This story begins with Chinna Vandu’s (Dhanush) brothers Paranjothi and Paranthavan (Sriman and Sathyan) who are not yet married, despite their old age. Chinna Vandu, who studied in his uncle’s son home, falls in love with Vanaroja (Nazriya Nazim) who comes there to visit her Grandma (Sachu) and see the village festival. Chinna Vandu finds many ways to make Vanaroja to fall in love such as making her laugh, but she still does not fall in love with Chinna Vandu. During the village festival, Vanaroja’s ring goes missing, so her father Poongavanam (Aadukalam Naren) comes there and tells everyone to find the ring for a reward of 1 lakh. Only Chinna Vandu finds it in front of Vanaroja, but he gives the ring to a poor lady to claim the prize, as Vanaroja does not like him. Seeing this, Vanaroja falls in love with him. Chinna Vandu makes a challenge to himself: to know whether Vanaroja’s in love or not. He gets to know that Vanaroja is also in love with him. Vanaroja leaves the village to her home but upon reaching she finds her father has arranged for her engagement with Krishna (Vamsi Krishna) and is getting married with Krishna on her birthday. Chinna Vandu comes to wish her for her birthday on that night, and comes to know about the engagement. They both escape from Krishna and his henchmen. Chinna Vandu tells his uncle’s son (cousin) Soori (Soori) that he has eloped with Vanaroja, and asks him to come and meet them. Soori tries to find a way for Chinna Vandu to live with Vanaroja, but Chinna Vandu tells him that he has already married her. Soori tells them to hide their marriage and go to his family in Kumbukonam. Soori brings Vanaroja to Chinna Vandu’s house saying that she is an orphan and his family accepts her in. But Chinna Vandu’s brothers start to love Vanaroja. Chinna Vandu comes there and makes sure that his brothers do not marry her. After some days their mother finds that Vanaroja is pregnant, and she throws her out of the house, meanwhile Krishna’s men find Vanaroja and kidnap her.
