Priyanka Sharma (Hanska) is a TV reporter who is covering the news, and Riaz Ahmed (Sampath) is the investigating officer for the scam! At the inaugural function, Sugan gets to interview Varatharajan, who is so impressed by the young man that he is willing to offer his second daughter in marriage to him. However, the elder son-in-law Ramakrishnan opposes this. On the return journey, Sugan insists that they stop at a roadside eatery for biryani, his weakness.
Sugan, who took to enjoying a drink right from his 11th standard, has the peculiar habit of eating Biriyani at any costs after drinking. After enjoying a night out drinking with his friend Parasuram, the duo set off in search of Biriyani, and end up at a resort where they meet the spicy Maya (Mandy Takhar)!
