A young woman named Bhadra (Manju Warrier) wants to take revenge against a landlord, Natesan (Thilakan), who had murdered her parents 15 years before. She acts as if she is interested in him, while seducing his son Uthaman (Biju Menon) making Natesan jealous. She falls in love with Moosakutty (Abbas), a bangle seller and fisherman whose father was also murdered by Natesan. Ultimately, the father and son kill each other and Bhadra marries Moosakutty.



The songs were composed by M. G. Radhakrishnan for the lyrics of Kavalam Narayana Panicker. The film score was composed by Sharreth. Although Mohanlal has not acted in the film, he sang the song "Kaithappoovin" with K. S. Chithra.
