Kamalahasan-scripted comedy based generally on Colin Higgins’ 9 to 5 (1980) shows three working women in a garment factory take revenge on their tyrannical employer. Pandian (Nasser) makes repeated sexual advances to Janaki, the office typist (Urvashi in the Dolly Parton role) and Papamma, the maid servant (Rohini). On his side is Madhavi (Sathya). When a new costume designer Sathya (Revathi) arrives, she decides to put an end to this exploitation. The three of them get their employer in an accident, and later kidnap him in the company guest house while reforming the office with new facilities including a creche. In the end, the young boss from the head office (Kamalahasan) sacks Pandian and Madhavi, makes Sathya the new head and proposes marriage to her.
