Bhaskar (Srikanth) and Archana (Gopika) are childhood friends who grew up in the same village. Bhaskar receives a marriage invitation card from Archana. Only then does he realizes his love for her, but he still decides to attend the marriage. The day before the marriage, Archana finds out that her fiancé is not a good man and decides to call off the wedding. Her mother (Vanitha Krishnachandran) helps her escape with Bhaskar. The couple begins to live in a small house owned by Sivaramakrishnan (Vivek). Bhaskar, a research scholar in chemistry, succeeds in coming out with a prototype of a desalination plant which he wants to give to the government and solve a water crisis. He gets discouraged by the government authorities and State Minister. Because of this, he decides to set up his own desalination plant based on the methods of his research. Along with Archana, he runs from pillar to post for a loan. Bhaskar is hesitant to express his love towards Archana as she may misinterpret his intentions for helping her, but she soon realizes his love for her.

Madhan (Prithviraj) is a college mate of Archana. He gets acquainted with their family. Coming to know of their troubles, the rich Madhan volunteers to help them and lends money. However, Madhan is a '"business consultant" who lends money to companies, corporates, and individuals at exorbitant rates of interest and uses his might to recover them. In Bhaskar's case, he fakes the bond papers that Bhaskar has signed and begins to trouble them, demanding his money back and threatening to take over Bhaskar's research works with which he aspires to make a huge sum. When everything goes out of hand for Madhan, he sets a bomb in Bhaskar's research plant, but Bhaskar thwarts the plan. The video records that Bhaskar had recovered earlier from Madhan's office showing his cruel side was released to the press, and an arrest warrant was issued for him. The film ends with Bhaskar getting recognized for his research work, while Madhan was shown roaming aimlessly around like a mentally affected person.
