What comedy of errors can we expect onscreen where three men with distinctly different qualities and status share the same name? Well, that's the basic foundation on which Kaalai is based, giving an alluring lead into the movie. Simbu, the villain and a cop share the same name - Jeeva. All three get linked up in the plot.

The main story begins with a flashback. Seema (Simbu's grandmother) rules the village. Nobody questions her orders; all bow to her superior wisdom. Why does this old woman command such great respect and reverence? When she was barely ten, Seema had killed five illicit liquor brewers in the village to demonstrate her obedience to her father orders. Thus began her recognition as a born leader, accepted and worshipped by the villagers.'Guthka Lakhidi' and 'Vanduttaanda Kaalai' are two outstanding songs in the six energetic numbers.
