This intense family-oriented drama revolves around the struggles and upheavals in a family. An ordinary man Dharmalingam (the elder Kamal Haasan) vacationing in Ooty with his family, is framed for murder by a criminal named Chelladurai (R.S Manohar) and imprisoned for several years. His wife, son Mohan (the younger Kamal Haasan) and daughter (Seema) are shattered and scattered by the ensuing chaos and end up permanently separated from each other. Several years later, the vengeful Dharmalingam returns to confront Chelladurai, as the secretive Sankarlal and also desperately is on the lookout for his lost family. Chelladurai has meanwhile kidnapped Hema (Sridevi) for ransom and Mohan is deputed by Hema's father to rescue her.
