The threesome who lend reason to the title are Aravindan (Jayaram), Chandu (Mukesh) and Joy (Sreenivasan). They value friendship over everything else, even family, and for this reason, Chandu resists the advances of Aravindan's sister Uma (Divya Unni). When the trio take up a painter's job at a mansion, Aravindan falls in love with Padmini (Meena), who lives there and Padmini's jealous cousin makes him believe that his overtures are reciprocated. When the truth is revealed and Padmini rejects him outright, Chandu stands up for his friend and speaks ill of her. This makes her swear to separate the friends.
After the marriage, Aravindan realises the hand of Abhinaya behind all the mishaps and Padmini too realises Chandu is innocent. Then the marriage of Chandu and Uma is arranged. This is not liked by Uma's aunt Ammayi (Sukumari) who leads to a break in friendship between the protagonists. Subsequently friendship between Aravindan and Chandu breaks, and in an accident from the hand of Chandru Aravindan is paralysed. Years later, Chandu is brought to Aravindan by Joy, and amidst all the accusations that Chandu hears, an emotionally overwhelmed Aravindan shows the first sign of movement, a tear falling from his eye, since his accident.
