Shivashangaran (Abbas) is the son of dance teacher Yamini (Geetha). Exceptional circumstances put him in a juvenile correction centre. He escapes from there and flees to Palani, where he introduces himself Selvan from Theni, and teams up with ‘Patti’ (Manorama) and her adopted daughter and flower vendor Shankari (Suja Karthika) who live in a slum. Selvan does odd jobs for a livelihood. If he is a ‘Pujari’ one day, he is a ‘Kaavadi dancer’ another. Although he is liked by all for his easy going nature, no one knows who Selvan really is. Kaavadi dancer Mayilsami (Jagathy Sreekumar), horse cart driver Thamarakannan (Harisree Ashokan) and tea shop employee Thangavelan (Indrans) are all friends of Selvan.

Years later Selvan’s mother Yamini, who is still in search of her son, comes to Palani to fulfill a ‘Nercha’ she had obligated herself to in order to find her lost son. The ‘Nercha Kaavadi’ offered by her was performed by her son himself but she failed to recognize him although Selvan did. Selvan’s childhood friend Anjali (Geethu Mohandas) also comes to Palani on a project work. She recognizes Selvan and his mother and from then on, the story takes on a different perspective.

This is Kailas Rao’s first directorial venture after spending years as Art Director in the tinsel world. His erstwhile assistant Sony K Antony takes over from his mentor, and is the Art Director for the film. Camera work is by Uthpal V. Nayanar.
