Kumaresan plays the lead character Dev, a drifter who turns into an alcoholic after losing his lover. Dev’s life changes after meeting a witty, orphaned boy named Arun, with whom he develops a deep friendship while going up against a human trafficking syndicate.
Later, while stealing a car for a getaway, Dev accidentally kidnaps its owner, Gayatri, which sets off a chain of events that has the couple at loggerheads at first, but eventually falling in love.
