A Madurai couple elope after an inter-caste marriage  but Kathir 's ( Vishnu Ramasamy ) parents are baying for their blood and come searching for them to Chennai where the couple have found a sanctuary. But somwhow fate intervenes and Kathir is killed in an accident.  Now his pregnant wife Malar ( Chaya Devi) is left all alone. 2 good samaritan neighbours Anbu and Shankar  ( Sreeram Karthik, Murugan) rescue her but fate has other things in store.
