Summary & Details
The film begins with Murugesan (Bharath) limping sorrowfully from the Central Jail, Palayamkottai, in a scruffy beard and glasses. He has been imprisoned for 17 years. The film flashes back to 1989, where Murugesan is an unruly youngster in Sivasaila. He is the son of flower sellers (Rajesh and Yuvasri), with Thapaal Thangavelu (Vadivelu), who provides as much laughter as the posts he delivers. Life is a long, sunny adventure for Murugesan, who beats people up, sells his grandfather's land, runs over rooftops, and incurs so much of his father's wrath that he is prophesied to meet a horrible end. Not that this gloomy prospect affects him - he continues on his own sweet way until he runs into Parijatham (Poonam Bajwa), a demure, fair-complexioned, striking Iyer girl, the daughter of Panjami Iyer (Y. G. Mahendran) and the younger sister of Gayathri (Simran). In the meantime, the village's bigwig Periyavar (Sampath Raj), who is magnanimous in public and a tyrant at home, casts his eyes on Parijatham. He places his pawns carefully and is afraid of being found out. Parijatham is trapped, and Periyavar starts removing her dresses. He and Murugesan come close to breaking each other's bones many times, but the situations defuse themselves in a perfectly natural fashion. Several twists in the tale occur in a quick fashion, and Murugesan and Parijatham are bound in a net from which, seemingly, there is no escape.
