Perumal (Rajan P. Dev), a corrupt police officer, is transferred to the same area after 20 years.

In the past, Perumal's wife died during her delivery and Perumal felt that his newborn son brought him bad luck. Perumal later married Saraswathi (Vennira Aadai Nirmala). Despite being a clever student, Raja was hated by his father while his stepmother Saraswathi took care of him like her own son. One day, Raja witnessed his father Perumal taking bribe from a woman. He stole the bribe from his father and put it in a temple donation box. To punish him, Perumal sent his innocent son to jail.

Raja (Parthiban) is now a rickshaw man and also a rowdy who cannot tolerate the injustice so he often goes to jail. Meanwhile, Maari (Jojan), a rich industrialist, and his henchman Kaasi (Majid) kidnap the children of rich businessmen and ransom them. A journalist is determined to stop this and hires Raja for protecting his daughter Meena (Rachana Banerjee) from Alex's henchmen. Soon, Raja clashes with Maari, Kaasi and his father Perumal.

The film opened to positive reviews from critics. [4] Geocities wrote "The strength and the weakness of the movie is its story itself. Though the core story is very interesting, it is also unbeleivable sometimes. This could have been avoided by good screenplay and direction. But apparently director P.Vasu has spent most of his time in masala things." [5]
