In this world of science, there are still some people who have faith in supernatural things such as ghosts, and believes in exorcism and poojas to control such forces. Ragava Lawrence, the director- cum- hero of the film Muni, also seems to be one such guy! Lawrence should know one thing. There is only one Rajinikanth in the industry. Aping or cloning the superstar is not going to help a growing actor like Lawrence. His excellent dancing and acting skills went in vain in this film due to his wrong story selection. Compared to his earlier hero roles in Tamil, Muni is tolerable to a certain extent. But as a full- fledged action hero and director in Tamil, we should say a big 'NO' to Lawrence. We are not saying this to upset him, but for the sake of his career.

The story is a mere Xerox copy the Malayalam film Pappan Priyapeta Pappan. Lawrence is a weak but mischievous fellow. To keep him within his limits, his father Vinu Chakkaravarty always tells him some ghost stories. After his marriage, they rent a house without knowing its haunted background .

Dhandapani, the owner of the house is an MLA and the villain of the film, who kills his friend Muni (Raj Kiran) brutally. Muni's soul haunts the house. One fine day, Mini's soul enters the body of Lawrence and wants to take revenge on Dandapani&co.The hero's parents arrange an exorcist (Naser) to control the soul of Muni. But Muni's soul tells about its past mournfully and convinces both the exorcist and the hero to retain it in his body until the revenge. It promises to vacate the body after the fulfillment of its goal.
