Summary: "Sukhamo Devi" tells the story of two good friends: Nandan (Shankar) and Sunny (Mohanlal). Both of them are singers who are in their senior years of college but Nandan is a hard working introvert while Sunny is a well-rounded, generally sporty "cool dude" who always sticks with his friends. Nandan and Sunny have girlfriends Devi and Thara respectively who match them exactly in personality. Sunny also has another very loyal pal named Vinod who tends to get a bit annoying sometimes, but Sunny appreciates him nevertheless. When Sunny and Nandan graduate college with highest honors, they decide to get married to their girlfriends. Thara's parents approve Sunny, but Devi's father does not approve Nandan when he sees his job as a waiter in a restaurant. Devi's father even decides to have an arranged marriage for her, about which Nandan and Sunny get really upset. Sunny promises that he would convince Devi's father to change his mind. However, things still stay the same and Devi's arranged marriage goes on as planned. On the morning of the wedding when Devi leaves town, worse turns to worst when news arrives telling that Sunny got killed in a motorbike accident with Vinod in a critical condition at the hospital. It is later discovered that Vinod survived the accident upon losing his ability to talk. Thara gets extremely devastated and starts living her life as a widow. Nandan obeys Sunny's wishes telling him to be a playback singer for movies and eventually gains fame and wealth from doing so. From this part of the movie to the end, all the characters hear Sunny's voice in random places, making them feel him in their hearts. On one of Nandan's tours, he stays in a hotel and discovers that the clerk is Devi. He calls her later, telling her, "Sukhamo Devi?" (Are you doing alright, Devi?), the title of the movie. He eventually meets her husband, Dr. Venugopal who tells Nandan to move on with life and the choice wasn't his either. Meanwhile, Nandan tries to cheer up Thara who has yet to recover from the shock of Sunny's death and takes her to places. Devi leaves for Goa with her husband for good with Nandan promising her that they will unite in Heaven one day. The final scene shows Nandan and Thara watching Devi's plane leave with Sunny's voice telling Nandan to "look after Thara like gold". During that moment, they decide to get married until they reunite with their true loves in Heaven.
