Plot[edit]

The movie begins with Ramesh (Atharvaa) waking up in a hangover and remembering the events of the previous day. After a breakup with his girlfriend Madhu (Mishti), he is sad and drinks a lot along with his friend Nandhu (Karunakaran). On his advice, Ramesh calls for a female escort and sneaks her into his apartment. Ramesh unexpectedly has to step out of his house due to his neighbor Devi's (Devadarshini) emergency situation. So he asks the escort Nina (Anaika Soti) to wait inside his house, promising to come back soon. While he returns, he finds she is dead under mysterious circumstances. Ramesh is shocked and tries to find details about her since he does not know her name. He sees restaurant receipts in her bag, checks the CCTV footages, and finds another man had accompanied her prior to her meeting him. From her cell phone, he finds her house address, travels to Palakkad, and asks Nandhu to stay behind and guard the dead body. He is not able to find any fruitful information from Nina's family and leaves, but Nina's sister makes a call secretly to Sekar (John Vijay) and informs him about Ramesh.

Sekar tracks Ramesh down and asks about Nina and Ravi (Prinz Nithik), who was accompanying her. He says Ravi was a henchman and had usurped money and documents from the politician for whom he was working for. Ramesh escapes from Sekar. Nandhu calls him with new information about a series of numbers he found from Nina's purse and also says he is hiding with the dead body in the attic because of Ramesh's intruding neighbors - Devi's husband Ram (Chetan) and his comical father-in-law (Manobala), who came here to use his gas stove for emergency purposes and would not leave. After making them leave, Ramesh goes to a railway station to find that the cloak room lockers are the series of numbers Nina had noted down. Coincidentally, he sees Ravi opening those lockers, beats him up, and asks why he killed Nina. Ravi says he escaped with his boss's money and picked up Nina to escort him. During his stay with her, fake policemen threatened and looted all the money. He finds that all of this was part of Nina's plan and that she had taken the money, hid it in the cloak room lockers, and left to Chennai. So he found her, and after getting information about the money's location, he poisoned her drink as revenge. It is then that Ramesh had met Nina and she unfortunately ended up dying at his apartment.

After recording Ravi's confession, Ramesh strikes a deal with him that he should get rid of Nina's body from his house and takes him in his car. Ravi tries to escape, and after a chase, he accidentally falls to his death. Disappointed, Ramesh returns to Chennai and plans to dispose of the dead body himself and along with Nandhu, he drives Nina's body to the place Ravi died. Keeping both the dead people together along with the money, he informs Sekar of the whereabouts of Ravi, Nina, and the money. Sekar comes to the location, takes back his boss's money, and disposes Ravi and Nina's bodies in a nearby brick kiln. Finally relieved of all the unwanted trouble, Ramesh and Nandhu get back to their homes in Chennai. Ramesh patches up with Madhu when Nandhu informs that Sekar and his men are killed in a road accident. Ramesh and Nandhu are overjoyed, since there is no living proof of their unwitting involvement in Ravi and Nina's murders.
