Plot[edit]

A group of four friends (Vimal, Barani, Nishanth and Gaurav Narayanan) live lives in their own way in Madurai. They are callous youth, who go hammer and tongs to make both ends meet. Vimal, a wedding videographer comes across his childhood friend Anjali, who is a compere in a local cable TV channel and love blossoms.

However, one event changes the course of their life. Vimal bashes a youth for taking obscene video clippings of a girl and blackmailing her with ulterior motive. The youth’s father (Kamala theatre owner Raju) finds out the men behind the attack on his son.

He hatches a conspiracy and ensures that the friends themselves turn foes for each other. In the meantime, it’s time for Vimal to tie the knot with Anjali. Did the baddie succeed in his mission is the crux of the story.
