Their fathers feel that they are good-for-nothing and decide to corrupt the politician Anja Nenjam (Thyagu) to find them a decent job. Anja Nenjam is linked to Pannaiyar (Malaysia Vasudevan), a ruthless landlord who exploited the villagers. Pannaiyar orders him to flee with their money, otherwise, nobody will respect him. Their friend Pazhanisamy (Vivek), who is supposed to be a supervisor in the city, is back to his village and was also cheated by Anja Nenjam.
