The film was directed by Mithran Jawahar, produced by Mohan Apparao and T Ramesh under the banner of Balaji Studios. The supporting cast of the film includes Vivek, K Bhagyaraj, and Karunas. The story revolves around Siva (Dhanush), a lazy guy who is not interested in any work and loves to spend time with his friends. Due to his carefree attitude, his father Chinnathambi (Bhagyaraj) decides to get him married to a responsible girl. Meanwhile, Pooja (Genelia D'Souza), a hardworking young woman who works as a nurse, falls in love with Siva. However, due to his laziness, Siva initially rejects her proposal.

One day, Siva receives a letter from his father, who is in America, stating that he will be arriving in India soon to meet his son's wife. With no choice left, Siva decides to go to Pooja's house and request her to act as his wife in front of his father until he leaves India. After much persuasion, Pooja agrees, and they start living together as a married couple.

Things start to become complicated when Siva's father decides to get them a house as a gift, and they both have to act as a happily married couple in front of society. They face various challenges and difficulties, but their love story takes a turn when Pooja takes care of Siva's father when he falls critically ill.

The film has excellent music composed by Vijay Antony, which becomes one of the main highlights of the movie. The songs 'Ussumu Laresay' and 'En Nenju' became big hits, and the choreography of the songs remains impressive.
