"Ajith plays the roles of a father and his two sons; as the father he is paired with Kanika. Ajith is a trained Bharathanatyam dancer whose very passion about the art leaves him with an effeminate look. This reflects on his personality culminating into a deep dent in his marriage proposal. In one of such incidents, Kanika ridicules him by commenting that she is interested in marrying only a man. Outraged by such a comment doubting his masculinity, Ajith rapes her. This violent indignation of modesty results in Kanika becoming the mother of twin boys. Out of the twins, one is being raised by the father and the other by the mother.
