Chakaravarthi, a famous film director, is desperately trying to reach his college. As he drives, he narrates the story based on his college days:
Chakaravarthi's father, Ganesan, is a strict father who cares a lot about Chakaravarthi's studies and wants him to be a civil engineer. But Chakaravarthi hates studying and lies to his father about his test marks. Meanwhile, Chakaravarthi falls in love with Angaiyarkanni alias Angu, during his school days. Initially, she avoids him, but soon reciprocates his feelings, but they end up going their separate ways after Ganesan and Angu's father have a confrontation about their relationship, since Chakaravarthi claims Angu is just his friend, to avoid his father bashing him up.
Chakravarthy joins BEC (Best Engineering College) in Coimbatore, where his expectations of enjoying college life is ruined by the college's disciplinarian professor, Bhoominathan, who the students fear and hate. Chakravarthi constructs a plan to send Bhoominathan away to be a visiting professor in St. Paul's University in Russia so that the students can be in a happy environment. Meanwhile, Chakravarthi meets Angu again, who also joins BEC. He tries to woo her, but in vain where Angu befriends Lilly, a first year student. Lilly explains to Chakravarthi, that after the incident in their school days, Angu's father stopped talking to her.
Chakaravarthi successfully patches them up after he creates a short film and ends it on an emotional note that Angu's father and Angu get reunited. Angu is impressed and reciprocates his feelings. Amidst all of this, Bhoominathan unexpectedly returns from Russia, and discovers that Chakravarthi was the one who sent him to Russia. In revenge, he clicks a photo of Chakravarthi and Angu at the Taj Mahal and uses it to complain to Killivallavan, the chairman of BEC. Chakravarthi, in return, presents a picture of Bhoominathan with Miss Swetha at the Taj Mahal. This gains the wrath of Killivallavan, who is disappointed about Bhoominathan.
Meanwhile, Ganesan finds out the truth about Chakravarthi in the college and his test marks, including the school. Feeling cheated and enraged, he slaps Chakravathi. Chakaravathi decides to venture into filmmaking by attending a short film competition and secretly films portions in the college, with the help of cameraman Perusu. When nearing the climax, Bhoominathan finds out about his secret filming. With a muddle up of guns, drama and confusion, Bhoominathan suffers an accident that severely injures his neck, but eventually survives.
Ganesan finds out about Chakravarthi's secret filmmaking and destroys his short film because of which Chakravarthi and Ganesan have an intense confrontation. Frustrated with his father, he leaves the house. Bhoominathan gradually recovers, whilst Chakravarthi prepares another short film for the competition. Bhoominathan and Chakravarthi develop a good rapport and Bhoominathan tells Chakravarthi that if he clears all of his arrears, he can get his Engineering Degree, thus burying the hatchet and ending their conflict.
Chakravarthi's short film gets shortlisted to the top and ends up being turned into a feature film, that enters the 100 Crore Club. It is revealed that the film is about Chakravarthi's own emotional bonding with Ganesan and his realisation Ganesan really did care for him before he died. Chakravarthi later marries Angu. The reason for Chakravarthi's desperation to get to the college was to get his engineering degree from the hands of Bhoominathan. He delivers an emotional speech to the students and audience, upon accepting and taking his degree, and also sees a vision of Ganesan applauding. Chakravarthi is revealed to have been added to the Proud Alumni list at BEC, something which he asked from Bhoominathan, in his earlier days at the college.
