Pughazhendi (RK) spends all his time drinking and is ridiculed by villagers. In contrast, his elder brother Pandithurai (Nepolean) is respected and admired by everyone. Pandithurai showers love and affection on Pughazh. He even tries to arrange for his wedding hoping that he would reform. But knowing about Pughazh and his habits, nobody comes forward to give their daughter to him. Pughazh who spends all his time with his maternal uncle Kaththamuthu (Vadivelu) comes across Janani (Bhanu). It's love at first sight for him. Meanwhile, the family of Rathnavelu (Lal), another powerful man in the village, is hell-bent on revenging Pandithurai and his family due to previous enmity. They hatch a conspiracy and try to halt the wedding of Pughazh and Janani. It is now up to Pughazh to bump off Rathnavelu and restore peace in his family.
