During a wedding function, Kulasekaran falls under the spell of the shy young woman Sangita (Sangita Madhavan Nair). He talks to Sangita and he tries to seduce her. Sangita really likes his funny way of talking, she eventually falls in love with him and they even talk about their marriage. When Kulasekaran tries to kiss her, she pushes him away. Disappointed by his behaviour, she runs away from the wedding hall.

Later, Kulasekaran falls in love with Archana (Roja). Archana is an arrogant college student and she is the daughter of a district collector (Vijayakumar).
