Summary: The wealthy Meleri Moosa (Kottarathil) ruins
himself with obsessive litigation. With his
daughter Amina (Jayalalitha) and her husband
Abu (Kunhumohammad), Meleri crosses the
Bharathapuzha river to settle in a new area.
There, the wealthy Moidutty Mudalali
(Madhavan), with the benediction of the local
kazi (religious leader, played by Sriraman),
sends his own wife away, lays claim to Amina
and marries her, ignoring Abu’s protests.
Twenty years later, Amina lives alone in a
tomb-like mansion while her father happily
indulges in civil litigation cases. In addition,her
son leads a dissolute life and her daughter
elopes with the chauffeur. Scenarist Rahim
claimed the film to be a critique of the
controversial Muslim personal law in India.
