Three month old twin boys are separated when a sweeper in a train steals one of the children for his gold chain. Having taken the chain, he abandons him where he is found by the matriarch of a large family (Lakshmi), who brings up the boy as her grandson as her family has no heir. 27 years later, one of the boys Vasu (Suriya) is chief officer in a detective agency in the matrimonial department in Chennai and is mostly given cases to find out the true character of intended grooms and brides while the other, Vetrivel or Vel (Suriya again) is the unofficial good Samaritan and protector of his village, Dindukkal, fighting ex-minister Sakarapandi (Kalavbhavan Mani) who is after his family due to an old enmity wherein he had murdered Vel's 'parents' since Vel's adoptive father (Nasser) had exposed his corrupt ways causing him to lose heavily in the elections.
