Krishna is an intellectually disabled man and has the mental ability of a five-year-old. He lives a peaceful life in the hill station of Ooty. He is cared for by Victor, the owner of a chocolate factory where Krishna works. One day, he excitedly announces to the village that he will become a father. That night, his daughter is born, but his wife Banumathy dies during childbirth.

Unable to grasp the concept of death, Krishna simply accepts that Banumathy has "gone to God" and starts life as a father. He names his daughter Nila and raises her with love and care. She soon grows into a happy young girl. With the help of Victor and his other mentally disabled friends, Krishna enrolls Nila in school where she adjusts herself to school life and befriends the correspondent Shwetha Rajendran, who develops a maternal bond with her.

When she sees Nila with Krishna and learns that Nila is his daughter, she recognizes Krishna from a photo that her sister had shown of her lover. She realizes that Nila is her niece. Shwetha refuses to let Nila stay with Krishna as she is scared that he might unintentionally hurt her. Soon, a scuffle ensues between Krishna and Shwetha's fiancé Karthik.

It is broken up by Shwetha's father Rajendran, who reveals that his other daughter was Banumathy, who became estranged from him upon choosing to marry Krishna. He offers to take Krishna and Nila with him and claims that they are part of his family. Victor agrees and sends them with Rajendran. At a distance from Chennai, Rajendran tricks Krishna into exiting the car and abandons him.

Distraught, Krishna wanders around the city asking passersby where Nila is. He eventually arrives at a court, where he meets lawyer Vinod, who assumes that Krishna is a rich person and promises him that his boss will defend him. He introduces him to his boss, Anuradha Ragunathan, who is hesitant to take up the case as she believes Krishna to be a lunatic, but Victor arrives and explains Krishna's predicament, which makes Anu to help Krishna and takes up the case.

Anu files a case against Rajendran but loses hope when she learns that Rajendran's lawyer is Bashyam, a feared senior lawyer who has never lost a case. The case is then heard in the high court, with both parties arguing to the child's custody. Finally, Bashyam asks Krishna about how he can raise his daughter and support her financially.

After a quick show of father-daughter connection and affection, Bashyam withdraws the case voluntarily, thereby giving the custody of Nila to Krishna, and leaves the court. After spending some time with his daughter, Krishna takes her back to Shwetha so that she can have financial stability and that she can become a doctor when she grows up. Later, Krishna returns to work at Victor's chocolate factory.
