Vellaisamy is an unkempt derelict who lives by the village temple doing menial jobs to survive but has an impressive singing ability. Vaidehi is a young widow who lives in the village with her sorrowing, alcoholic father. One day when some villagers spot Vellaisamy scribbling Vaidehi's name on the temple walls, rumours start circling. When a distressed Vaidehi approaches and questions Vellaisamy, he reveals his tragic past and how he lost the woman of his affection, also named Vaidehi. Vellaisamy and Vaidehi now share a mutual respect for each other's melancholic lives but soon realise they need to work together to unite a young couple in love against the wrath of the whole village.
