Ganesh is a slum boy who drives an auto to support his family. Bhuvana is the neglected daughter of a rich man and is in search of true love. Bhuvana is drawn to Ganesh's honesty and good heart. She confesses her love to Ganesh, but he turns her away, saying that a rich girl like her would never be able to live a life of poverty with him. Bhuvana tells Ganesh that she will show him she can do it and comes to his house with just the clothes on herself. As Bhuvana and Ganesh share a happy love and understanding, life is all roses, until a storm disrupts their happiness. Bhuvana meets with an accident and fights for her life. The doctors say nothing but a heart transplant could save her. Ganesh has no money for the operation and is unable to bear the thought of a life without Bhuvana.

Ganesh is so feverish in his thoughts, so he decides to donate his heart to her. In a scene, Ganesh is seen whispering to her unconscious and bedridden in the hospital that he is one of the few luckiest who sacrifice their heart for their lover. As it is against medical ethics, the doctor who treats Bhuvana takes a strong objection to Ganesh's fanatic thoughts. However, Ganesh is so adamant in his demand that he takes a revolver and thrusts its barrel into his mouth and declares that he is going to kill himself right on, unless the doctor is willing to transplant his heart to Bhuvana. With no other option, the doctor agrees. Ganesh is later seen sitting a hospital bed, relishing the beautiful moments he spent with Bhuvana. Slowly he puts the barrel of the revolver on his head, presses the trigger, and dies.



Soundtrack was composed by Srikanth Deva and lyrics were written by Na. Muthukumar, Thamarai, Pa. Vijay, Gana Palani.[3] Rediff wrote that "If you can forget the remix of old hits, this is not a bad album".[4]
