Prof. Krishnan (Sivaji Ganesan) is a role model; honest and austere, he is a staunch follower of Swami Vivekananda. His principle in life is "Duty First". He swears by his profession that he shall serve his students to the best of his abilities and, to that end, will live as a bachelor. There is a feeling of admiration and great respect for him among his students. But love strikes his heart in the form of a student, Radha (Devika). Even though he tries to resist her, he succumbs to her beauty and love. Prof. Krishnan's orderly life is in shambles.


The film was a hit and ran over 90 days at Tamil Nadu. It did well at the box office.


Music composed by Viswanathan–Ramamoorthy.[1] The song "Aarumaname Aaru" is based on Bilakshan-i-todi raga.[2]
