Bobby (Jayasurya) is an impoverished mute who earns a living by painting billboards for his boss (Cochin Haneefa). While painting, he falls in love with Gopika (Kavya Madhavan), a rich girl who cannot hear or speak and lives with her father (Sai Kumar) and interpreter (Kalpana). When she attends a show performed by Bobby and his friends, Gopika begins to fall in love with Bobby, once she learns that he is also a mute. But in order to win Gopika's admiration, Bobby pretends he can speak and puts on a show in front of Gopika's interpreter. Believing that Bobby can speak, Gopika finds her affection for him waning. She eventually learns the truth that Bobby cannot speak and falls in love with him. Unfortunately, Gopika is betrothed to Shyam (Indrajith), a rich young man, whom she hates. Since Gopika's family is against her relationship with Bobby, they elope.

Shyam's family sends Chellappa (Rajan P. Dev), a police officer, to kill Bobby and bring back Gopika. Meanwhile, Gopika and Bobby hide with a street performing group led by Moopan (Mala Aravindan), but are eventually found by Chellappa.

When Chellappa captures Bobby and Gopika, he brings them both back to a hut near a cliff edge, where he beats Bobby unconscious and tries to rape Gopika. When Gopika knocks Chellappa out, she finds Bobby lying on the floor covered in blood. Thinking he is dead, she decides to walk up to the cliff by the house and jump off. Gopika's family arrives and sees her climbing the cliff and shouts for her to stop. As Gopika is deaf she does not hear their shouting and continues climbing. Bobby wakes up and sees Gopika walking up to the cliff. He runs after her and tries to shout but she does not hear him. To get Gopika's attention, Bobby picks up a lime he finds on a nearby spike and throws it at her; she turns around and sees Bobby. Gopika runs toward Bobby and they embrace.



Mohan Sithara wrote the music for the film's songs and the lyrics were written by Yusafali Kecheri and Vinayan. The music was distributed by Surya Cini Audios, Bluemoon Audios and Rafa International.
