Plot[edit]

Parijatham (Kushboo) was a famous folk dancer in her village and many rich landlords tried to woo her. Parijatham's mother Pattamma wanted a son-in-law who will let Parijatham dance after the marriage. She finally got married to another folk dancer Palanisamy (Sivakumar). Palanisamy's brother Kottaisamy (Selva) was a young wastrel who spent his time with Kattamuthu (Goundamani). Later, Parijatham changed Kottaisamy into a responsible person. Kottaisamy got married to the folk dancer Mala (Abhirami). Rumours around Parijatham and the rich landlord Naicker (Vinu Chakravarthy) became more intense. Palanisamy could not bear this rumour and split up with the pregnant Parijatham. One day, Kattamuthu's sister was raped by a rich landlord, she then committed suicide and Kottaisamy ridiculed the rapist in public. After this incident, the rapist joined forces with the other landlords, they prevented Kottaisamy to dance for the village festival. So Kottaisamy and Mala struggled to survive, Mala eventually died during a dance show and Kottaisamy became a drunkard. In the meantime, Palanisamy brought up alone his baby son and Parijatham had to stop dancing.

Many years later, Palanisamy's son Velpandi (Prem) falls in love with Amaravathi (Anusha). Palanisamy finally apologizes to his wife Parijatham while Kottaisamy decides to take revenge on his enemies. What transpires next forms the rest of the story.
