The film opens with a flashback showing the family feud between the families of Sundaralingam Prabhakaran (Vijayakanth) and Bhavani Easwaramurthy (Indraja). Prabhakaran and Bhavani are in love. The murder of Bhavani's father Easwaramurthy (Rajeev) is wrongly accused on SP's father Sundaralingam (Lal). Prabhakaran starts to help Bhavani's family and mortgages his own house to finance her factory with the intention of making it up to them as he still believes that it is his father who killed Bhavani's father. However, Bhavani is now trying to take revenge for her father's murder. SP's mother is now on her deathbed. While in the hospital, his mother tells how his father had a different wife and he should ask them forgiveness. Prabhakaran storms into Bhavani's house and accuses her uncle (who really killed Bhavani's father), also trying to make her understand the truth, but she does not believe him. Then, Prabhakaran says that he does not love her anymore and vows that he will never trust a woman by remaining a chronic bachelor forever.
