Plot

Anikkuttan (Fahadh Faasil) is a service mechanic who repairs all electronic devices from home. He is not mentally stable after his father Radhakrishnan (Jaffar Idukki) hanged himself to death when Anikkuttan’s sister Sandhya (Rajisha Vijayan) eloped with her lover Deepu on the night before her wedding. Anikkuttan hates his sister and refuses to talk or even let his mother go there. The reason for the hate is not just his father’s death, but also that Deepu, Sandhya’s husband is from a lower caste. Anikkuttan hates his neighbor Suni for the same reason and has frequent fights with them when Suni’s newborn daughter cries in the middle of the night and disturbs Anikkuttan’s sleep.

Govt gives public service announcements that everyone should move to shelter homes. Anikkuttan refuses to go stating that it’s just a publicity stunt from govt and that he has to share amenities with other castes. Anikkuttan gets an invite for Suni’s baby’s 28th day ceremony. There Anikkuttan gets particularly upset because his mom gifts a gold bangle to Suni’s kid without asking him and that makes his relationship with Suni’s family worse. That night, the rain gets worse and Suni and his family decide to move to a shelter home but Ani refuses to go and says he will stay back with his mom. But soon after Anikkuttan goes to bed, a landslide happens in that area and Anikkuttan gets trapped under the soil.

He becomes unconscious and is underwater when his dad comes into his dream and tells him that caste is only helpful until one is alive. Anikkuttan regains consciousness and fights back his way up. He calls the names of Suni, his mom, and others but no one responds. Suddenly he hears the sound of Ponni, Suni’s baby daughter and he fanatically searches for her. He finds the dead body of Divakaran on the way. He finally manages to find the baby and hold her close before the rescuers find them and take them to the hospital. All others’ lives are lost.

At the hospital, Sandhya and Deepu come to help Anikkuttan. He slowly walks towards the children’s ICU and finds Ponni there. He happily accepts Ponni as his daughter as she is the only one left for him.
