'Majaa' is the name of the truck the hero and his father and brother drive. These three are originally thieves. On a fine day they decide to say goodbye to that life of cheats and make an honest living. Hence with their savings they procure a truck and live by its earnings. Manivannan as father Govindu, Vikram and Pasupathi as his sons Prasad and Adi play these roles respectively. With this backdrop the story moves from one point to another with impressive turns given to the story. Each scene has an undercurrent of humor that keeps the audience ganging throughout its run.
The truck 'Majaa' breaks down at a remote place where they find a lonely house. They park the truck and think of procuring food for them. Adi breaks the promise not to resort to thievery again and goes to that house to rob some food. But without his knowledge a plate of rice lands in his hand. He brings it and gives it to his father. Govindu eats the whole thing and falls sick instantly. There in the hospital a doctor informs them that it is a food poisoning case. On recovery they go to the house and ask the inmates why they mixed poison in the food. Then the house owner Sambayya (Vijaykumar) says that he wanted to feed all his family members with it as he wanted to end theirs and his life because of highhandedness of the landlord of the place named Rayudu.
Govindu and his two sons make place in that house for themselves and give money to the family that they saved for the repairs of the truck. And with that they start farming. Now it is the turn of landlord Rayudu's men to attack these people. Rayudu's daughter Sita (Asin) is a witness of the way the hero Prasad thrashes those rowdies single-handed. Word reaches Rayudu about Prasad's valor. He arranges a combat between Prasad and his two muscle men Ram and Lakshman. The condition is that Prasad can ask him any favor, if he wins the battle. Prasad wins and demands Rayudu's daughter's hand.
After some more drama Rayudu realizes that Prasad is a worthy person to become his son-in-law. His daughter Sita also revealed to her father that she loves Prasad. And when everything has settled for marriage, one Raja Rao, a relative of Rayudu who aspires to marry Rayudu's daughter to acquire his property, plays villainy. How Prasad finally exposes the villain and then brings the story to a happy end is narrated latter with interesting episodes.
The drama is interspersed with good songs filmed on Vikram and Asin. Both the artistes gave good performances. Vikram proved again that he is a good actor of any role he is offered to play. Manivannan, Vadivelu and the dialogue writer contributed a lot to the comedy. There are impressive one-line wits. Pasupathi, Vadivelu, Manivannan gave impressive performances. Vadivelu got the dubbing voice of Brahmanandam while Kota Srinivasa Rao dubbed for Mani Vannan. That strength of that dialogue rendition also added to the scenic impact. Music has the voice of SP Balasubrahmanyam and the songs he sang with other artistes are melodious and sensible.
