Assistant Commissioner Naachiyaar (Jyothika) is a tough policewoman in Chennai who is put in charge of solving an underage rape case. She tracks down an 8-months pregnant Arasi (Ivana), the victim, on the run from her uncle and his goons who plan to get her an abortion. Although Naachiyaar saves Arasi, her uncle and his friends escape and go into hiding. Meanwhile, Naachiyaar's partner, Feroz arrests the suspect, Kaathu (G.V. Prakash Kumar). He is then sent to a juvenile home, where he tells his story to one of the wardens, who is soft-hearted towards him.

Through flashbacks, we see how Kaathu and Arasi first met. Both are still teenagers from the slums but they do not go to school but are forced to work to help support their respective families. Arasi works as a maid at wealthy families' homes while Kaathu does odd jobs for a living. One day, while her employers are away, Arasi invites Kaathu into the house where they (impulsively) make love. However, Arasi quickly regrets and pushes Kaathu away, who leaves upset.

Back in present day, Arasi gives birth to a healthy baby boy and Naachiyaar lets Arasi stay with her until the local government can ensure the mother and baby have a safe place to stay. However, DNA results show that Kaathu is not the father of Arasi's child. Naachiyaar decides to keep this a secret from Arasi until they can investigate this case even further.

Feroz arrests Arasi's uncle and manipulates him into leading them to a fake doctor who conducts illegal abortions. After Naachiyaar threatens him, the fake doctor reveals that one of his most powerful clients, a wealthy north-india based moneylender Thangamani Prabhu is the one who raped Arasi. One day, when Arasi was working alone at his home, the moneylender took advantage of her becoming unconscious as a result of falling in kitchen, raped her. The old moneylender, who holds a powerful position in the society immediately calls the fake doctor after he sexually assaulted Arasi to prevent any evidence leak, but the fake doctor lies about it being safe despite not using condom, planning to blackmail the moneylender once Arasi becomes pregnant.

Naachiyaar and Feroz go to the moneylender to arrest him but are summoned back to their superior's office since the culprit is very rich and well connected. After getting an information as to proposed suspension, Naachiyaar abducts the moneylender late night and castrates him. She then faces enquiry and gets transferred, because the police board is afraid of facing bad press if an action is taken against Naachiyaar, who gained immense popularity due to the case. She took initiative to reunite Kaathu with Arasi. Her husband tells Kaathu the truth but Naachiyaar refrains from telling the truth to Arasi to keep her safe.

Kaathu requests Naachiyaar not to reveal the truth to Arasi. As far as Kaathu is concerned, the baby boy is his and he plans to make sure Arasi never knows the truth. The couple with the baby happily board a bus.
