Set against a deeply religious background, this multi-layered horror story delves into the twists and turns in the lives of Kumaran, a descendant of Puthoor Illam, a traditional family that practices positive tantricmagic under blessings of their family god Lord Garuda, popularly known as Sri Krishnaparunthu (The Eagle of Krishna) and Hanuman. The family is widely respected for their ability to revive near-dead people due to venomous snake bites using the sacred water through invoking Garuda. Pappu (Jagannatha Varma), who is the current magician of the family, foresees his death and decides to transfer all his knowledge to his nephew Kumaran Thampi (Mohanlal). Kumaran, whose only interest is wine and women reluctantly accepts the decision, as the magician must vow to maintain extreme celibacy. Pappu transfers all his knowledge to Kumaran and dies. Thus Kumaran becomes the next magician of the locality famous for curing snake bites and warding off negative spirits. One night Kumaran goes to his ancestral palace for collecting manuscripts on traditional magic. On his return, he encounters the ghost of Lakshmikutty who tries to attract Kumaran. Lakshmikutty died of snake bite while having sexual intercourse with Kumaran earlier. Using his magical powers Kumaran gains control over the ghost. Lakshmikutty vows to Kumaran that she will not disturb him till he keeps his Brahmacharya. Will Kumaran succeeded in maintaining his vow of celibacy or will he succumb to the temptation placed before him by dark powers? Will the powerful ghost of Lakshmikutty return to haunt him? What means will Kumaran employ to defeat his enemies and what will the repercussions and consequences of his choices be?
