Udaya Varma’s wife Bhagirathi Thampuratti(Kaviyoor Ponnamma) has fallen into depression after the untimely death of their son Unni. She is locked up at home and looked after by Udaya Varma’s daughter Radha(Gautami). Ravi Varma and group fears that Udaya Varma might will his wealth to Radha, being his daughter, who is believed to be born of Thampuran’s illicit relationship with his maid. The group is helped by Cheriyachan Thampuran(Thikkurissy), a blind cousin of Thampuran, who also eyes at King’s wealth. He advises the Group on the plans to eliminate the King upon condition of sharing the wealth with him. As per his advice Ravi Varma travels to Mumbai in search of a killer. There he meets Syed Ali(Mammukoya) who helps him. He introduces Ravi Varma to Abdhullah(Mohanlal), who is a singer in Mumbai. Abdhullah is in need of money and upon persuasion from Ali, goes to Kerala planning to kill Thampuran.
Abdhullah disguises himself as Ananthan Namboodiri and meets Thampuran stating that he is Ravi Varma’s friend who wants to study about the palace. Thampuran does not like this, however allows him to stay a couple of days at the Palace. Bhagirathi thinks Ananthan is Unni and shows stages of recovery from mental disorder with his presence.
