Raghunandan is a writer who is struggling to make ends meet. He is in love with his childhood friend Vishnu (Priyamani), who is a school teacher. However, she is already engaged to the village head’s son.

Raghunandan is heartbroken, and one day he meets Janani (Amarasigamani), a young and beautiful woman who comes to his village as a teacher. Janani and Raghunandan hit it off, and the two start spending time together. They fall in love, and Raghunandan starts to forget about Vishnu.

However, things start to take a turn for the worse when Vishnu’s father opposes her marriage to the village head’s son. Vishnu’s father tries to force her to marry Raghunandan, but she refuses. This creates a rift between Vishnu and Raghunandan.

Just when things start to settle down, Janani reveals that she has a dark past. She was previously married to an abusive man who used to torture her. She was forced to leave her husband after he sold her off to a brothel. This revelation shocks Raghunandan, who is unable to digest the fact that the woman he loves has gone through something so traumatic.
