Padayappa (Rajini) is an
engineer who visits his hometown to attend his sister's
wedding. His sister is engaged to the son of his maternal
uncle. During this happy occasion, Padayappa's father's
foster brother (Manivannan) demands a share in the family
property. But, standing true to his words that the family
property should not be divided, Padayappa's father (Sivaji)
gives the entire property to him.
His family is then forced to leave their home. Due to this

then cancelled because the groom went for money and married
his uncle's daughter. Also, Nilambiri (Ramya Krishnan), the
spoilt daughter of his maternal uncle, is in love with him.
Meanwhile, Padayappa finds out that the hill that he owns
has granite, and he digs it out...
