With splashes of comedy, this socially relevant drama delves into the life of Krishnamurthy (Mohanlal), a poor but brainy Brahmin, who is sent with an assistant (Innocent) to work as a site officer for the Calcutta Construction Company in a particularly grim place known as Vietnam Colony.
This place, set in Kerala, is under the control of gangs and slumlords who protect a small bunch of illegal squatters on the company’s land. The task of the two employees is to persuade the squatters to vacate the land so that the company can build on it.
Although he initially wishes to implement the company's plans, he slowly becomes involved in the life of the people living in the colony leading Krishnamurthi to switch sides and help the poor people assert their rights in the face of both the company and the gangs. Will he succeed in single-handedly defeating his powerful opponents against all odds, and ensure that the impoverished residents of Vietnam Colony get justice.
