Somu (Rahman) is an advertising photographer who exclusively works with female models. His family is a very modern family. His elder brother Balu (Nizhalgal Ravi) falls in love with his friend Maala (Ramya Krishnan), a modern woman, and he discloses it to Somu. They finally get married. Thereafter, the entire family searches for a bride for Somu. In turn, Somu gets married with Sumathi (Sukanya), who is from a strict conservative family. Sumathi becomes a suspicious wife and she finds her husband's family's behaviours irritating. What transpires later forms the crux of the story.
