Her father Jagannathan refused to marry Kavitha with Manickam and he wanted Kavitha to marry a zamindar like him : Inspector of Police Thiagarajan (Nassar). The day of the wedding, Kavitha drank poison and died. The same night, Jagannathan, Thiagarajan and Thiagarajan's friend Pradeep (Pradeep Shakthi) beat up Manickam. Thiagarajan brutally raped his sister Lakshmi. Afterwards, Manickam managed to beat up them, he killed Kavitha's father in the process and he fled with his sister from that village.
