Chakkattutharayil Gopan alias Aadu Gopan is a businessman and tourist guide residing in Kuttanad, who don't have a satisfying life. He is the sole breadwinner of his family, which consists of his mother and three brothers: Maniyan, Vijayan and Suku. The three older brothers are good for nothing loafers who spend their day drinking and do small jobs like threatening people for a living. They have many enemies, who take revenge on the helpless Gopan instead. Gopan also has a business rival, Kavalakkal Kuriyachan.

One day, Gopan manages to get some tourists. But he has to provide them some entertainment. He approaches his friend Mamachan who does multiple jobs such as travel agency and marriage brokering. Mamachan's attitude of doing everything earned him the name 'Enthinum Eathinum Mamachan' (Anything and Everything Mamachan). Mamachan arranges a dancer, Kainakary Jayasree for Gopan's guests. Jayasree's mother Revamma, a former drama actress, is a bit dubious of Gopan and tries to increase their payment day by day. She even fakes an illness with Jayasree for the money. During one such dance, the police come searching for a missing girl. Gopan tells them to search in Kuriyachan's boat and it ends up getting Kuriyachan arrested for immoral trafficking.

Gopan begins to panic, as he thinks Kuriyachan's men will come for revenge. After some comic events involving Kuriyachan, Gopan gets beaten by Kuriyachan's men while returning Jayasree. In revenge, Gopan's brothers goes to Kuriyachan's house and beats Kuriyachan and his men. After Gopan recovers, he falls for Jayasree. But they get arrested for a fake human trafficking case, which was planned by Kuriyachan. They manage to escape unscathed, after Gopan's brothers and friends threaten the policeman with evidence of bribes and his affairs with other women.

Sometime later, Maniyan suddenly has a chest pain and is taken to the hospital. The doctor informs Gopan that the pain was only gas. But Gopan convinces the doctor to tell his brothers that it was a heart attack, sensing an opportunity to change his brothers' way of living. The doctor convinces Maniyan, Suku and Vijayan that they could also have a heart attack if they don't change their habits. The fear of death has the brothers changing their habits and becoming hardworking men. They enter the boat racing team with Maniyan being the team captain. The brothers are also married to their subsequent crushes.

Meanwhile, Revamma, who was against Gopan's and Jayasree's relation, tries many tricks to separate them but is forced to give up. But Kuriyachan's vengeance increases as he was sacked from team captain spot and replaced by Maniyan. He wrecks the race boat and burns Gopan's house boat, which is the only source of income for Gopan's family. He also cheats Revamma, who was trying to sell her home. Heartbroken, Revamma suffers from a heart attack and dies. Not wanting to bring his brothers back to their old rowdy life, Gopan and his friends go to exact revenge. They bash up Kuriyachan and his men and leave him to be beaten up to death by the remaining villagers for destroying the race boat.

In the final scene, Gopan and Jayasree are shown on a boat, planning for live together to start a new life ahead.
