Story thread :Ganga (Shobhana) and Nakulan (Suresh Gopi), returned at the ancestral "Tharavadu" mansion of the latter. Ignoring the protests of their superstitious uncle Thampi (Nedumudi Venu), they move into the mansion, when unusual and supernatural events begin to happen. Suspicion falls on Sreedevi (Vinaya Prasad), Nakulan's cousin, who is known to be suffering from depression who was his Murappennu, still a spinster. Dr. Sunny Joseph (Mohanlal), a frolicsome psychiatrist and Nakulan's close friend, is called in to investigate. Soon it becomes evident that Ganga, affected by multiple personality disorder (MPD), is behind the mystery, haunted by a troubled past.

The mansion that Nakulan and Ganga were living in was occupied in ancient times by a cruel Thampi chieftain, who had imprisoned a famous Bharatnatyam dancer, Nagavalli from Tamilnadu. There she pines away for her lover Ramanathan. Ganga who grew up listening to folklore and ghost stories from her grandmother identifies with the character Nagavalli. This empathy gradually leads to psychosis. When Ganga turns into Nagavalli, the characters of the household turn into the characters of a bygone era in her eyes.

Sunny trying to solve this mysterious complex problem...
