Set against the vibrant backdrop of a Malayalee Syrian Christian-Nasrani ("Nazarene") family, this masterfully crafted romantic tale touchingly tells the story of Solomon, an exceptionally warm and loving young man. He falls head over heels in love with Sofia, a traditional young woman bound by the traditions and belief system that her family follows. As a result, the relationship between Solomon and Sofia faces staunch and bitter resistance from her stepfather, Paul Pailokkaran. With many biblical allusions, this extraordinary love story follows the struggles of the couple, highlighting the destruction that can be caused by indulging in sensual pleasures.

Trivia:
The movie is based on the Malayalam novel 'Nammukku Graamangalil Chennu Raappaarkkaam', (Let us go and dwell in the villages) by K. K. Sudhakaran (1986).

The title of this film and the novel is based on a passage from the Biblical book of The Song of Solomon or Song of Songs, Chapter 7:12: "Let us get up early to the vineyards." The protagonist quotes this passage at one point during the film.

This film is especially noted for the brilliance performance of Thilakan and also for the flowing and warm thematic music by Johnson. Mohanlal's portrayal of Solomon is considered to be one of the most matured romantic characters in Malayalam Cinema.
