The reporter Revathi (Revathi) comes to a village in search of interesting village true stories. She later comes to know that a woman called Thamizhselvi (Ranjitha) has not left her house for seven years. When Revathi meet her, Thamizhselvi tells her sad past.
In the past, Rasayya (Napoleon) was a short-tempered man and the son of the village chief Periyasamy Gounder (Vijayakumar) while Undrayar Gounder (Mohan Natarajan) was a heartless rich villager. Both often clashed and fought. Some contrived situations made the villagers believed that the innocent Rasayya was a womaniser. Thereafter, Rasayya fell in love with Thamizhselvi who was from the nearby village and they eventually got married. Thamizhselvi first thought that Rasayya was also a womaniser, so Rasayya proved her the contrary. One day, Undrayar Gounder tried to rape Thamizhselvi but she killed him. Rasayya surrendered for the murder and he was sentenced to the capital punishment.
