Shanmuga Pandian (Vijayakanth) is a kind-hearted person who lives with his father Selvanayagam (P. C. Ramakrishna), mother Lakshmi (Srividya), and sister Sumathi (Meena Kumari). Selvanayagam is a respected estate owner. Later, Shanmuga Pandian and Divya (Ranjitha) fall in love with each other.
At Sumathi's wedding, Selvanayagam is falsely arrested for supplying weapons to terrorists. If it turns out to be true, all his savings will be donated to the coffers of the State. Thereafter, Sumathi's wedding is stopped, Lakshmi becomes paralyzed, and Divya refuses to marry him only because Shanmuga Pandian became poor.
Afterwards, Nandhini (Kushboo) hires Shanmuga Pandian in her company, but Nandhini's father considers Selvanayagam as his nemesis. Shanmuga Pandian and Nandhini fall in love with each other.
The conspiracy against Selvanayagam was in fact planned by the corrupt politician P.K.R (S. S. Chandran) and his son Vasu (Kazan Khan). Later, Divya marries Vasu, but the sadistic Vasu tortures Divya. The rest of the story concerns Shanmuga Pandian proving his father's innocence and exacting revenge on the villains with the help of Divya and Nandhini. In this process, Divya dies, and Shanmuga Pandian eventually marries Nandhini.
