Plot[edit]

For several years, Thangapandi (Prabhu) is in feud with his stepbrothers Sellasamy (Ponvannan) and Raasa (Vignesh).

In the past, Durairasu Thevar (Sivaji Ganesan), the village chief, planned the marriage of his daughter Nachiyar (Raadhika), who got married to a rich man. A few years later, after Thangapandi's birth, her husband died, and Durairasu Thevar forced her daughter to remarry with her cousin Kathiresan Thevar (Sivakumar). Then, Thangapandi became jealous of the newborn Sellasamy. He left the house and decided to live with his grandfather Durairasu Thevar. After Durairasu Thevar's death, the conflict has hardened.

The liquor smuggler Angusamy (Ilavarasu) hates Thangapandi since the latter beats him up in public one day. Sellasamy wants to get married as soon as possible after his uncle Angusamy convinced him to, but that's disrespectful to not arrange the marriage for the elder son first. Finally, Sellasamy got married before Thangapandi.

Meanwhile, Malar (Saranya Ponvannan) is in love with her cousin Thangapandi, and he proposes to her. At Thangapandi's marriage, Nachiyar comes to see it secretly, and she witnesses how her son Thangapandi loves her.

Later, Nachiyar falls ill, and Thangapandi feeds her last milk (Thalaikoothal) to choke her and to finally end her sufferings.
