Michael and his family stay at the house of Annie (Divya Unni) and her grandmother (Sukumari), while they work on the farm. The farm struggles due the lack of availability of water, and due to Michael's vices (gambling and alcoholism). To support Michael, his brother Chandy (Mammootty) comes to Maravathoor. Chandy is an active party worker in Southern Kerala and acts as a muscle for his party's needs. His arrival changes the fortunes of the farm and halts the activities of Nedumudi Venu.

To support Chandy's activities, Antappan (Kalabhavan Mani) and friends (party workers/goons) arrives as well from Chandy's hometown. To eliminate Chandy's threat, Nedumudi Venu spreads a rumour of an illicit relationship between Michael's wife, Mary and Chandy. Evil plans of the rich man comes to a fruition when one morning Maravathoor wakes to the news that Chandy and Mary have run away together.
