This is the story of 3 people Rajeev, Shreya and Revathi. Rajeev dates Shreya for sometime without being deeply in love but eventually gets engaged to her. Just before their wedding, he meets Revathi and finds Revathi as the love of his life and so breaks up the engagement. Rajeev is now passionately in love with Revathi.
