Balu (Kamal Haasan) is a poor but talented bharatnatyam dancer, who cherishes the dream of participating in the All-India Classical Dance competition. Madhavi (Jayapradha) helps him secure his ambition. The crux of the film is the dancing, the art of it - and the love that could never quite be between the two characters.
