Vinayachandran and Sindhu are a happily married couple who enjoy romancing. Vinayachandran joins a public school as a Plus Two teacher. In the strict disciplined school, unlike other teachers, Vinayachandran is friendly and conducts enjoyable classes. The students gets easily carried away by his amiable nature.
One day, Sindhu's sister Bala visits them and asks Sindhu's permission for leaving to the United States for her higher studies, which Sindhu disapproves bluntly. Later, Sindhu leaves for a professional tour, leaving Vinayachandran and Bala alone. Meanwhile, Bala tries to get intimate with Vinayachandran which annoys him and he asks her why she is behaving so childishly for which she replies that Sindhu was the only one she had in this world but now as she has married Vinayachandran, she is all alone. Vinayachandran understands her state of mind consoles her and asks her to behave like his sister. As the story progresses, much to Vinayachandran's dismay, Bala's behaviour gets more strange day by day.
Vinayachandran also loses his job because of his in-academic style of teaching. Sindhu after her trip returns and Bala confesses that she tried to get intimate with Vinayachandran and hence intended to replace Sindhu. Sindhu is devastated by this revelation and stops talking to Vinayachandran. Vinayachandran gets his job back as his students stood up for him and asks the authority not to fire him. Sindhu agrees for Bala's US plans. Vinayachandran joins them at the railway station and together the couple bids good bye for Bala.
