This masterfully crafted drama intricately depicts how the fateful rhythm of life, even for a master drummer, is at the same moment disrupted and harmonized by the love, passion, jealousy, hate and spite of those around. Unequaled in the art of playing the Chenda (Indian drums), Unni (Jayaram), and Nalini (Kadambari), peerless in Mohiniyattam, are drawn to each other by an affection that transcends the devotion to their arts and the love for each other.
The pulse of their passion cannot hold up against the tumults of Unni’s life. A brother and a father figure, whose love sours to jealousy and hate, a wife who despises his drumming and a mother from whom the truth about his birth is not forthcoming, all hasten the tempo of a mental imbalance rooted in Unni’s childhood to an inevitable dark end.
