It is considered one of the greatest films in Tamil cinema history and won several awards, including the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Tamil. The film revolves around two friends, Raju (Gemini Ganesan) and Mohan (Shivaji Ganesan), who are struggling to make ends meet. They live in a small village in Tamil Nadu and work as manual laborers. Raju has a wife (Savitri) and two children, while Mohan is unmarried.

One day, Raju and Mohan get involved in a protest against their employer, who refuses to pay them their rightful wages. During the protest, Raju accidentally kills the employer and both friends flee the village to avoid arrest. They seek refuge in a neighboring village and find work at a rich man's house.

As time passes, Raju becomes more and more paranoid about being caught and punished for the crime. He begins to distance himself from his family and friends, including Mohan. Meanwhile, Mohan falls in love with the rich man's daughter, Meena (Savitri), but their relationship is frowned upon because of their different social status.
