Several people die mysteriously in the sea, so the navy looks for its best officer Vasanth Periyasamy (Vijayakanth) to investigate the case. Vasanth Periyasamy changes his identity into Krishnamoorthy. He is now a car driver and lives in disguise for his family's sake. In the past, he was married to the illiterate Meena (Meena) and has a daughter named Priya (Baby Jennifer). One day, a terrorist (Hemanth Ravan) kidnapped Meena and threatened to kill her if Vasanth Periyasamy does not release his partners in jail. Meena was then killed in the rescue mission, and the terrorists were released because of corrupt naval officers. The Department of the Navy then sent Vasanth to jail, so Vasanth Periyasamy decides to forget the navy and becomes a simple car driver in disguise. The navy then finds Vasanth Periyasamy and compels him to join them. He finally accepts to solve this odd affair and investigate the sea murders.
