Set in the orthodox social setup of Central Kerala of 1980s, this movie tells the story of the family of Mathai Kutty (Prathapachandran). A widower, the wealthy father of 3 has been crestfallen by the fact that his only daughter Gracy (Roopa of Oru Thalai Ragam) married a hindu Menon (MG Soman).
He has 2 other sons, Peter and Rex (played by Mohanlal and Rahman Respectively). Rex is a playboy, while Peter is a responsible businessman whose only mode of entertainment outside of work is to drink his heart out. Menon has a sister, Devi (Radhika), who while living with her brother strikes up a great camaraderie and relationship with the brothers of her sister in law.
Over time, Peter's friendship with Devi starts blossoming into a desire to make her the life partner. Nevertheless he couldn't muster up the courage to let the world know about it, primarily fearing Mathaikutty's objection, and also , prompted by the vicar of the local denomination, played by Thilakan. It was around this time a Hindu friend of Peter - Kumar (Sreenath) - moves to town and they decide the marry Devi off to Kumar. Kumar dies in an accident shortly after the marriage also causing a miscarriage for Devi. Dejected with life, she decides to dedicate the rest of her life to Social service.
Peter eventually opens up his heart to Devi, who reacts in a not so positive way. After yet another accident and a few tense moments everything ends up fine with Peter and Devi getting back together.
Rahman steals the show as Rex. Nadia Moithu is wasted as an eye candy in only her second movie. Sankaradi, Soman , Roopa, Sreenath and the rest of the cast does the usual fabulous job. Mohanlal is graceful and gives a subdued performance and Radhika comes across as extremely cute. Legendary actors Jagathy Sreekumar and Bahadoor appears in an inconsequential scene, possibly edited out in the final cut.
Too many cliches for the audience of today, but had the necessary ingredients for a successful movie in 1985. The movie of course couldn't live up to the beautiful name it had, perhaps one of the most nostalgic names one could have for a movie. Jerry Amaldev's songs are timeless classics.
