|The story opens with the death of Ram (Dhanush). His wife Janani (Shruti Haasan) realizes that her husband did not die naturally, as she finds his room stained with blood spatters. She recalls memories from when they first met and the story starts with a flashback when Ram and Janani were 12th grade students.
Ram is a rich happy-go-lucky guy. He sees Janani while thinking he is fixing a girl's cycle stuck in the rain and has a crush on her straightaway. He begins to follow her around with his friends Senthal and Kumaran
When Janani also begins to love him back, she is stopped by her poor family. When Janani's mother explains that they are moving to America, Janani burns her passport so she can stay with Ram. She is then ostracized from her family by her mother and she lands up at Ram's door. The two get married with Ram's father's help and lead a happy life.
The story then returns to reality with Janani finding a suicide letter in Ram's coat, and after reading it, she asks Senthal about his death. Senthal tells her the truth about Ram, that there were two sides to his mind. After Janani had told him she was leaving for America, the same night his best friend Senthal had also planned to leave for Singapore. Ram couldn't take all this pain and went to arun, which was when Senthal had realized that Ram was facing bipolar disorder.
If something positive happened,Ram would jump in joy, but if a tiny negative thing happened, he wouldn't be able to control his rage. Senthal explains that once when he told Ram about his disease, Ram smashed a glass bottle on his head. Ram escapes from the house and while walking on the road, suddenly hits his head on a vehicle. After that accident, Senthal couldn't see any other strange behavior from him. Ram agrees with Senthal to go see a doctor. But he rejects medications thinking that Janani would know about the situation.
He loves her so much, and he didn't want too see tears from her eyes. As a request of Ram, Senthal stays at Ram and Janani's house for few weeks, in case the situation becomes dangerous and if Ram tried to hurt Janani. Once, Ram tried to kill Janani during her sleep but was luckily stopped by Senthal.
The story moves forward to one evening at a nightclub, where Ram gets into a fight with a guy who misbehaves with Janani. Ram takes Janani to the car park and sends her home. After she leaves, the guy who misbehaved with Janani shows up with his friends and attack Ram and Senthal. In the course of the fight,Ram hits his head against at hood of a car. His medical situation is worsened as a result. He begins to experience bouts of rage. Owing to this,Ram manages to defeat the attackers. Meanwhile Senthal injects Ram with a medicine the doctor had prescribed in case of an emergency, thus sedating him and dissipating his rage.
On another day, while Ram and Senthal are in the car,Ram suddenly bashes his friend, Senthal's head against the steering wheel, rendering unconscious.Ram says his last words to his friend, "Sorry dude, you have done so much for me" and leaves the car in order to and go see Janani himself.
He remembers all the beautiful memories from their young age, and the ending takes onto the final scene of Ram's life, as he goes to Janani's bedroom and watches her sleeping. He tries to control his emotions and kiss her for the last time and suddenly a young girl appears saying "Either kill her or you die". He immediately gets away from her bed and goes to his office room and writes a suicide note.
He sees visions of many people in front of him crying and laughing. To avoid causing further harm to Janani, he picks up a fruit knife, and kills himself, saying his final words "I love you Janani".
