Anand (Jai) is a young, carefree man from Salem who comes to Chennai to stay with his TV journalist friend Chandru (Santhanam) to pursue his dream to become an actor with the help from his newly-found girlfriend Divya (Priya Anand) and Chandru.
Meanwhile, Minister Viduthalai (Delhi Ganesh), who was touted to become the next chief minister, is killed by Minister Anbu Chezhiyan (Sampath Raj), which accidentally gets recorded on tape of an ad film director named Vinoth.
Soon, Anand befriends a famous model named Pooja (Lakshmi Rai), who is also a friend of Vinoth. Vinoth and Lakshmi see the video of the murder and inform the joint commissioner Kailasam (Thalaivasal Vijay), who they come to know is also a hand-in-glove in the murder. Kailasam sends some goons to get the tape, and Vinoth evades. After a long chase, Vinoth gets killed in the train where Anand and Divya were travelling. Anand, having witnessed the murder, places the tape into Divya's bag, which she misses in the train. Anand then develops a friendship with her after this.
Anand, in an urge to become an actor, observes the character of people with a strange attitude. One such person is John Vijay (Rahman). Anand joins John, who, in turn, promises to make him an actor. John takes Anand to a stranger's home and does things as if they were thieves. One such house was that of Pooja, where they go and get information regarding her. On that eve, Anand befriends Pooja when he saves her when she was laid in a pool of blood after being attacked by goons. She helps him become an actor and asks for some photos of his to get him a chance. When Anand goes to Pooja's home, he finds her dead and is put to blame as he was the one present.
At last, it is known that John has used Anand and had also committed this cold-blooded murder. However, Kailasam is after Anand and the tape, and finally, Anand reminds himself that the tape was accidentally put in Divya's handbag in the train at the scene of Vinoth's murder. Anand immediately goes to Divya's house and is mistaken by Divya and her mother (Urvashi). He explains to them that Vinoth and Pooja were killed because of Viduthalai's murder getting recorded on their tape, which accidentally ended up in Divya's handbag at the scene of Vinoth's murder. Both Divya and her mother now realize that Anand is really innocent when Divya gives Anand the tape, which eventually falls into the right hands, that of Gopi (Gopinath), Vinoth and Pooja's media friend, who obtains and publicizes it.
In the end, John, Anbu Chezhiyan, and Kailasam are all killed, and Anand has become a real-life hero instead of an acting hero.
