The film's music was composed by Mani Sharma, and the venture had a theatrical release across Tamil Nadu in August 2007.
Deepika (Bhavana) is an arrogant rich girl. A medical college student, she dictates terms at the college. Sister of local don Kasi (Prakash Raj), she is feared by students, professors and even the Dean of the College.
Enter Aariya (Madhavan), a final year student who comes to Chennai Medical College from Coimbatore. A soft-spoken Aariya runs into Deepika. They develop cold shoulders. In a fit of rage, she kidnaps Aariya's sister. But Aariya faces her challenges daringly. However, she soon falls in love with him.
But he is not ready to marry the sister of a ruffian. The remaining story tells us how the brother and sister put pressure on Aariya to become a rowdy so that Aariya's status is equal enough as Kasi's status so that Aariya can marry Kasi's sister Deepika.
Meanwhile, "Snake" Babu (Vadivelu) is elected the area councillor, and has a few encounters with Dr. Aariya, and one with Deepika. He is the main source of comic relief for the film.
