Kailasam Pillai’s (Radha) children, Sabapathi (Ashokan) and Puridham (Saroja), grow into wealthy spoiled brats. The simple, but courageous and wise, farmer Murugappan (MGR) has two female relatives, Thilai (Jothilakshmi), whom he is to marry, and Valli (Manimala), both trained in traditional silambam (stick fighting). Sabapathi also covets Thilai and he challenges Murugappan to a silambam duel while Puridham drugs the honest farmer, so that Thilai is forced to marry Sabapathi. The angry Murugappan then resolves to impose himself on Puridham, bullying her into become his meekly obedient farmer’s wife.
