Embedded with intrigue and thrill, this action-oriented revenge drama delves into the fluctuating fortunes in the life of Velu and his friend, Pazhani. After growing up in a rural background, they arrive in the city looking for livelihood, naive and impoverished.
Velu finds work with Kailasa Mudaliyar, a wealthy building contractor, while Pazhani gets a job in a hotel, and soon becomes savvy to the ways of the city. Velu however, remains innocent and loyal to his employer, who deceives him into smuggling gold biscuits and has him thrown into prison for this crime.
Three years of rigourous imprisonment are enough to completely transform Velu into a cunning and calculative man, who vows vengeance upon Mudaliyar. Employing ingenious disguises and clever techniques, he challenges Mudaliyar at every instance to pit every member of his own family against him, and destroy him little by little. Will Velu succeed in exacting revenge against the wily Mudaliyar ?
