Bold and brazen, this complex relationship drama delves into the interwoven lives of four people – Prabhu, Murali, Padma and Jayanthi. Prabhu is a handsome and talented young man working as a general manager in Murali's marketing company. As an orphan, he was adopted by Murali's mother and is treated by him more like a sibling than a friend. Jayanthi is a young widow working at Murali's company and Padma is her relative, a college student who often visits the office. Padma and Prabhu are in love, but unaware of this, Murali also developed a romantic interest in Padma. As Padma and Jayanthi are always together Prabhu gets to spend time with both of them, but is interested only in Padma. However, the young widow, Jayanthi feels sexually attracted towards Prabhu and is unable to control her needs. When she makes an advance towards Prabhu, he is equally unable to control his desire. Later both of them feel guilty about their actions and hide it from Padma by trying to avoid each other. How will this convoluted love quadrangle unfold? How will Padma react when she comes to know of the affair between Prabhu and Jayanthi? How will the close relationship between Prabhu and Murali be affected by Murali's advances towards Padma?
