A princess (Sriranjani), while travelling in a horse carriage, meets with an accident when the horses run wild, and is rescued by a handsome young man (MGR). The two fall in love and the princess gives him a signet and invites him to her palace. Problems arise when the king wishes to get the princess married and the queen (Madhuri Devi) wishes to have her married to her useless brother (Durairaj.)

After many thrilling incidents, the lovers are united and live happily as expected!

    Box Office

    In spite of the interesting onscreen narration, deft direction and excellent camerawork by Marconi and impressive performances by MGR, Serukalathur Sama and others, Kumari did not do well.
