Rajnikanth went on to become Superstar of Tamil Stars, Kamal Hassan's career catapulted to Successful career from a stuntman/Choreographer role, This movie identified Sridevi as mainstream actress from Child artist. This movie revolves around 16 year old Mayil played by Sridevi. Owing to her 16 year old a local vet hangs out with her later to ditch her for a homely girl. After Mayil is deserted, there are only two people in her life, Parattai (played by Rajnikanth) and Chappani(Played by Kamal Hassan). When Parattai sees opportunity of attaining her Chappani acts in.
