Thirumurthy and Gurumurthy are two brothers in Thoothukudi, with Thirumurthy, being sensitive to violence, in contrast to Gurumurthy, who is brave and clever. Whenever Thirumurthy is thrashed by anyone, he sends Gurumurthy to finish them. However, Gurumurthy is frequently berated by his father Lingamurthy, a police officer for beating local people, while Thirumurthy only feels for him.

After the death of Lingamurthy, The now grown-up Thirumurthy takes on the same police job by the request of Gurumurthy, who remains an unemployed youngster. Thirumurthy is posted as SI in Thoothukudi. Meanwhile, Thirumurthy falls in love with Vasanthi and Gurumurthy falls for her younger sister Jayanthi. Subsequently, Thirumurthy marries Vasanthi, and both the brothers shift to Vasanthi and Jayanthi's house. A number of humorous incidents follow, such as Jayanthi's to-be husband is actually revealed to be a clumsy NRI named Gautham, whom she disapproves. She openly expresses her love for Gurumurthy, who accepts.

Thirumurthy rises to fame in his job by having Gurumurthy secretly punish suspects and save victims for him. Everyone believes that Thirumurthy actually fought the criminals himself, but in reality, he took credit for Gurumurthy's doings, unknown to them. One of the village's biggest mob bosses, Annachi, discovers the truth via a CCTV showing Gurumurthy. Enraged, he has his men severely beat up Thirumurthy, making the latter confident that his brother will continue his job. Gurumurthy proclaims that he made Thirumurthy as a policeman to overcome his fears and become stronger. Following his recovery, Thirumurthy begins training under Gurumurthy and subsequently overcomes his fear and manages to defeat a few of Annachi's men and tactically, with Gurumurthy's help, kill Maari, the goon responsible for beating him up.

Eventually, Annachi and his men break into the brothers's house and cause havoc. Thirumurthy and Gurumurthy arrive and defeat all of Annachi's men; however, they are unable to beat Annachi. When Annachi falls for a trap set by the brothers, he is defeated, but the two brothers quarrel about whether to kill or arrest him. Gurumurthy declares that they will roll a gun; if the gun stops rolling at the brothers, they will arrest Annachi, but if it stops at Annachi, he will be killed. The gun stops rolling at Annachi, and he tries to grab the gun, but Gurumurthy stops him by kicking him, and Thirumurthy shoots him dead.

Thirumurthy is again congratulated by the local police, but gives equal credit to Gurumurthy as well. Through this praise, Gurumurthy also gets to join the police force.
