A rich estate owner is killed by his second wife and her brother Aadimoolam (Radharavi). The estate owner's son Raja (Rajnikanth) returns from the USA and learns of this. In order to bring the culprits to book, he makes his friend Sethupati (Janakraj), a rickshaw puller, act as Raja. But soon, Aadimoolam learns of this and kills Sethu and frames Raja for the murder. Raja is sentenced to death. In the same village where Raja lives, there exists his lookalike, Chinnaraasu (Rajnikanth again), whose aim in life is to wed his sweetheart Lakshmi (Nadia). Raja escapes from jail and meets Chinnaraasu and makes Chinnaraasu take his place in jail.

Trivia:
This movie was a blockbuster and completed a 200 day run in theatres.

Rajinikanth played a dual role to perfection in this movie, ensuring its phenomenal commercial success and adding another feather to his already illustrious career.

Incidentally, this was the last time Radha and Nadiya had the opportunity to collaborate with superstar Rajinikanth.

Initially, Revathi and Rubini were offered the lead female roles, but when they dropped out due to date clashes, Revathi's role was offered to Radha and Rubini's role to Nadiya. This movie also became the last opportunity for Radha and Nadiya to act with Rajinikanth.
