Vishwa (Suriya) and Nilani (Preetha Vijayakumar) fall in love. Her mother does not approve, but she goes along with it. Complications arise when Vishwa exhibits "fashion" photos that he has taken of Nilani, which further upsets her mother. Then it comes to light that Surya's father Santhosh (Prakash Raj) had an affair, and things take a dramatic, tragic turn for the lovers. In the end, both families arrive at the airport to prevent Nilani from boarding the flight, but to their bad luck, they could not stop it. Nilani commits suicide by swallowing poison from her ring, and Vishwa, who gets hit by a wall, turns mentally challenged with the behavior of a child.
