This socially relevant tale evocatively depicts the abundant positive impact of tolerance and can mindedness in our society, especially when it comes to inter-religious relationships.
Madhava Menon (Thilakan) who worked in the All India Radio always respects other religions and works for the upliftment of the society. Malavika (Devika) is his eldest daughter. She is betrothed to Unnikrishnan (Krishna). She is more than a sister to her two younger siblings, since their mother had died when they were quite young.
Menon, is regretful that he hasn't been able to save much money for his children, and the family finds it hard, to make ends meet, as days pass by. There is a Muslim family staying nearby, headed by Kunjali (Mamukkoya). His son-in-law, on a job in the Middle East, had been missing for about six long years.
As Menon and Malavika struggle to maintain the family against all odds, especially with Mallika's younger siblings getting into deep trouble, and it is the support and encouragement of the Muslim family that helps them. Will Mallika succeed in spearheading the family out of its troubles, and into a secure and prosperous future?
