At the club, he realises, Sindhu drinks alcohol, swears freely and is a complete party girl. He comes to know of the surprising fact that Sindhu doesn’t know her own birthday because nobody except her mom knew it and her mom died when she was very young. Over time they become good friends and Sree falls head over heels in love with her.
One day the duo get stuck in an elevator and end up kissing instinctively. Sindhu brings Sree home and they have sex after which Sree confesses his love for Sindhu. To his shock, she rejects him saying that they are only good friends and insists that she does not love him. She refers to their sex as a casual indulgence whereupon Sree leaves her house in complete disgust. Sindhu constantly tries to pacify him and Sree finally gives in, agreeing to continue being friends with her and begin to hang out like before. At a party, Sindhu tries to get intimate with a drunk Sree but he gets upset and shouts at her for merely using him and criticizes her character. He also reveals to everyone that he had sex with Sindhu, making her angry. Sindhu confesses that now she also loves Sree but is disheartened by his behavior and mindset, thus ending the party on an unpleasant note.
Sree seeks the help of the local tailor Thangaraj and his colleague Satish and attempts to reconcile with Sindhu. He joins the dance classes conducted by Sindhu’s father and eventually they patch up. As per Sindhu’s wish they decide to begin a live in relationship without the knowledge of Sree’s parents since they would clearly disapprove of the idea. Sree makes a plan for his daily routine, to keep his parents oblivious of his relationship and moves into a rented house near his home with Sindhu. While Sindhu starts becoming slightly aggressive, Sree continues to steer the boat of their relationship. One night, when Sindhu is moody and irksome, Sree takes her out and reveals to her that it is her birthday and tells her that he had traced it out after a lot of difficulty. Sindhu is extremely touched and her aggressiveness comes to an end.
Sree constantly tries to talk Sindhu into agreeing for their marriage but she sternly refuses since she wants to achieve her dream of opening a restaurant in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Sree’s mother is hell bent on finding a good bride for him which puts Sree in a complete dilemma. Sindhu’s father invites the couple for his dance show but Sree’s mother falls sick and he comes in late for the show, making Sindhu upset. At the show, he pesters her about their marriage citing his mother’s ill health as his imminent reason to get married soon. When Sindhu refuses to budge, he decides to break up with her for his mother’s sake and get married to a girl, that his parents fix an alliance with.
A day before his marriage, Sindhu turns up at his home to bid him goodbye before leaving Chennai. The two part with heavy hearts. On the day of his wedding, while Sindhu’s dad is driving her to the airport he confesses about how he did not acknowledge Sindhu’s mother’s love for him and how he regretted it after she died and asks Sindhu not to make the same mistake. Suddenly Sindhu realises she has to stop the marriage and rushes back to Sree’s wedding avenue only to realize that the wedding is over and she turns to leave in tears.
