Kannan tries to woo rich girls and marry them and try to make his living. Once Kannan with Vasu went to give saree to Varmaji (Nedumudi Venu), who is Ayyapanashan's friend and is a 'Thampuran' of the 'Kovilakam'. Kannan once meets Radhu (Vedhika) and he falls love with her. Kannan accidentally stops a pooja which was being held there and is forced to stay at that place for more than fortnight. In the process Kannan gets more attracted to Radhu and once he gets into her room when Kannan was trying to escape that place. Kannan expresses his love to her and Radhu laughs, not taking it seriously.

D. Gopi Prasad a.k.a. DGP (Joy Mathew)('D' represence Don as he was an underworld Don in Mumbai), is the father of Radha and he is a big bombay don dada who wants to hide his daughter from several enemies who seek revenge (Led by an unknown assassin later revealed to be the son of Ahuja (Sharat Saxena)- DGP's former boss and his biggest enemy- wanting to avenge his Father's and Sister's deaths just days before her wedding). Radhu and her grandparents don't like DGP as his ″profession″ is the cause for the death of Radhu's mother, Revathy (Anju Aravind). When Kannan gets more attracted to Radhu,she says that she loves him but due to her father and his high criminal background she will be unable to marry Kannan and if her father knows about this love, Kannan will be shot at sight. But Radhu says that if Kannan would be able to fight her father and marry her, she would be ready to go with him.

Kannan gets scared hearing this. But he doesn't want to lose Radhu. DGP orders Kannan to leave the house before the next morning. At night,when Kannan was sitting at the veranda of the outhouse,he notices someone trying to shoot Radhu and at nick of time, on an intention to prevent it from happening, there ensues a fight with the assassin (the son of Ahuja).
