Professor Ilango comes to his native village near Theni, with his college going daughter, Charulatha (Mamta Mohandas). He has taken voluntary retirement from his college service and has come to live in his ancestral house. He plans to do research on folk songs and release a collection as a book. His student Sathiyamurthy (Vishal) assists him in this venture. Charulatha falls for Sathiya, on keenly observing his intellect, humaneness and social awareness. Meanwhile elections are announced to the State Legislature and the parties start finalizing the candidates for the constituencies. When the candidates start filing nominations, the dreadful things happen. Some candidates from both the major parties are murdered and all the candidates get jittery. Lot of candidates withdraw from the fray fearing death. The parties are in a fix on what to do. The Police are on the trace out for the killer. The Election Commission postpones the elections. When the police tighten their noose and tie loose ends, the killer is traced. The trail leads to Sathiyamurthy and it is found that he is aided in this bloodshed by Professor Ilango. Police arrest Ilango. At the same time Charu reveals her mind to Sathiya during their travel to Hyderabad. Sathiya reveals his undercover deeds. He also tells her about the bitter and gory events which forced himself and Professor Ilango to resort to this task of cleansing the society of the current breed of dangerous, inhuman and selfish politicians. Sathiya escapes from the police's net and makes another attempt at the Minister. Whether he succeeds in his attempts and was he able to send out the message correctly to the people forms the final pulsating moments. The final moments have been shot at the Annual Azhagar festival in Madurai.

The climax of the movie has been shot at the annual Azhagar festival in Madurai amidst lakhs of thronging crowds. This holy celebration attracts millions of devotees from all over the world, and was a very risky proposition for shooting a movie sequence, which was done with a great deal of expertise.

The film was released on November 2006 to favourable reviews, but became a commercial failure.

Mamta Mohandas made her debut in Tamil with this film.
