Luckily, George Kutty (Mukesh), the police inspector, happens to be the classmate of Vishwanathan, and gets him released.

Mohandas, his MD in the company one day has a visitor in his office, who again mistakes VIshwanathan for the criminal, which tragically for him, result in him losing his job. Will the hardship he faces due to his unfortunate likeness to the criminal continue to destroy the opportunities in his life? How will Viswanathan come to terms with having his life destroyed over no fault of its own?
