Soulful and evocative, this family-oriented drama delves into the life of a well-known Carnatic singer Raman (Venu) whose popularity wanes because of his addiction to drink. His protege and younger brother Gopi (Mohanlal) is forced to substitute for him when, during a performance, Raman is booed off.
This causes a rift between the brothers and Gopi gives up singing until a now-chastened Raman persuades him to make a comeback at an important music festival. However, Raman is killed by a truck and Gopi has to keep this a secret in order not to ruin the marriage changes of his mute sister. Gopi is later accused of having murdered his brother. Will the family ever understand and appreciate the immensity of the sacrifices made by Gopi for their welfare?
