Vetriselvan (Sathyaraj) is an established and old-fashioned music director who is loved and respected for his works and is termed as the greatest musician of our times. A. K. Shiva (S. J. Surya), who works as an assistant under Vetriselvan, gets an opportunity to compose music for a small-time film. When he seeks permission from Vetriselvan to go ahead with his first venture as a music director, Vetriselvan does not oppose the idea as he would not have imagined even in his wildest dream that one day, Shiva would surpass him in the musical world. When Shiva introduces new techniques and pioneers the use of synthesizers, his music gets the attention of all music lovers. Due to the freshness and modernity his music possesses, he becomes the most sought after musician and overtakes Vetriselvan. Shiva becomes the number one musician and builds his own studio. Meanwhile, he falls in love with Jenny (Sulagna Panigrahi) and marries her. When it seems everything he touches turns to gold, Vetriselvan displays his psychopathic form. To get his glory back, Vetriselvan does whatever it takes to label Shiva unfit to compose music. Can Shiva bounce back despite his new and unwanted status forms the rest of the story.
