     12Based on a Madurai folk narrative, the 
     13melodrama claims to address the downside of 
     14marriages arranged in the cradle, but actually 
     15solicits our sympathy and understanding for 
     16callously brutish men. The crude drunkard 
     17Mayandi (Rajkiran) marries and rapes his 
     18fearful young niece Cholaiamma (Meena), 
     19making her pregnant. The girl eventually 
     20realises that Mayandi is a nice man whom she 
     21should have loved all along, but it is too late 
     22and she dies in childbirth. Undeterred, 
     23Mayandi then turns his attentions to 
     24Choliamma’s sister Kasturi (Preetha) and, 
     25recognising that only truly brutish men are 
     26irresistible, she challenges him to try and take 
     27her away from the man who loves her. The 
     28latter, in contrast to the sterling masculine 
     29qualities of Mayandi, is represented as a 
     30weakling who actually loves Kasturi. Mayandi 
     31eventually realises that he has to curb his 
     32notions of ‘masculinity’. Unfortunately, he 
     33pays the price for this change of heart and he 
     34dies in the arduous process of helping Kasturi 
     35to get together with her beloved weakling, 
     36whereupon Kasturi adopts her sister’s 
     37orphaned child.
