They have a reason to celebrate, as one of them, Anbu (Mithun Maheswaran) is about to be engaged to his girlfriend Tamizhini (Meghana Ellen) who happens to be the daughter of a police officer (Sayaji Shinde). But they wake up the next morning with no recollection of what had happened during the previous night. And they realise that there is a dead girl in their flat.
