Usha Theatres` Pallavan is a teenage love story with all newcomers.
Manoj (Manoj Bharathiraaja) and Shankar (Shankar) are brothers. They both share all secrets and are the best of friends. Rathi (Rathi) is a very beautiful girl whom Manoj meets and it is love at first sight for him. Shankar too starts liking the same girl without knowing that his brother is in love with her. At one point the brothers come to know that they both love the same girl and what follows in the climax, forms the rest of this love story.
This will be a make or break film for Manoj as his previous films did not fare well at the box office. The music is by Vidyasagar and camera is by Lakshmi Narayanan. The story and direction is by Padmanabhan. The others in the cast are Nassar, Madan Babu, Mayilsami, Nalini, Shara and Abhishek.
