The abandoned at a refugee camp in Rameswaram, India and presumed to be an orphan is a beautiful young girl child. She gets noticed by noted Tamil author Thiruchelvan, who lives with his sister, Kamalee, her husband, and their son, and authors books under the pen-name of 'Indra', who is actually an attractive TV news-woman who lives next door. When he comes forward to adopt her, he is initially refused, as he must be married in order to adopt any child. He accordingly gets married to Indra, and they adopt the child and name her Amudha.
