Bhaskar is a business tycoon and single parent. His father M. A. M. Rangasamy is a retired businessman, and Bhaskar has taken over his textile and real estate businesses. Bhaskar deals with all the complicated and critical situations in his business with rowdyism and is crude and crass. This behavior earns him the name “Rascal”. He is a widower and has a son named Aakash. Aakash and Shivani study in the same school. Shivani’s mother Anu is also a single parent. She meets Bhaskar at the school, and they get involved in a small altercation. Shivani admires Bhaskar for his authoritative stance and treats him like a father figure for his heroism.https://tamiltoon.com/
One day, Bhaskar goes with Aakash for a felicitation ceremony, where actress Kalyani is the chief guest. Kalyani gives an interview stating that she is in love with a businessman who is a single parent. Bhaskar reaches the venue at the same time. This creates a confusion among the press and media, and they mistake Bhaskar to be Kalyani’s love interest. The reporters bombard him with questions about Kalyani. Bhaskar misinterprets their questions and thinks that they are asking about his favorite beer “Kalyani”, and his statements go viral. Kalyani’s real love interest happens to see this news and separates from her. Bhaskar tries to set things right by meeting Kalyani’s love interest and settling the misunderstanding, but the latter insults Bhaskar. Things take a different course when the person denies Bhaskar an audience and insults him. This leads to Bhaskar thrashing the guy in his office which is also covered by the press.
All these events place Bhaskar in the spotlight for the wrong reasons. Anu does not have a good impression about him but takes a liking to Aakash’s mild-mannered nature. In school, Aakash is mocked by his classmates because of his father’s recent fiasco. Shivani tries to help Aakash, but one of the boys twists her hand. She attacks the boy in self-defense. The boy’s mother makes an issue of it, but thanks to Bhaskar’s timely intervention, the matter is sorted out. Bhaskar encourages Shivani to be outspoken and aggressive, but Anu dislikes it. She argues with Bhaskar, takes Shivani home, and scolds her.
