Ramarajan (Shiva) and Rajkiran (Santhanam), who are named after the actors as their parents are big fans of the actors. But for some reasons, the characters played by the Shiva and Santhanam choose to call themselves - Dhoni and Sehwag. They are jobless, but they are not bothered about it. Roaming in the streets, drinking and teasing good-looking girls, keep them busy.
Strangely, Dhoni in search of a government job even though he is sure that he would not find one. Kanaka (Sandhya) plays the role of his uncle's daugther and police constable. Their families want them to marry, but both are not interested with this idea.
On attending an intereview, Dhoni comes across Seetha (Dhansika) and falls in love, it is a love at first sight. But his close friend Sehwag tries to break their relationship. It is because he has been told to do so by buck-toothed local councillor played by Devadarshini. What follows next is the interesting part of the Tamil flick.

There are few poorly written scenes and the entire screenplay lacks the basic energy in the flow.
Shiva has done his usual role and there is nothing new in it. He is being typecast before audience would completely ignore him. Santhanam too has failed to impress, except occasional brilliance.
Dhansika and Sandhya are good looking, but their role is limited. Powerstar Sreenivasan appears and tries to change the mood of the audience.
Vijay Ebenezer's music is not inspiring but Vetri's cinematography is good. I Rajasekaran, the captain of the ship, could have done a lot more work on his story and screenplay.
With names of Shiva and Santhanam in the cast, people were expecting something better. In the end, it is nothing but a waste-of-time affair.
