The punk villain Ramesh (Karan) is the leading thug in Shaktivel College where student violence has caused chaos. Order is restored by the new professor, Selvan (Kamalahasan). The best moments in the film are the spontaneouslooking scenes of intimacy between Selvan and his colleague Vasanthi (Gauthami), and the musical contest when the professor and his students, whose musical instruments have been destroyed by the villain, perform a full number entirely with natural sound effects. The script credits were withheld, apparently after Kamalahasan’s extensive informal contributions had transformed the story. Veteran Tamil actor Nagesh makes a remarkable cameo appearance as the father of Nirmala (Brinda), a college student killed by Ramesh.
