Chandan (Rajinikanth) is a playful young man. Upon completion of his degree, his uncle (Poornam Viswanathan) advises him to attend an interview for a job at his friend Sri Ramachandramurthy's (Thengai Srinivasan) company. The doctor advises Chandan to act in a manner most appreciated by Sri Ramachandramurthy: namely, wearing a Nehru kurta, always telling his full name, giving importance to his moustache, showing a lack of interest in sports and drama, showing respect for his father's words (i.e., by repeating the phrase ""My father always told me"" often) and detesting the concept of recommendations. During the job interview, Chandan follows his uncle's advice perfectly and gets the job along with a beaming smile from his new boss. However, Chandan eventually gets caught when Sri Ramachandramurthy watches him at a football match, which he attends with his friends. He took leave on that day by telling his boss that his mother (who died many years ago) was in a serious medical condition. To escape from the ire of his boss and being fired, he makes his boss believe that it was his (fake) twin brother Inder (without a moustache) who was at the match and not himself. This idea is inspired by a dual role played by his actor friend Nagesh in a fictional film where he is in two roles: one with a moustache and one without. Sri Ramachandramurthy (although not convinced but feeling guilty due to suspecting his top employee) wants to see Chandan's brother Inder as well as his mother and wants Inder to teach music to his daughter Sarojini (Madhavi). The now moustache-less Inder is the anti-thesis of the Chandan as seen by Sri Ramachandramurthy. Inder takes music classes for Sri Ramachandramurthy's daughter Sarojini and the two fall in love. A series of humorous scenarios follow, all involving Sri Ramachandramurthy being fooled by Chandan. One scene leads to another and eventually Sri Ramachandramurthy wants to marry off his daughter to Chandan (she knows the truth about the fake Inder by then).
