The story revolves around an ego clash between father and son. Pulippandi (Sundar C) is a local rowdy and the son of a math teacher Vedhukannu (Prakash Raj). Vedhukannu hates Puli for being a rowdy and not being proficient in math. As part of a flashback, it is shown that young Puli was very good in physics, but his father, being a math teacher, wanted him to excel in math, which he was unable to do. As a result of repeated physical and mental abuse, Puli takes the wrong route to grow up. In the meantime, rival gangs and police try to kill him, but he is accidentally saved by his half-sister, a daughter from an affair that his father had. Puli helps his half-sister in return for her unexpected help and vouches for her safety. The rival gangs kill her and put the blame on his father. How Puli brings the truth to light and unites with his family completes the rest of the movie.

Sify wrote "On the whole Veerappu, is a clean family entertainer with a nice message, worth a look." Behindwoods wrote "Debutant director Badri, has nothing new to offer for the paying public and the screenplay runs in a set predictable path. Some twists and turns in the storyline could have helped in a big way." Rediff wrote "The yarn has been 'commercially treated' to suit Tamil sensibilities one would be led to believe. Save for the fast paced moments towards the climax and the punctuations of stunt scenes, the result is slow and too pat." Thiraipadam wrote "the film, inspite of unimpressive casting, passes muster."
Veerappu was a commercial success grossing $2 million at the box office.
