Bharath (Arulnithi) is a taxi driver who is in love with Suseela (Mahima Nambiar), a nurse. He is a fan of writer Vyjayanthi (Lakshmy Ramakrishnan). Once, she rides in his taxi and notices a man and his bike. She tells Bharath that her late husband had the same bike. When Suseela returns from a wedding in a cab, the driver misbehaves with her. Ganesh (Ajmal) saves her. When they meet again, Ganesh tries to pursue her inappropriately. Ganesh finds that Suseela is in love with Bharath and warns her to cut off all ties with Bharath. Suseela meets Bharath and tells all the problems Ganesh created, but they find her client Roopala (Chaya Singh) trying to drown herself. They save her, and she tells about her problems with her abusive husband Vasanth (John Vijay). Also, she inadvertently connected with Ganesh, who films her nude and blackmails her for money. Bharath notices that Ganesh owns the bike Vyjayanthi mentioned.
Retired businessman Murugesan (Anandaraj) loses money and jewels because of Ganesh. Ganesh is actually a conman who operates with Anitha (Vidya Pradeep) and Maya (Suja Varunee), and they cheat wealthy people and extort money from them. Murugesan follows Ganesh and finds his address with Narain Vaidyanathan’s (Aadukalam Naren) help. Bharath also finds Ganesh’s address and follows him to his house. Bharath spots Murugesan walking past him. A neighbor reports this to the police. When the police arrives to investigate, they learn that Maya is murdered in the house. Bharath is identified as a suspect. He assumes Murugesan is the killer, but the latter reveals he did not kill her. Later, Bharath looks for Vasanth and finds out he had an affair with Anitha. Ganesh filmed them together and blackmailed him for money. When Vasanth finds that Anitha was part of the scam, Ganesh beats him up.
When Ganesh blackmails Vasanth about his video with Anitha, he does not care about it. Ganesh blackmails him with Roopala’s nude video, and Vasanth gives money. Bharath follows Vasanth=, and a fight ensues where Anitha and Ganesh are killed. Bharath tells Vasanth that the entire plan to extort money from him was made by Roopala. She wanted to separate from Vasanth and get money from him, so she approached Anitha and Ganesh to help her make a video of Vasanth. Ganesh wanted to take the money for himself, so he and Anitha made a nude video of Roopala. Because of her inability to act against Vasanth and Ganesh, she tries to commit suicide. Meanwhile, Bharath, Murugesan, Narain, and Vasanth enter the crime scene and become suspects. Roopala and Vasanth are arrested, and Bharath marries Suseela.
A major twist arrives in Vyjayanthi. She calls Bharath, requesting his permission to write a book based on this event. She narrates a changed plot where Ganesh films Suseela nude and threatens her. When Bharath comes to know of this and Roopala’s video, he erases both videos. Maya comes to know that Ganesh is after Suseela, so she threatens him to split the shares and if he does not, she will tell Anitha about Suseela. When Bharath and Suseela go to Ganesh’s house, Maya dies. They erase the videos and leave the crime scene, and Bharath frames Ganesh for Maya’s murder.
In the present, Bharath requests Vyjayanthi to find an alternative. Later, he finds her murdered.
