The film opens with Raghuvaran (Dhanush) winning the Engineer of the Year Award working for Anitha Constructions and is an executive now with a parking spot. His wife Shalini (Amala Paul) becomes an authoritative, nagging wife who controls him. Raghuvaran is also dismissive about his wife getting a job. Vasundhara (Kajol), chairman of a big construction company in South India, makes Raghuvaran a job offer, but he refuses. This offends her and she begins to go after him, placing one obstacle after another. Here the actor for the story turns to be star for stardom. Later Raghu bags a 600 crore project with an Illaiyaraaja song and faces an another villainous person, Prakash (Saravana Subbaiah), a greedy businessman who wants to build a theme park in a marshy land. Other elements that complete the film include soapy sentiments, the Jallikattu protests and the Chennai floods.
