As the name suggests, this is a story of a simple soul from Ambasamudram who dreams big. Dandapani, (Karunas), who ran away to the city following his mother's accidental death, is a hard working soul. He finds work as a newspaper delivery boy on the intervention of Annachi, (Kota Sreenivasa Rao) an industrialist.
As he grows up he aspires to become a businessman like Ambani. It is a dream he cherishes fondly all the time. He believes his hard and sincere efforts will take him there. A kind soul too, Dandapani takes a beggar boy Karthi (Shankar) under his care. Karthi assists him at his work. Hoping to learn from the rich in the art of becoming wealthy, Dhandapani rents a room in a residential area dominated by the well to do.
In the neighbourhood lives Nandhini, (Navneet Kaur) with her parents. Her father (V.M.Haneefa) is bent on making her an IPS officer. He leaves no stone unturned in this process, much against her wishes though.
Coming up in the area is a shopping mall by Annachi. Dhandapani wants to buy a shopping space there for his future venture. And he offers his entire savings to Annachi. Initially not keen on allotting him space, Annachi finally relents. But on one condition, that is, his son should not know about it, until Dhandapani made the entire payment. Dhandapani is ecstatic. He agrees for he believes in Annachi and takes no receipt for the payment he makes. A cruel joke is played on him when the old man suddenly dies. Dhandapani has no proof of the payment made. So does he realize his dreams?
Watch the film for the climax. Also its message that goodness and kindness never go unnoticed. Sometimes it comes back to us in the most unlikely of situations. And of course that hard work always pays.
Karunas as the protagonist is quite good especially when it comes to emoting disappointment and hurt. Navneet, as his love interest looks more like an item number in her revealing costumes and dance numbers. Then there is Delhi Ganesh in his inimitable dignified style. Haneefa and Livingstone have been reduced to mere clowns. There is an overdose of comedy which borders more on sexual innuendos and slapstick. However, Karunas' music is good.
A time pass film.
