This information was known by an archaeologist, who plans to steal it due to its monetary value. Presently, Gemini Ganesan is charged with the care of the sword.

The villain plans to send Raja to do this job. He enters into the palace as the son (who ran off from the family in his childhood) of Kumarasamy, Gemini Ganesan's son-in-law. Initially, everything goes smoothly. However, Indhu, Gemini Ganesan's granddaughter, falls in love with Raja. The situation called for Raja to marry her.
