Summary: The movie is a portrait of the life of Anantha Padmanabhan (Mammootty), born to an aristocratic Namboothiri father (Charuhasan) and a low caste mother (Jayabharathi), who quickly learns and masters all 3 Vedas and allied arts of it. Ananthan and his family go through a lot of trouble, as the narrow-minded Brahmin community finds out that he is in love with an aristocratic girl, which ends in tragedy upon his family. To seek revenge for his mother's death, he learns ancient mystic tantric rituals and the 4th Veda, Atharvaveda, which is generally related to sorcery. He puts a menace on the whole society, using his powers that he gained over the years. His father's second son (Ganesh Kumar) is sent to save the society and the village from the clutches of this austere man inflicted with vengeance.
