Das (Mammootty) is a rich and spoilt playboy who drives to his bungalow in Kodaikanal with a callgirl Jaysree (Swapna). The bungalow is looked after by caretaker Parameswaran (Sankaradi) and his Tamil wife Kannamma (Mallika Sukumaran). Parameswaran has a son Gopan (Rajkumar) who stays away from the place and does guide work for foreigners. Parameswaran has told both of them that Jaysree is Das' wife to avoid ill-fame to the family name. Das feels he owns Jaysree and does not waste a single opportunity to ridicule her profession. Other than sex, there is no emotional bond between them. A family friend of Das' late father, Panikkar (Jose Prakash) and family drop by to meet Das' wife which makes Das uncomfortable. Though Jaysree refuses at first to play the role, she then acts as a dutiful wife before them. Panikkar's family consists of his wife Chinnammu Amma (Kaviyoor Ponnamma), father-in-law Rao Bahadur Shankaramenon (Premji), and two daughters, elder one being Nirmala (Beena) married to engineer Ramakrishnan (Lalu Alex) and younger one Sridevi (Rajalakshmi) who is separated from her husband. Two relations build up simultaneously. On one side, Sridevi is able to bring back the fondness of music in Das and they spent time understanding each other. On the other side, Jaysree feels Gopan is like herself, a victim of helplessness and she becomes attached to him. Things take a turn when, after a moment of passion, Jaysree tells the truth about herself to Gopan and he feels a revulsion towards her. Meanwhile, Das confesses his womanising nature to Sridevi and then proposes to her but she is unable to commit to him. Finally, Jaysree leaves the house and Gopan joins her in her journey. Sridevi's separated husband Vijayshankar (Ratheesh) apologises to her for his insensitive behaviour and she goes back to him. In the end, Das drives off from the place, all alone.
