Sundaram (Saravanan) is a young wastrel while his father Ayyappan (Vinu Chakravarthy) is a rich house owner. Ayyappan can't bear Sundaram's laziness. One day, his cousin Priya (Suvarna Mathew) and her parents come from Mumbai to Sundaram's village. Priya is a well-educated and modern girl. Sundaram falls in love with her. Ayyappan decides to solemnise the marriage between Sundaram and Priya. In the meantime, Priya's parents arrange her marriage with another man. Ayyappan hides the truth to the naive Sundaram. At the wedding day, Sundaram manages to stop the wedding in time. In contrast, Priya slaps him and reveals that she was not in love with Sundaram. The groom's family cancels the wedding and Shanmugam dies of heart attack. What transpires later forms the crux of the story.
