The story revolves around a house owner, Gopalakrishna Panikkar, who is struggling with debt incurred during the wedding of his two sisters. He needs to force his tenants to vacate, so that the house can be sold and the debt repaid. The tenants do not want to leave for reasons of their own. How the various situations unfold and what happens to Gopalakrishna Panikker and the tenants is what the movie is all about.
The only way Gopalakrishnan can escape from certain bankruptcy is to sell the property he owns in the city and use the proceeds to settle his debts. To do that, he has to evict his tenants from there first. Unfortunately for him, his tenant is the feisty Meera and her family, who absolutely refuses to vacate the house. Gopalakrishnan uses an obscure clause in the contract to take up residence at the house, and tries his best to smoke his tenants out and takes help of his friend Sub Inspector Rajendran(Sreenivasan) to evict them out. But Rajendran falls in love with Meera and refuses to evict her.
Gopalakrishnan plans Rajendran to get married with Meera inorder to evict her with her family but it flops as when it is revealed by Meera's mother that she was a mental patient due to the death of her father. Much hilarity ensues later and Meera at last, on knowing about the extent of Gopalakrishnan's problems, vacates the house without reservations and leaves. But Gopalakrishnan calls her back and decides that this will be their house.
