Ingenious and insightful, this quirky comedy humorously traces the trials and triumphs in the life of Sethu (Mohanlal), an unemployed simpleton. His friend Madhavan (Sreenivasan) helps him out by masterminding a spate of robberies in a middle-class neighbourhood. Then, he sends Sethu in to pose as Raam Singh, a Nepali emigre, to fulfill the residents' need for a Gorkha, or security guard.
Happily employed, Sethu's future seems to be comfortable, until a police officer (Thilakan) and his daughter Maya (Karthika) move into the neighbourhood, bringing back memories from the past for Sethu. Will the relationship between Maya and Sethu work out this time around? Will everything end happily-ever-after?
