PlotEdit

Thamarai (Chytra Hallikeri) is a modern girl who likes teasing men with her four friends. Jayanth (Jayanth), a bold young man, with his parents move into their new house. That day, Jayanth encounters Thamarai and her gang, the girls try to haze him but they fail and in return, Jayanth teases the girls. Impressed by his boldness, four young men who were before teased by Thamarai's gang befriend with him. Thereafter, Sriram (K. Prabakaran), in a hurry to catch his flight, accidentally splashed Jayanth with his luxury car and soiled Jayanth's shirt. Jayanth then taunted Sriram and Sriram was forced to buy him a new shirt, thus he missed his flight.

After several attempts at ragging each other, Jayanth and Thamarai eventually fall in love. To Jayanth's surprise, Thamarai turns out to be Sriram's daughter. Sriram is a successful businessman who wants his daughter to get married to a NRI groom. Thamarai persuades Jayanth to reconcile with her father but Sriram, who has a big ego, challenges Jayanth to get married to his daughter before he left for abroad. Sriram manipulates situations to show Jayanth in a bad light but Thamarai doesn't fall into that trap and later realises the truth. The cold war between Jayanth and Sriram culminates, and Sriram arranges to get her married to Prakash (Ramji), an advertising producer who had several relationships with his models including Suganthi (Suganthi) and he wants to become rich at any cost. The day of the marriage, Thamarai shaves her head and Thamarai reveals Prakash's true colours to her father, thus the wedding is cancelled. Sriram then realises that he made a mistake, and he allows his daughter Thamarai to get married to her lover Jayanth.

ReceptionEdit

Balaji Balasubramaniam of bbthots.com stating, "With a flimsy story and unimaginative handling, the director here definitely does not earn a "Well Done" from the viewer".[8] Malini Mannath said, "Debutant Jayant fits in well in the hero mould. Chaitra makes her debut in Tamil, and has the looks and attitude for the role. Prabhakaran makes a fitting villain of the piece".[9]
