The film opens with a playful Kolanji (Kirubakaran) getting a few whacks from his father Appasamy (Samuthirakani), who is an atheist. Kolanji's playfulness and unruly behaviour lands him in trouble at all times with his father, who keeps scolding and beating him. This forms a hatred for his father in Kolanji, but he seems to be happy when he is with his uncle Gemini (Rajaj), and he helps him in his love for his cousin sister Poongoodi (Naina Sarwar). The story revolves around Kolanji and his feelings towards his father, and takes a drastic turn after an incident involving his younger brother. How Kolanji realises his father's affection when he lands in trouble with a fellow villager's son forms the rest of the story.
