Embedded with terrifying suspense and tantalising thrill, this mysterious tale delves into ancient secrets and paranormal forces, that are revealed through the lives of two young girls and a newly married couple. Two young girls, Anupama (Samvrutha Sunil) and Rahael (Sherin), rent an old palace and are disturbed by the presence of a strange lady who moves around their place. They are adamant on finding out the truth about her. The palace's manager (Mala Aravindan), also a witchcraft practitioner, is keen to help them. As the girls find it difficult to move forward in their enquiry, the second story begins. The second story follows when Jeeva (played by Jayaram), a police officer, falls in love with Bala (Jyothirmayi), who is a budding writer. Their professions intervene with their personal lives, preventing them from any serious romancing prior to marriage. Soon after their marriage, Jeeva receives a job transfer to the high ranges of Idukki. Bala is excited at the prospect, as she feels the salubrious mountain atmosphere will help nurture her writing skills. Jeeva is also looking forward to it, as a perfect opportunity to rekindle their lost romance. However, despite the positive atmosphere, life at the bungalow soon takes an unexpected twist. Life for the couple turns uneasy, as Bala senses someone, apart from the two of them, inhabiting the bungalow. Haunted by a perpetual paranoia, she wakes up most nights to nightmares. Jeeva, concerned with how their marriage is turning out, finally agrees to investigate. The investigation leads him into the unknown realms of the bungalow's shady past, unravelling a forgotten history, thus leading to a startling realisation of who the "third someone" is.

This movie was shot primarily at exotic locations around Peerumedu in Idukki, Kerala.

This movie created history by becoming the first digital Malayalam movie. It was created by Martin Sebastian, produced by Benzy Martin, distributed by Emil & Eric Digital Films, and directed by V. K. Prakash. The digital technology was provided in Kerala by Emil & Eric Digital Private Limited, a Thrissur-based company engaged in the production and distribution of digital movies. Nearly eighty theatres in urban, semi-urban and rural areas across the Indian state of Kerala were equipped with digital transponders to receive the film via satellite.

The movie is noted for being the first high-definition (HD) cinema to be digitally distributed to theatres via satellite.

It was the first Malayalam film to be shot entirely using HD cameras. The new technology was developed by Mumbai-based DG2L Technologies. The company was the first to introduce an MPEG-4-based digital cinema distribution and presentation system. DG2L has delivered more than 800 of its cinema systems to UFO Moviez, and approximately 700 of them are now installed in theaters throughout India.
