Tulasi (Radha) is a village girl. One day, she gets a letter from her cousin Subramani (Mohan). She gets excited as they were close friends in childhood, but Subramani left with his family to the city. Subramani visits the village for his college thesis about folk songs. Tulasi is in love with Subramani, but she is confused whether Subramani also loves her. Tulasi's father (Visu) passes away due to heart attack. When Subramani's mother arranges a marriage for Subramani with Tulasi, he refuses. Because of this, her mother died in frustration. Then, Tulasi comes to her uncle's house. Later, a flashback comes in which Subramani is in love with Noorjahan (Amala). Since Noorjahan used to come to the music college with veil, Subramani has not seen her face. On a day when they plan to meet, Noorjahan dies after she steps into quicksand. Finally, whether Tulasi marries her beloved cousin Subramani is the story.



All the songs are composed by M. S. Viswanathan except 'Sakkara Kattikku' 'Kuzhaloodum Kannanukku', which were composed by Ilayaraja. The song "Vaa Vennila" is inspired from one of the old composition of M. S. Viswanathan from the movie Chandirani.
