Embittered and angry against society, Muthuveeran kidnaps at random of a meeting, in a park of Saigon, Soundharam (M. G. Ramachandran), the unique heir of the billionaire Selvaragham (M. G. Ramachandran), then baptizes him of the first name of Pandhiya and the pupil as his own son in India, in the mountains, where he is, at the moment, at the head of a community compound of bandits and their family, living outside the system. The disappearance of the son arouses greed at the close relation of the fantastically wealthy father.
So, Kumar (R. S. Manohar), the Kanagamaligai Estates’s manager, in the Tamil Country, (belonging to the late Selvaragham) and his father, in Saïgon, plans to become a false Soundharam.
Meanwhile, adult, Pandhiya learns by Muthuveeran his real origins. By a terrible combination of circumstances, false Soundharam falls in a trap led by Velaiya (M. N. Nambiar), a strong head (from Muthuveeran’s group) and stabs him fatally. The latter reviled in the arms of Pandhiya revealing him the black intentions of Kumar, and by confiding a bag filled with proofs.
Now, accused hastily of the murder, by a diligent policeman, Chezhiyan (S. A. Ashokan), Pandhiya decides in his turn, to put on the role of Soundharam, to save from the claws of Kumar, his maternal uncle Kanagarathinam (Sethupathi) and his daughter Mala (K. R. Vijaya), with whom he has to get married. But Pandhiya already loves another woman, beautiful Kannagi (B. Saroja Devi) and mutually!
But above everything, he has to, for people his of the mountain, to take out them of the obscurity, to look for leniency of the justice, to give them a better life, a new future!
At the moment, the “prodigal son” is faced with a sum of problems. As he summarizes it so well in front his father’s portrait:
…You’ve passed away making me the heir for many lakhs of property! I’m the billionaire Soundharam and Pandhiya, who is blamed for the murder! I’m the lover of Kannagi and an engaged groom for Mala! God! I’d correct my brothers who are in the dark and give them life! On another side, I’d save this family from the hands of this tricky Manager! What should I do Dad?…
