Balakrishnan (Saikumar) is an unemployed youth trying to pay back his and his late father's debt to Hamsakoya (Mamukkoya), who needs money to pay for his sister's dowry. Balakrishnan loses his job opportunity to Rani (Rekha) and tries to take it back from her but later stops realizing that she has her own problems with family illnesses and poverty. Gopalakrishnan (Mukesh) is also unemployed and is trying to make his mother proud of him by saying that he has a good industrial job in Calcuttamarker and has plans to buy a new house. Both Balakrishnan and Gopalakrishnan reside in the house of Mannar Mathai (Innocent), an artist financially unable to start a career in theater. As the three of them try to forget their problems with alcohol, a bandit named Ramji Rao (Vijayaraghavan) mistakenly calls the wrong number claiming he has kidnapped the daughter of a rich business man Uramees Thamban (Devan). Seeing an opportunity for money, the three of them come up with their own plan to impersonate the bandit and collect the ransom themselves. They planned to get the four lakhs from the father first and use part of the money to pay the ransom to Ramji Rao, get the daughter and then hand it over to the father.

However the plan goes wrong when a police officer who is family friend of Uramees Thamban gets wind of the kidnap and tries to intervene. The film ends in a chaotic climax with the Urvashi trio, Hamsokoya and his friends, Ramji Rao and his gang fights for the money and the little girl. Finally the three manages to escape with the money and hands over his daughter to Uramees Thamban. Ramji Rao and his gang are arrested. Meanwhile Gopalakrishnan is separated from the other two who believes that he ran away with the whole amount. In anger, they inform the police of their whereabouts. Soon Gopalakrishnan returns having used the money to pay off Hamsakoya and to pick up his mom. Before the heroes could act, the police arrives to arrest them. Rani arrives there as well. As the heroes are being taken away, it is strongly implied that Uramees Thamban, who is happy with the help they rendered in getting his daughter back, will help them to fight the case.
