Guna (Prabhu Ganesan), a talented poet and saxophone player, and Siva (Ramesh Aravind), a brilliant singer with a soulful voice, are brothers who own an orchestra. Their team performances are extremely popular and famous in the area. Anjali, a dance choreographer moves in next door and both brothers find themselves deeply attracted to her. She is impressed with Guna's talent with the saxophone as well as magical ability with words, but is under the mistaken impression that it is Siva who is the poet and player of the saxophone. This wrongful notion is fostered by Siva himself, who is madly in love with Anjali, and desperate to win over her love. This turns out to be a recipe for disaster, causing a great deal of pain and suffering for all three. Will Anjali ever get to know the true identity of her love? Will the brothers be able to salvage their relationship after this misunderstanding? Will Anjali and Guna ever consummate their love, and how will Siva react?

Trivia:
Actress Saritha dubbed for Meenakshi Sheshadri.

This is a film in which Meenakshi Sheshadri, a Tamilian who acted in Bollywood, starred in a Tamil movie after a long gap and the film has a tag line which goes "My Fair Lady".

This is the first film of actor Prakash Raj in Tamil. In remembrance, he named his production house Duet Movies.

The film introduced Kadri Gopalnath into Commercial movies and the film's theme music was fully composed using saxophone. Although there is a general misconception that all the saxophone instrumental pieces in the movie were performed by Padma Shri Kadri Gopalnath, the truth is that he only rendered the title music, while all the other saxophone parts in the movie has been performed by Raju.

On Director Priyadarshan's request AR Rahman remade the song "Anjali Anjali" in the Bollywood film "Kabhi Na Kabhi" starring Pooja Bhatt and Anil Kapoor. Original song in Tamil was sung by SP Balasubramaniam and the Hindi version by Kumar Sanu.

The movie is based on the French play "Cyrano de Bergerac" by Edmond Rostand.
