Nandagopal goes there to sell the property in order to overcome their financial difficulties. But it's not easy to sell the bungalow because Nachiappa Gounder, the villain, refuses to vacate the house. Meanwhile, Nandu falls in love with Chembakam. This matter creates other problems. Nandu's friends decide to bring his mother and sister to stay in the house. When Madhavi comes and sees the house, she is shocked. For there is a story from the past that she remembers and that Nandagopal doesn't know. Finally Nandhu realises that Gounder's cruelty towards his family was only a part of enmity with roots in the past. The rest of the movie is about how Nandagopal confronts Nachiappa Gounder.
