Ganesh (Vijay) is a college graduate who lives with his father Chandrasekhar (Raghuvaran), a doctor. Chandrasekhar is easygoing and pampers Ganesh with whatever he wants. Sandhya (Suvalakshmi) is the daughter of a very strict police officer Vasudevan (Rajan P. Dev), who is always suspicious that she would have a love affair. Sandhya makes up her mind that she would never fall in love, and her ambition is to get a gold medal in her college degree. One day, Ganesh spots Sandhya and falls in love with her at first sight. Even though Sandhya catches a good glimpse of him, she tells her friend Fathima that she likes no one. Ganesh goes to the bus stop everyday to see Sandhya. He tries to get advice from his friends Ravi (Sriman) and Peter (Karan) to convince Sandhya to marry him. Their advice goes in vain as she does not care about him. She confronts Ganesh one day and tells him not to waste his time on her.
