(Updated synopsis appears in the moving page identified at the thread heading)
Aarthi (Sindhu), girl-friend of Ganesh who was working in a bank in Connoor. At Ganesh's suggestion, she had allowed terrorist Meera to stay with her briefly.

Subsequently, her home was found to have been set on fire and the assumption is that she has committed suicide.

Anandhi (Lata Rao), daughter of Varadharajan and Sivagami. Her parents had made plans to get her married to Raghu, an accountant, but because Raghu's grandfather was killed in an accident on the day of the intended engagement, his parents called off the wedding. She has now married Parthiban, son of industrialist Rathinavel.
Augustine, deep-sea diver in Connoor who had been tasked by terrorists Meera and Ranjan to retrieve a gun from the lake. Instead of handing over the gun to him, he keeps it for himself with a view to selling it later. He would be a material witness to Meera's identity.

Sezhiyan (Rajkamal), brother of Aarthi (and Sujatha) and an aspiring IAS officer. On a visit to Aarthi's home in Connoor, he had received revolutionary books from terrorist Meera. That cursory association led to police suspicions that he was implicated in the plot to assassinate Minister RSK and he has since been detained.

Sivagami (Shanthi Williams), wife of Varadharajan and mother of Gayathri, Ganesh, Saravanan, Anandhi and Seenu.

Having discovered that Aarthi has died in a fire, her brother Sezhiyan is in jail, her real father has died, and her mother has gone mad since her sister's death, Sujatha returns to Chennai pretending to be Aarthi, girl-friend of Ganesh, and is accepted into his household. Her intention is to unmask Ganesh, who she believes was responsible for Aarthi's death.
