The estate owner adopts Vishnu as his son. Meanwhile, Vishnu falls in love with Radha (Sanghavi). Everything goes fine for Vishnu until his adopted father Rajamanikkam (Thalaivasal Vijay) shows a photograph and asks him to kill the person in the photo if he really wants to prove the affection he has for him. The man gives the reason that he wants them killed because he murdered his son. Vishnu agrees immediately but is shocked to see that Thangadurai is in the photo.
