Balachandran Unnithan (Jayaram) is a singer who falls in love with Ambika(Sudha Rani), a singer from his own troupe and they both get married. Balachandran's family longs for a male child to inherit the family's wealth, but his elder brothers have only female children. When Ambika becomes pregnant, Balachandran realizes that his wife is carrying a daughter, and not a son.

Later, he meets his old classmate and best friend, Padmarajan, whose wife Hema is also pregnant, bearing a male child. However, their babies are swapped by mistake by Balu's mother soon after the delivery. Both Padmarajan and Balu must keep this as a secret to see their children. When Balu's relatives discover this, the babies get kidnapped by the antagonists.
