolds in Flashback scenes as both remember - how they met and fell in love. They also face parental opposition for their marriage and they eventually marry against their wish and start a separate life altogether with their friends. Prem then starts an advertising firm. He is helped by Darshan Thoogudeep (in a mini guest appearance playing himself) for his first ad and eventually he becomes quite successful in his profession. He starts to neglect Divya and due to some mis-understanding is found with his colleague in a compromising position. Thus Divya abandons him and moves out of their home and goes to live with her parents. Prem tries unsuccessfully to woo Divya back with many tricks which fall flat and cause more tension on their relationship. Finally Divya understands her husband and returns to their home to see him in bed with another woman - which is the last blow for their relationship.

In the climax, Prem and Ramya are granted Divorce. While they are leaving the court, a criminal tries to flee from the policemen taking Divya as hostage, Prem fights to free her from the criminal and is stabbed to death. By now Divya realises Prem's true love for her and confesses the same at the hospital.
