Sunny in major roles.[1][2] The film won the National Film Award for Best Film on Other Social Issues.


The film is a socio-centric story of the education system that existed in the period 1980s to 1990s in Kerala. Divakaran, in search of a good job acquires fake certificates from Mysore TTC and becomes a teacher in a government aided lower primary school run by a corrupt manager. The thatched school is deplorable in every condition. Children mainly come for the food that is served. The teachers come mainly for getting the money and do not care about the kids or the facilities in the school.

The corrupt manager runs the school as a business for getting grants and making money from appointments. In the climax, the hero realizes his mistake from guilt which was seeded by his father and took form when the dilapidated school causes the death of 3 students. In the turn of events, Divakaran surrenders to the police for using a fake teaching certificate.



The music was composed by Shyam and the lyrics were written by Chunakkara Ramankutty.
