On a visit to the village, Meenu decides to stay on to study in a nearby college, drawn to the aunt she loves and admires and the cousin she feels she must protect. The handsome young lecturer Hariharan is a distraction she fails to combat, while his disabled sister poses a fresh challenge. The nascent romance between her and Hariharan soon runs into trouble.Tragedy breaks the hitherto unrepentant Sabhesan and for the first time Meenu begins to understand Lalita’s patience with her autocratic husband. And love blossoms once again in her own life.
