The team responsible for the hit His Highness Abdullah (1990) followed on with a story about a well-known Carnatic singer Raman (Venu) whose popularity wanes because of his addiction to drink. His protege and younger brother Gopi (Mohanlal) is forced to substitute for him when, during a performance, Raman is booed off. This causes a rift between the brothers and Gopi gives up singing until a now-chastened Raman persuades him to make a comeback at an important music festival. However, Raman is killed by a truck and Gopi has to keep this a secret in order not to ruin the marriage changes of his mute sister. Gopi is later accused of having murdered his brother. The film was known mainly for its music and for the songs by star playback singer Yesudas.
