So he peeps through the window and is shocked to find his mom with another guy of the village. His mother opens the door and pleads him not to tell his father, But he does and so his father commits suicide. Karthik's mother continues her relationship which leads Karthik to kill his mother and the guy by setting the house in fire. He is sent to juvenile home where he grows up.

On release, the jail warden gives him the address of his uncle (father's younger brother) and asks him to concentrate on his studies. He goes to this address and realises that his uncle's wife is not interested in giving shelter to Karthik. So he leaves takes a bus to Chennai to start a new life.

As fate would have it, the bus meets with an accident and his co-passenger Saleem dies. Karthik picks up his certificates and joins a medical college by changing his identity as Saleem. He develops friendship with a rich guy in his college, named Ashok (Siddharth Venugopal) and also with his girlfriend Rupa (Rupa Manjari. Ashok allows Karthik to stay in his house. One night, Karthik tells him that he will leave the house, next morning. But Ashok doubts his identity. He opens the briefcase of Karthik while he is at shower.

He finds a photograph and realises that the father was different from the one he had introduced to Ashok. He confirms that Karthik is not Saleem. Suddenly Karthik enters the room and asks Ashok to give back the photo. Ashok removes the towel that Karthik was wearing and confirms that he is not a Muslim as it was not Circumcisied. Karthik gets angry and pushes Ashok which ultimately kills him. At first, he is shocked by this unexpected accident but later covers up the murder intelligently. He is able to cover it up for a while until Ashok's friend Suresh (Vijay Victor) finds out. Karthik kills Suresh. The next day the police comes and say that they have found suresh's corpse.
