Plot[edit]

Suji is the only daughter of billionaire Vishwanathan and plays pranks on the unsuspecting. One such prank she does is conducting an interview for choosing a personal secretary for her father, in which she chooses Ram as the secretary. Vishwanathan's friend Moorthy, manager Ajay, and Swarna want to take over Vishwanathan's property, so Moorthy sets up Raja to marry Suji. However, Suji marries Ram.

Vishwanathan suddenly dies of a heart attack, and Suji goes to Ooty but is killed by Ram, Moorthy, and Ajay. Suji becomes a ghost and decides to take revenge. Suji witnesses Mayamma, a lookalike who works a fake exorcist and asks her to act as herself. Suji witnesses that the real Ram is kidnapped by the villains and it is Raja whose face was changed as Ram through plastic surgery. All the baddies suspect that she might not be Suji and finds out that she is Mayamma. In the climax, Ram signs all the documents, brilliantly ties up his look-alike Raja, and gets him burnt. All three villains meet their fate: Swarna turns insane after seeing a skeleton, Suji possesses Moorthy's body and kills Ajay, and Moorthy is hanged.
