Saravanan is a good Samaritan, who is soft-spoken and admired by one and all. He comes across Gayathri (Hansika Motwani), daughter of arrogant business woman Rajeshwari and falls for her. Coming to know of their affair, Rajeshwari decides to get them both married. Her ulterior motive is that she is keen on getting a son-in-law, who will always do what she wants and be under her control. But she is in for a shock when she comes to know that Saravanan has a past. He is a ruffian and is feared by one and all. Now she plans to halt all plans, while Saravanan takes up the challenge and ensures that he succeeds in marrying his lady love. It’s now a cat and mouse game between Saravanan and Rajeshwari. Then there is a young boy, Chinna (Vivek), with his own set of friends (including ‘Cell’ Murugan), who is desperately behind Gayathri and tries to win over her love.
