Story
Pushpaka Vimana film follows an unnamed, almost penniless and unemployed youth (played by Kamal Haasan) whose fortunes change when he stumbles upon a millionaire drunk by the roadside. He takes the millionaire prisoner in his house and assumes his identity to taste the luxury of a five-star hotel. In the process, he falls in love with a magician's daughter (Amala). He uses his false identity to enjoy a romantic day with her.

Meanwhile a contract killer is sent after the millionaire who engages in repeated failed attempts to kill Kamal with knives made of ice. Finally, after seeing the millionaires wife lamenting her missing husband and witnessing other incidents that show him a different perspective on life, Kamal decides to give up his new-found luxury.

In the much-acclaimed ending, Kamal frees the millionaire and confesses everything to magicians daughter. The magician's daughter tells Kamal she still likes him and throws Kamal a flower and a note (presumably her address/phone number) from a car. However, a gush of wind blows the note and the rose down a sewage drain, suggesting the lovers never unite. The last shot shows Kamal Hassan standing at the employment line, once again a very poor man.
