Plot

Oppol 26 August 2000 Remembering Balan K Nair OLD MALAYALAM CINEMA

The film revolves around Malu (Menaka), her younger brother Appu (Aravind) and Malu's husband Govindan (Balan K. Nair). Malu and 6-year old Appu were living together. When Malu is married to Govindan, an ex-military officer, she takes Appu with her to Govindan's house. Govindan is a bit annoyed, but adjusts to the situation to win over his wife, who is much younger to him. Appu on the other hand becomes jealous of Govindan and worries he will isolate him from his dear sister. He attacks Govindan during honeymoon and Malu scolds him. The boy runs away from the house and Malu becomes distressed. Towards the end it is revealed that Appu is actually the son of Malu. When Govindan discovers the truth, he tirelessly searches for the boy and brings him back.
