So, he seeks refuges in his sister house lakshmi prabha,the hero's widowed mother.
Meanwhile, another of the hero's Uncle(M. R. Radha) sets his eyes on the hero's estate and dancer-cousin(Anjali Devi). She escapes the villainous uncle and meets the Street dancer. The two woman becomes friends. Realising that the street dancer is in love with the man herself is in love with the cousin decides to sacrifice her love. She pretends to agree to marry the villainous uncle, but at the wedding, she consumes poison and collapse at the end doing what she does best dancing.
Music by maestro K.V. Mahadevan was a major plus for the film and many songs became popular. One of them, ‘Sottunu Sottunu…’, a duet (lyrics by A. Marudhakasi in the voices of Mahalingam and P. Susheela) filmed on the hero and the street dancer in her hut leaking in the rain became a super hit.
Mahalingam gave a good performance, singing in his usual style while Saroja drew attention with her dancing talent. Anjali Devi was her usual self, and her performance as the woman who gives up her love was touchingly impressive. M.R. Radha played the characteristic on-screen villain in his inimitable style, voice and dialogue delivery, punctuated with humour and satire.
