PlotEdit

Manickam (Jeevan), belongs to a poor family in a village. He does not respect any of his family members, except for his uncle Manohar (Vinod Raj), who lives in Chennai. The story gets rolling once he decides to come and stay with Manohar at Chennai. Once, while Manickam is watching people playing golf, he notices Roopini (Malavika) and Ramesh (Abbas) having an illicit relationship. He manages to capture the scene in his video camera. Roopini is the wife of a rich businessman named Sivaraj (Manoj K. Jayan), who is Ramesh's best friend. Manickam blackmails Roopini and extracts money from her whenever he needs. Once, he makes a trip abroad to Australia with Roopini’s expenditure. There, he happens to meet Rosy (Sonia Agarwal). He falls in love with her. Rosy tells him that she is a very rich girl from a respected family. While he decides to propose to her, he finds that she has left the city. He is upset, and just at that time, Roopini makes a phone call and tells him that Rosy was sent by her only to woo Manickam and demands that if he needs Rosy, he needs to hand over the cassette to her. Manickam decides to find Rosy and comes to know that she also loves him. She asks him to leave this con work and gets him a job in a shop. All went well until when Rosy's stepmother comes to know about this relationship and asks Manickam for a sum if he wants to marry Rosy. To acquire the same, he again uses the cassette for the final time, but Sivaraj comes to know about it. Manickam hands over the money to Rosy's stepmother and asks Rosy to come to the airport next day. The climax shows Sivaraj killing Ramesh and Manickam fighting the goons sent by Sivaraj and reaching the airport, somehow only to be killed by Sivaraj. The film ends with Rosy waiting for Manickam in the airport.
