This fast-paced social comedy follows the misadventures of Ayyampettai Arivudainambi Kaliyaperumal Chandran, a hip graduate who gets a job through his family doctor. The employer, Sri Ramachandramurthy has some frivolous notions about character that involve moustache, patriotism, thrift, recreation, etc. Chandran changes himself as a Nehru-jacket wearing, boring person, with no interests other than studies. His plan goes for a toss when he lies about his (dead) mother's accident to watch a hockey match. His boss finds him having fun in the stadium. To avoid losing his job, he creates a wild and westernized fictional twin Ayyampettai Arivudainambi Kaliyaperumal Indran by removing his moustache on the advice of his actor friend Nagesh and becomes the music teacher for his employer's equally wild daughter. Confusion and complications ensue when he has to recruit a small-time actress as his mother, and a kid who knows the proceedings starts blackmailing him.
