The movie begins with a group of six women who live together as friends after their attempt at living a successful married life is thwarted due to various reasons, majorly because of men, sexual abuse, dowry harassment and the backward society. They also form a music band called "kalyana agathigal" to raise funds for charity to the underprivileged. Ammulu, a young runaway girl, joins the gang of girls and becomes a part of the household.

The story is about how their lives make wild twists and turns as they cope with the society and try to find true love.
