Kamarasu (Murali) hails from a village and is employed as a driver with an industrialist Latha (Srividya) who treats Kamarasu as her own son. Kamarasu is very affectionate towards his widowed mother (Vennira Adai Nirmala) and takes care of her. Kamarasu falls in love with Vasanthi (Laila), who also hails from his village. Kamarasu is kind towards everyone and earns the love of villagers. Kamarasu's mother passes away which shatters him. However, Kamarasu comes back to normal with the help of Vasanthi's love and affection. A few days later, Vasanthi also passes away due to a lightning strike which makes Kamarasu worry a lot. Kamarasu decides to spend rest of his life serving the needy people as he has lost both his mother and lover. Latha takes care of Kamarasu and Kamarasu sees Latha as his mother. One day, Latha and her daughters meet with an accident and is admitted in a hospital with multiple organ failure. The doctor (Chandrasekhar) informs Kamarasu that Latha needs a heart transplant immediately while her daughters need other organ transplants such as liver, eyes etc. Kamarasu requests the doctor to take his organs thereby saving Latha and her daughters for which the doctor does not agree. Kamarasu jumps out of the window killing himself, so that his organs can be donated to Latha and her daughters. The doctor performs the transplantation which saves Latha and her daughters. Knowing this, Latha feels sad at the same time proud about Kamarasu's sacrifice. The movie ends with a message about organ donations.



Director Anbazhagan had proposed the story to Choudary in 1998 during a coincidental meeting on Marina Beach and subsequently impressed him after reading a collection of short poems and stories he had written, before being given the opportunity to narrate a story.[2]

The film was delayed for two years, with Choudary reviving it for release.[3]


Soundtrack was composed by S. A. Rajkumar.[4][5][6]
