Plot[edit]

The film opens with a girl coming to see her parents getting possessed by a ghost.

The scene shifts to five friends who plan for a trip to Valparai. Aravind, initially reluctant to go, later accepts to have fun with his friends. They travel together when one of his friends, while clearing up his room, visualizes eerie things but refuses to tell his friends as he would be teased. They all reach Valparai and meet Valparai Varadhan, who gets things done for them.

Ayesha, the lover of their friend Ram, brings them dinner. Mysterious things occur, and the friends think that Krishna, Ram's brother, is possessed. Later, when they check the photo taken, they see Ram with them and understand that Ram is responsible for all the eerie things. When they go to Aravind to tell him about Krishna, they come to know that Aravind who is possessed by Ram and not Krishna. Ram narrates the story, telling that Aravind promised him to get permission for Ram from his parents to marry his girlfriend Ayesha. His parents did not accept her as she is a Muslim. Aravind tells Ram and Ayesha to stay at Valparai for few days, and by then his parents would accept. One day, Ram's parents make another arrangement for his wedding, but Ram calls and says that convincing his parents can never happen as they dislike Ayesha. Then later, Aravind receives a call from Rafiq that Ram has slit his hands and committed suicide. In order to avoid Ayesha getting hurt, Aravind hides it from her and goes to Ram's house.

The scene shifts to Aravind possessed by Ram, who tells that he needs only Aravind to be killed and will never do anything to his Krishna or the other three of them. The friends seek help from Varadhan and try to tie a holy string. After several attempts, they do it and bring Aravind back. They go to the place where Ayesha lived and are shocked to see that she has already committed suicide on knowing about Ram's death. It was her spirit who brought dinner for them.

On that day when they are about leave Valparai, they are confronted by Ram and Ayesha, Aravind says that he is ready to die for this friend and says the story. It was Ram's birthday, so to surprise him, Aravind had told him to come to a place. The place is then revealed to be the register's office to get Ram and Ayesha married. Aravind wanted to surprise Ram by giving him a birthday gift, who is going to be Ayesha. So he mischievously lies, telling that his parents will not accept Ayesha and tells him to stop spoiling Ayesha's life. Taking this seriously, Ram commits suicide. Aravind feels sorry for him and asks to take his life but after forgiving him. Ram says he either has to kill Aravind or needs to live a life through Aravind. The screen goes blank, and after few weeks, Aravind is engaged to the same girl who was possessed in the beginning, which implies that Ram and Ayesha will live together with the help of Aravind and his wife.
