Reema Sen showers love and affection on Bharath, her neighbor, since childhood. Bharath happens to be the only son of a rich business tycoon Girish Karnad, who loses his mother at a young age. Reema treats Bharath as her younger brother and spends all her time with him. Meanwhile, Vishal, an income tax officer, turns up at Girish Karnad's house for an IT raid and happens to meet Reema there. They eventually fall in love and after a series of incidents they get wed locked. They settle in Goa then. The trouble begins when Bharath reaches Goa in search of Reema. He manages to kidnap Reema and bring her to Chennai. The reasons for Bharath's obsession and possessiveness towards Reema unfolds as the movie progresses. Vishal who comes back to Goa finds the house deserted. The next door neighbor tells him that Reema eloped with Bharat. He then begins to track her down and finds that the duo had left to Chennai. Vishal reaches Chennai, but is unable to tell his parents the real plight. With the help of Vivek, his colleague, he tries to trace her out. A chance look at the video of their marriage throws light on Bharat’s hatred towards Vishal. Now Vishal is convinced that Reema did not go with her own free will, but was coerced. He confronts Bharat’s father but he is of no help. Finally he traces out the location of Bharat’s hideout. Reema on the other hand pleads with Bharat to release her. She explains that she cannot be his wife and can see him only as a son or a little brother. The plea falls on deaf ears. In a racy climax on high seas, the three protagonists fight it out and Reema hits Bharat with the boat oars. He plunges in to the sea in an unconscious condition taking Reema along. Vishal comes at the nick of the time to save her. Even though she had killed him because of his attack on her, she is filled with remorse.
