Raja (Ajith) is paranoid about getting married. Priya Mahalakshmi (Jyothika) arrives at his place and begins to compel him to marry her. The reason: Raja was confessing his love to someone else thinking that she was Priya.
Under the cover of darkness Priya confesses her love for Raja. Thinking that it was the other Priya Mahalakshmi (Priyanka Trivedi) who was speaking to him, Raja begins to love her.
