Embedded with intense action and charged emotions, this suspenseful drama delves into the trials and triumphs in the life of Ganesh, an intelligent and savvy lawyer. As he foils several plots and plans made by criminal elements, he earns several enemies, but bravely battles and outmanoeuvres them. When he gets a call for assistance from Priya, a famous and wealthy actress, Ganesh is intrigued enough to investigate. He finds that contrary to her screen persona, the real Priya is a fragile young woman imprisoned by circumstances and so afraid that she desperately seeks a trustworthy protector. When an impoverished and naive Kali arrived at the door of a renowned movie producer, Janardhanan along with his young niece, Senkamalam, the producer saw the potential in her and transformed her into Priya, a stylish and sophisticated actress. However, the producer then begins controlling Priya and swindling large chunks of money. Will Ganesh accept the assignment of protecting Priya from the various dangers that surround her? Can he succeed in securing her safety and bring to justice the culprits who greedily hunt her like vultures?
