A criminal gang uses one of its female members (Vijayanirmala) to lure the hero into its control. Eventually she falls in love with her target and proves to be his only true friend. The fast-paced movie is noted for its racy script, although Vijayanirmala claimed it as an art-house movie since she wore the same costume throughout.
