Witty and wise, this multi-layered romantic comedy traces the twists and turns in the lives of three people whose lives are interwoven by destiny. Madhan is deeply in love with actress Ambujakshi but he always suspects her, which eventually ends in quarrels. When Ambujakshi goes abroad (Paris) to enjoy her vacation, Madhan gets irritated and approaches private detective, Mannar to spy on her.
Mannar accepts the job on one condition: Madhan has to take care of the medical expenses of Rajan (Ramesh Arvind), his close friend who has been diagnosed with cancer. Meanwhile, Deepa also goes to Paris with her children. And with that, a hilarious and complex sequence of events gets triggered, but will the final consequence be something to laugh about?
