The film follows the life of CP Swathanthryan, son of freedom fighter Chembakassery Parameswaran Pillai. His uncle, Soman Thampi, is a crooked man who eyes for CP's wealth and is a constant troublemaker for him. He is in hook or crook mode to win the legal suit filed by CP, the loss of which will result in reinstating the wealth he forcibly obtained. CP, on the other hand, wants to be famous at any cost and does many things which pave the way for many hilarious events.
