The film revolves around T.P. Balagopalan (Mohanlal),a lower scale employee at Falcon products. He owns some land which his elder sister and her husband try to grab from him. He falls in love with a school teacher Anitha (shobana), whom he meets in one of his marketing trysts for falcon products. He loses his land when he tries to help her father in a litigation. However he loses his job due to labor union issues. His younger sister, not being able to get married in a traditional arranged marriage set up, gets married to his friend Narayanankutty (Maniyanpilla Raju). His elder sister and family leave his house when they find out that he does not have the land anymore. Meanwhile, Anitha's father wins the court case and becomes rich.
