Meneparambil is a feudal peasant family consisting mainly of bachelor males committed to their caste identity. The only woman in the house is their ageing mother who laments the absence of decent female help in the kitchen. The two eldest sons, as well as an uncle, all bachelors ‘past their prime’, keep up appearances while awaiting suitably acceptable marriages. Youngest son Harikrishen (Jayaram) goes to Tamil Nadu for a job, falls for Pavizham (Shobhana) and marries her. When he brings her home, he seeks to avoid problems with caste difference by introducing her as a maid servant he brought from Pollanchi to help his mother. Several sequences follow, which are meant to be funny, showing all the men in the family turning into sexual predators. Eventually, when she has endeared herself to the family, a kidnap and rescue drama enables the truth to be told and ensures the happy ending.
