Laden with laughs, this socially relevant fantasy drama delves into the fluctuating fortunes in the life of Parthasarathy (Jayaram, popularly called Parthan, lives in Krishnapuram village. Parthan is constantly clashing with his uncle Falgunan Thampy (Jagathy Sreekumar), who is the Panchayath President. Falgunan is least bothered about the welfare of the people; rather, he is more keen in grabbing the assets of the village temple, which has been locked for many years by the court over a dispute of ownership. Falgunan, also the secretary of temple's ruling committee, believes that the temple belongs to his family, while Parthan and his friends like Sulaiman (Kottayam Nazeer) and Poonkodi (Sona) argue that the temple belongs to the village. Into this situation comes Falgunan's daughter Sathyabhama (Sreedevika), an advocate, who pretends to be in love with Parthan. In fact, her intention is to help her father win the temple dispute in court. In the ensuing fracas, Parthan, who begins an agitation, is sentenced to one month's imprisonment for contempt of court. After Parthan is released from jail, the film takes an interesting turn. Parthan nearly dies after consuming spurious liquor in Guruvayoor, but miraculously returns to life. After this near-death experience, Lord Krishna is present to help him in the form of Madhavan (Mukesh), pretending to be his college friend and both start fighting Parthan's uncle. Madhavan helps Parthan to clear all the problems of his life. Will Madhavan succeed in convincing Sathyabhama of Parthan's sincerity and her own father's machinations? Can Madhavan ensure that good wins over evil once more, and that communal harmony reigns?
