Balakrishnan ("Bala") teaches history at a primary school in a hillside community. In the same school, Nirmala was recently hired for a temporary position as a music teacher. Despite falling in love with Nirmala, Balakrishnan is too shy to admit his feelings. Bala decides to go with Nirmala to her ancestral village in an effort to grow closer to her. On the way, Bala runs across his old friend Babu, whom he hasn't seen in a long time.

Bala and Nirmala are brought to a hotel by Babu. Bala calls an ambulance when Nirmala passes out there. Nirmala requests Bala to drop her off at the bus stop once she has recovered. Bala agrees after observing her distress. When Teena arrives, she claims that her father's close friend, Papachan, has been pressuring her to sleep with one of his wealthy friends. She approaches Bala, terrified, for assistance. Teena accepts Bala and Nirmala's invitation to go with them.

Teena gets hurt when the group is attacked by goons on their route. Teena is alleges that she is assaulted by Bala. Even Nirmala accuses Bala to protect herself, which really hurts him. Bala is imprisoned.

Bala encounters Nandakumar (referred to as "Nanda") on the bus after leaving prison and tells him everything that happened. The two get along quite well, and Nanda gets Bala a great job. Bala is unaware that Nanda is about to marry Nirmala.

After a series of incidents, Nirmala and Bala finally cross paths. Nirmala is questioned by Bala about why she made the false claim about being attacked. According to Nirmala, Papachan persuaded her into doing so. The confusion has been resolved. When Nanda finds out about Nirmala and Bala's relationship, he asks Nirmala if she still has feelings for him. Nirmala, overcome with emotion, says yes. Nanda walks off from the pair, giving them time to make up.
