Mohanlal plays a prodigal Brahmin, Jagan, returning to his old village after several colourful years in Bombay, amid underworld gangs and general sleaze. He discovers that his homestead ('illam')is now taken care of by Unni Maya (Manju) and her impoverished father, Ezhuthachan (Sankaraadi), an old percussionist. Jagan finds the simple life in the village much more appealing than his wasteful days in Bombay, and desires to settle there for the rest of his life. Manju is in love with him, and very jealous of a sophisticated Bombay girlfriend of Jagan's who has just come to lodge at the 'illam' for a while.
Of course, the movie ends predictably, with Jagan smashing the living daylights out of the village baddies and sinister minds; and finally marrying Unni Maya. The movie itself is not the best to happen to Malayalam cinema, but Manju's portayal of the jealous, impulsive Unni Maya was classic and worth watching. Mohanlal, despite the common storyline, does well, and appears convincing enough as the gangster turned nice-guy-about-town.
