The King of Mullai Nadu is dominated by his Raja guru (head priest) (M. N. Nambiar). The guru wants his son Parthiban (S. A. Natarajan) to be appointed as the General of the army. But the King appoints Veera Mohan (MGR) instead. The enraged Parthiban becomes a bandit and starts raiding the countryside. Parthiban lives in the kingdom during the daytime and loots merchants and passengers who pass by in groups, in the road during nighttime or at times when no people from Mullai Nadu frequent the roads. He wants to marry the princess Jeevarekha (G. Shakuntala), who is in love with Veera Mohan. Parthiban sends a message to Jeevarekha to meet him secretly. The message is delivered by mistake to the minister's daughter Amudhavalli (Madhuri Devi) and she goes to meet Parthiban. Parthiban and Amudhavalli fall in love. Parthiban just uses Amudhavali for his pleasure. Meanwhile, the king sends his general Veeramohan to capture the bandits plaguing the countryside. Veeramohan captures Parthiban and produces him in the royal court. The Raja guru is enraged and tries to get his son off by various means. He demands a trial for his son in front of the Goddess. During the trial, Amudhavalli hides behind the Goddess statue and pronounces Parthiban as innocent. The minister, who is Amudhavalli's father believes that the statue of goddess spoke to him and announced that Parthiban is innocent. The King never takes decisions on his own, but consults both Raja guru and the Minister. The King, thus believing that the Goddess had spoken, releases Parthiban and exiles Veeramohan. Parthiban and Amudhavalli are happily married. Jeevarekha runs away from the kingdom to be with Veera Mohan in his exile period.

Amudhavalli, after catching Parthiban red-handed in bandit's den, decides to take Jeevanrekha to the kingdom. To escape from the nuisance of Amudhavalli, Parthiban decides to kill her. He tricks her into going with him to a cliff edge, he even speaks to her romantically and sings a song and then tells her of his intention to kill her and discloses that his father also plans to kill the King the same day.
