Embedded with clever wit, this offbeat drama follows the adventures of Zackaria (Jayram), Matthukutty (Mohanlal), and Benoy (Dileep) who are the sons of three friends who parted twenty five years ago. After teaming up to fulfil a common goal, they set out for a jackpot casino in Goa, as this casino used to be owned by their fathers. However, their actions earn them the wrath of Gowda, a criminal mastermind who has a monopoly on all the casinos in Goa. Unbeknownst to them initially, Gowda is also their fathers' murderer and the one who destroyed their families. How will the three friends combat the might of Gowda? Will they succeed in avenging the injustice done to their fathers'?
