Powerful and poignant, this exquisitely crafted drama revolves around the twists and turns in the life of the short- tempered Kali (Rajnikant), who is a worker at a power station and possessively protects his sister Valli (Shobha).
In a clash with the new engineer, Kumaran (Babu), he is fired, gets drunk and loses his hand in an accident. Encouraged by Kali’s wife Manga (Jayalakshmi), Kumaran forms a relationship with Kali’s sister and Kali eventually matures enough to realise he cannot monopolise her for ever.
