Selva in his young age sees his paternal uncle, Velusaamy (Balaji Shaktivel), being stabbed by someone. His family is on their way to the temple for worship. Selva brings his father Bose Kaalai (Sarathkumar) and they all take him to admit in hospital. Bose Kaalai is infuriated that his enemies did this to prevent his elder brother to contest in elections. He goes to their home and kills two people who were the reason behind his brother's condition. The murder is witnessed by the young Baskaran, son of one of the killed by Bose Kaalai. Chandra (Raadhika Sarathkumar) is shocked on hearing her husband killed two people. Bose is arrested but he hopes that he can clear the charge and come out. His opponents win the elections out of sympathy votes and Bose Kaalai is jailed for 16 years. Chandra is disappointed by her husband's irresponsible behaviour and wishes that her son should not become like his father. She leaves her in-laws' family and moves to Chennai with her son Selva and daughter Mangai.
