Deepika (Bhavana) is an arrogant, rich girl. A medical college student, she dictates terms at the college. Sister of local don Kasi (Prakash Raj), she is feared by students, professors, and the college dean. Enters Aarya (Madhavan), a final-year student who comes to Chennai Medical College from Coimbatore. A soft-spoken Aarya runs into Deepika. They develop cold shoulders. In a fit of rage, she kidnaps Aarya’s sister, but Aarya faces her challenges daringly. However, she soon falls in love with him, but he is not ready to marry a ruffian’s sister. The remaining story tells us how the brother and sister put pressure on Aarya to become a rowdy so his status is equal enough as Kasi’s so Aarya can marry Deepika. Meanwhile, “Snake” Babu (Vadivelu) is elected the area councillor and has a few encounters with Aarya and one with Deepika.
