Sekhar (Chandrasekhar) and Murali (Prabhu) are best friends. Murali sacrifices his job opportunity for his friend, thus Sekhar becomes a customs officer. Thereafter, Murali goes back to his native village. His cousin Mahalakshmi (Kushboo) falls in love with him.

Ranganathan (Vijayakumar), Murali's father, works with the smuggler Daaha (K. Rajpreeth) for 25 years. When Murali knew about his father's profession, he convinces his father to quit his job. Finally, Ranganathan decides to leave this odd job but Daaha kills him for fear of reprisal. Murali decides to take revenge and becomes also a smuggler.



After the tremendous success of Chinna Thambi, P. Vasu began work on his next film Kizhakku Karai, a crime film. The crew will be more or less the same that worked in P. Vasu’s Chinna Thambi except music director Ilayaraaja. Prabhu and Kushboo would play the lead pair. Cinematographer K. Rajpreeth would essay the role of the main antagonist. The film has music by Deva, editing by P. Mohanraj and cinematography by Ravindar.[3]
