It is the Tamil remake of the 1997 Telugu movie Pelli, which itself was based on the 1980 Malayalam movie Manjil Virinja Pookkal and Julia Roberts starrer Sleeping With The Enemy. The film featured Ajith Kumar and Simran in the lead roles, Sujatha, and Babloo Prithiveeraj and in other significant roles. This film became a commercial success.
Jeeva (Ajith Kumar) lives with his grandmother Lakshmi (Radha Bhai) in Madurai and says that he would marry the girl that he likes at first sight. He goes to Chennai after getting a job as a bank manager there. In a shopping mall, he gets a glimpse of Divya (Simran) and falls in love with her. He identifies her scooter model and goes on a mission in search of her to end up in a colony surrounded by comedians - Dhandabani (Goundamani), Michael Jackson (Senthil), Major Ramachandran (Venniradai Moorthy), Savithri (Kovai Sarala), and James Thomson (Dhamu). The colony people mistakenly think that Jeeva is trying to steal the scooter, and therefore, he lied that he was looking for a house to rent. Then, he agreed to stay in the colony after confirming that Divya and her mother Janaki (Sujatha) are residing in the colony.
