Arakkalam Peeli, a veteran thief, adept in creating different masks was killed by Eapen with an indirect support from the former's son Arakkalam Kuttappan. Kuttappan's son, Baby, who happens to witness the murder runs away from the village. He later becomes a smuggler and robber.

Several years later Kuttappan is sent to prison by a cunning Eapen who is then a rich businessman over an issue related to loan. This causes Baby to return to his village. He gives him gold biscuits to settle the matter and bails out his father. That night Baby manages to steal the same biscuits from Eapen's house by pretending to be his eldest son Thommi. He uses a mask just as his grandfather used to. After handing over the biscuits to Mumbai-based gangster he decides to settle in his village. He stays with Meenakshi, his late grandfather's ex-lover, and seldom meets his father (as he is unable to completely forgive him due to his involvement in his grandfather's murder). He vows to destroy the wealth of Eapen and how he does it forms the rest of the story.
