Raja, a clever student, challenges Rekha, a rich and arrogant girl, to become the number one student. She loses her challenge but she falls in love with Raja. David, a former student, is now an alcoholic. During his college days, he fell in love with Esther but Shanthi was in love with David. Michael, Esther's father, was against their love so he beat David to death and Esther then committed suicide. Later, David survived. David decides to help the young lovers and to fight against the heartless Michael.
Though Robert–Rajasekar wanted newcomers for the film, they yielded to the producer's wish to cast an established actor. R. Sarathkumar originally had a role, but was replaced by Prabhu.
