Varghese is a Kalari master, and Shyam, his favourite disciple. One day, he comes to his master, declaring his love for Maya. He says that her parents have kept her under house arrest, and he needs his help to rescue her.
Varghese kidnaps Maya and brings her to Shyam, but Shyam tries to kill her. Varghese understands that Shyam is not her lover, and she is the only witness in another homicide which involves Shyam. But Maya tells Varghese that Shyam is innocent. Shyam, who still does not know this, pursues her. Varghese conceals her and brings the real culprit out by means of a rare locket that Maya remembers the killer wearing.
