With the film, Lohithadas is introducing two new actors into Malayalam – the hero Vinu Mohan and the heroine Bhama. Vinu Mohan, the grand son of Kottarakkara Shreedharan Nair debuts playing the character of Mohana Krishanan in the film. He is the son of C .K, a famous dramatist in the film.

Forwarded by one of his father's friend lyricist Kaithapram, he arrives at the Kovilakom, headed by Rama Varma Thampuram, a pious aged man who was a dear student of Chembai Vaidhya Natha Bhagavathar.
Mohana Krishnan was looking fir a job at Kovilakom, but the financial position of the Tharavadu was not so bright that they can offer any job for him. But Mohana Krishnan had bigger personal problems that won’t allow him to go back. And in these circumstances Ramavarma Thampuran debuts him to assist the priest at the temple owned by the Kovilakam. Nedumudi, who is a regular in Lohithadas films, says “In this film, I enact the role of an old priest in a temple owned by a Kovilakam that is in dire straits. Although the elderly priest's health is declining, he wants to continue. That is when a young Namboothiri youth is appointed. He doesn't know anything about mantras and rituals. The old priest gives him necessary training and entrusts him with the rituals of the temple while keeping a supervisory role for himself”.
Once the Keezh Santhi comes, the prospects of the temple brighten as he works day and night to keep the rituals of the temple. The young priest attracts the attention of many young women, including the heroine Bhama, who is an orphan, the daughter of lady who committed suicide for his misdeeds. Eventually the youngsters fall in love.
According to the director Lohithadas,’ Nivedhyam is a romantic film that centres on the developments in an old Kovilakam whose members had once played progressive role in the locality and the temple associated with it.
