Sivaraman, had musical score by Vidyasagar and was released on 20 September 1996. The film was an average grosser at the box office. This was the last movie for Silk Smitha.
Subash (Arjun), a good-for-nothing youth, enjoys his life as much as possible. His brother Rajasekhar (Siddique) is a minister, and his father (Jaishankar) is a court judge. Later, Subash falls in love with Savitri (Revathi), a middle class Brahmin girl. Savitri loves him but wants to marry an intrepid man, so Subash joins the army and becomes a military officer. Upon his return from the military camp, his family reveals that Savitri and her father died in an accident. Arumugasamy (Prakash Raj), an honest politician thought being Rajasekhar's opposition party but is actually his best friend, dies mysteriously. Subash suspects Thangamani (Manivannan), Arumugasamy's right hand, for Arumugasamy's death. Thereafter, Subash finds Savitri in Thangamani's house and saves her. Savitri discloses that Rajasekhar is a corrupt politician and maintains contact with terrorist groups. Rajasekhar's henchmen then killed Arumugasamy, and Thangamani began to sequester her. A heartbroken Subash swears to punish his brother and save his country from the terrorists.
