Damodaran's grandmother was waiting for her grandson's return, unaware of his death. Vishwanathan helps Damodaran's family by paying their debts from a bank and also from some local people and thus saves their small home and its surroundings from being auctioned for not clearing the debt. He eventually falls in love with a high-tempered young woman named Bhanu ( Damodaran's sister) before his best friend Johny came for him. But Vishwanathan had to reveal the truth to Bhanu that, he and his friend Johny accidentally killed Damodaran. A series of events that follows causes misunderstanding between Vishwanathan and Johny, and they become enemies of each other. Later Johny realizes his mistakes and they both understand each other.
