Abhimanyu and Samyukta meet in an automobile accident and instantly hate each other, but conspire to help Shiva's brother Sundhar who has fallen in love with Shakthi's sister Meenakshi. Following a series of misunderstandings, Meenakshi's marriage to Gautham is called off and the new match proposed. Meenakshi's parents agree but Sundhar's mom Subatra insists that Shiva marry first as the eldest son. Though a woman hater with no interest in marriage, Shiva says he will marry his employee, Nithya.
Shakthi learns that Subatra has ill intentions and Subatra threatens to have Meenakshi killed if Shakthi doesn't stop the marriage. Shakthi is suspicious when Nithya disappears, but it turns out that Shiva was never serious about the marriage and paid Nithya to pretend. Shiva's relatives suggest that he marry Shakthi and he asks her to refuse his proposal before their families. However, she accepts it and they are soon married, as are Meenakshi and Sundhar.
Both couples move into the family home, though Shiva and Shakthi continue to quarrel. Subatra consults an astrologer and is convinced that there is a threat to Sundhar's life, which is why she tried to interfere with their marriage. Told of this, Meenakshi makes excuses to postpone the consummation of their marriage to save Sundhar, and the couple faces ongoing interference from his relatives. Shakthi later learns that the astrologer is a cheat
Aishwarya moves into the home in a scheme of Subatra's, and she tries to come between Sundhar and Meenakshi.
