Maaran (Sathyaraj) is a clerk in the district collector’s office. His life centres around his loving wife (Seetha), his son (Raghuvannan), and his daughter (Preethi Varma). Soft-spoken, and a Gandhian to the hilt, Maaran does not stand by any smear on the Mahatma’s name. Being a staunch patriot, he had even named his son Sudhandhiram.
The film opens with Sakthi (Vishal), son of a forest ranger, beating up a gang that illegally cuts precious trees to earn money. Sakthi is a jungle trekker who spends his time bringing groups of tourists on trips into the jungle.
Almost immediately the story changes track and introduces Sakthi’s girlfriend Rupa (Sunaina). The lovers soon part ways citing compatibility issues where Rupa complains that Shakthi is not the loving boyfriend she wanted. Sakthi’s character is as such that he does not remember even a single detail in their love life that Rupa deems important. Rupa tells Sakthi that he does not seem to have the time for a girlfriend and that he does not even care to do so. Rupa further aggravates the situation by asking Sakthi to close his eyes and tell her the colour of the dress she was wearing right then, but Sakthi finds that he could not. Grieved, Rupa leaves Sakthi, saying this was his character and that he would not change.
