Set against the traditional backdrop of the Vedic religion, this family-oriented drama delves into the trials and triumphs in the life of Devadathan Chemmathiripadu (Narendra Prasad), a vedic scholar, who is widely respected by everyone. He successfully completed Somayagam and has gained the title Somayajippadu. Somayajippadu has two sons, Somadathan (Suresh Gopi) and Chithrabhanu (Jayaram). While Somadathan left for Delhi to become a journalist, Chitrabhanu stayed along with his father in order to assist him. Bhanu Namboothiri is now a chief priest in the nearby temple. During his Delhi days, Somadathan got attracted to atheism and became associated with several radical groups. One day, he returns to his village to meet up with his family. But, upon arriving home, he finds the daily rituals irritating and starts questioning them. He denounces Vedas as superstition and starts propagating atheism among the villagers. This creates a fundamental conflict between father and son that is sure to bring them on collision course. How will unfolding events impact the beliefs of Somadathan and that of his father?
