This evocative psychological drama follows the life of Mohanachandra Poduval (Jayaram), a lawyer, also working as a plumber, caterer, electrical worker, driver and chenda player at festival programs. He is engaged to Sujatha (Sukanya), a music and dance teacher, who is the daughter of Achu Marar (Oduvil Unnikrishnan). Rameshchandran (Dileep), his younger brother, is in medical school.
Mohanachandran is hopeful that, once his brother becomes a doctor, his financial troubles will be reduced. Radhakrishnan (Innocent), his brother-in-law and a police constable, brings an alliance of his senior officer, a police inspector for his sister Remani, which gets almost fixed.
Things go smoothly until Devaprabha (Manju Warrier) and her grandfather Rama Varma arrive in the village. The heiress of the royal family, Devaprabha forms a strong relationship with Mohanachandran. Devapriya was suffering from depression after the death of her only brother Sudev Varma and came to the village as part of a treatment. Mohanchandran helps her become almost normal. However, Sujatha, his fiancée, finds it intolerable and complains to him. Slowly things go out of control as Devaprabha turns stubborn and possessive about Mohanachandran. One day, he flatly refuses to accompany her, adding that he doesn't want to see her.
Devaprabha again shows changes in behavior, making Ramavarma fear that her mental problems are returning. He asks his son Balarama Varma (Murali), a rich businessman in Bangalore to come. He proposes that she marry Mohanachandran. But Mohanachandran is unwilling. Balarama Varma approaches Achu Marar and Sujatha and asks them to leave Mohanachandran to help his daughter.
