Kalyanam is the na├»ve and infantile son of Chinnadurai, a wealthy tea estate owner. Realising that his son would not be able to manage the estate or even also take care of himself after his death, Chinnadurai tries to get him married to an educated and confident girl, but fails as Kalyanam does not like her. Kalyanam is in love with Shenbagam, a girl working in the same estate who is the daughter of Chinnadurai’s driver Perumal. Along with his young friend Kuppu, he keeps chasing her, but she does not reciprocate.
