Despite the initial hesitation, Mini eventually reciprocates his feelings, and they both fall in love.

However, their love is not accepted by their families or society, and they face numerous obstacles in their journey to be together. Jeeva's father objects to their relationship, citing caste differences, and tries to forcefully separate them. Meanwhile, Mini's mother is also against their love and arranges for her daughter's marriage with someone from their own caste.

As they become aware of the growing tension between their families, Jeeva and Mini decide to elope and get married secretly. However, they soon realize that their problems are not over, as their family's opposition only increases.
