Story: Ganesh (Vijay) is the son of Government Hospital Doctor Chandrasekar (Raghuvaran). He is a BSc graduate and who has no job. He falls in love with a girl called Santhya (Suvalakshmi) who is a college student doing her BSc Computer Science. Her objective is to get a gold medal along with her degree. She claims herself to be very stubborn in her heart, meaning, she would not fall in love with any one. She is the daughter of Vasudevan (Rajan P. Dev) & Krishnaveni.
Vasudevan is a rough police inspector and is a Doubting Thomas kind. Ganesh visits the bus stop daily to see Santhya and to travel in the same bus (just to see her). Since he does not know how to approach a girl to convey his love, he seeks the help of his friends Peter (Karan), ‘Mimicry’ Thamu and company. The ‘Peter gang’ is a bunch of college graduates who has no job to do and they spend their time in bus stops, watching women. They suggest some ideas to Ganesh but they don’t work.
Santhya even tells Ganesh openly that she does not like him. Prithi (Manthra) is Santhya’s classmate and she is known to Peter. Ganesh meets Prithi (through Peter) and he requests her to convey his love to Santhya. Prithi first refuses (knowing Santhya) and then agrees to try. But her attempt is of no use. Ganesh never gives up. He keeps on trying. He talks to Santhya directly. But she says that she does not like him.
In the meanwhile, Santhya’s dad Vasudevan comes to know that Ganesh is following his daughter and he beats him up and arrests him. Santhya gets into trouble too. How Ganesh’s love affects the lives of Ganesh, his friends, his dad, Santhya and her family forms the rest of the story. What happens to Ganesh’s love is a million dollar question!
