The film narrates the tale of a Madras city-based businessman (R. Balasubramaniam) in whose printing press T. R. Ramachandran works as an office boy. Fortune favours him, and he becomes a rich man and is hated by the son of the printing press, the villain (T.K. Ramachandran) who vows to destroy the new rich man and take away his wealth. Kumar (Narasimha Bharathi) is a popular medical practitioner of the city and a do-gooder. The villain’s sister Nalini (P.K.
