The ghost-fearing Raghava (Raghava Lawrence) and his happy family comprising his mother (Kovai Sarala), brother (Sriman), sister-in-law Kamakshi (Devadarshini), and their daughter Pappa (Yuvasri Lakshmi) set out to Coimbatore for a family function, and there, the whole family, including Raghava's cousins Priya (Vedhika), Kavya (Oviya), and Divya (Nikki Tamboli), witness strange and scary incidents, as well as Raghava getting possessed. The subsequent events lead to the revelation of another character named Kaali (Raghava Lawrence) and how an evil minister named Shankar (Tarun Arora) and his brother Bhavani (Kabir Duhan Singh) ruined Kaali, his lover Rosie (Ri Djavi Alexander), and their ashram.
