Jackson (Vijay) is a drunkard and a spendthrift, whose only aim in life is to make Kumudha (Pavana) happy. She is the girl he is in love with since his school days. Kumudha, however, detests him and takes the help of local goons to bash him up to prevent him from following her. Then a murder of the local don happens and Jackson is blamed for the same. How he manages to escape from the clutches of the goons and proves his innocence forms the crux of the story.
