Maariyappan is a fun-loving gangster whose sidekicks are Sanikkizhamai and Robert aka Adithangi (punching bag). Maari is chased around by Araathu Aanandi, a auto rickshaw driver who is head over heels in love with him. However, try as she might, Maari does not give her a second glance and constantly shows his annoyance to her.

In a parallel storyline, Gangadhar Beeja(calling himself as Thanatos-God of Death) is shown to have escaped from jail, after killing two police officers, with the cell walls scrawled with the words “Kill Maari”. He is out for revenge, as his brother, who was a defence lawyer, promised to get Beeja released from jail. Unfortunately, his brother is killed at the hands of Maari as the former tried to molest Aanandi’s elder sister. This is also the reason why Aanandi loves Maari.

Maari gets his 100th murder attempt on his life by his rival Singayya, and to celebrate, Kalai, Sani, and Adithangi throw Maari a party. While coming back, Maari gets attacked, and Aanandi takes him to the hospital and takes care of him.

Kalai’s brother Vallavan is shown to be hand-in-glove with Singayya, who has formed an alliance with Beeja to overthrow Maari. As per Beeja’s plan, Vallavan asks Sani to send Aanandi for a job, which turns out to be drug smuggling, a job which Maari hates. Aanandi unknowingly goes to do the job and gets caught by Kalai. On confronting Aanandi, she tells him that Maari asked her to do it. This sparks doubt in Kalai’s mind. Vallavan is caught by Maari carrying the drugs, and when Maari confronts Kalai, a fight erupts. Maari and his sidekicks set fire to all the drugs, and Beeja kills Vallavan to make it look as if Maari killed him. Kalai gets enraged and orders his men to kill Maari. Maari is injured in the battle, and Beeja reveals himself as the perpetrator. Beeja then shoots Maari, but Maari is saved by Aanandi, who took the bullet for him, which ended up in her lower spinal cord, paralysing her legs for life.
