Parankiyath family is an aristocratic orthodox Muslim joint family. Soya Sahib(Madhu) is the head of the family. There is an unwritten norm in the family; the people from other religions are not welcome there. There is a reason behind this decision: the enmity between Soya Sahib's elder son Kasim Bhai(Siddique) and Narayana Kurup(Saikumar) led to a blood shed, and critically injured Kasim Bhai was later paralysed.
Dr Madhavan Kutty(Jayaram) will be brought to treat Kasim Bhai, with the fake identity Dr Mammootty, by Anwar(Asif Ali), Kasim Bhai's nephew. Madhavan Kutty falls in love with Kasim Bhai's elder daughter Wahida(Kaniha). What happens later forms the rest of the story.
Cast And Performance
Jayaram, who plays Dr Madhavan Kutty aka Mammootty, delivers an energetic performance. The actor who is going through a low phase in his career, bounces back with his exuberant performance. Asif Ali shines as Anwar with is energy-packed act. Kaniha and Meera Nandan, who essays the female leads, manages to steal the show with their charming performances.
Siddique perfectly plays Kasim Bhai while Saikumar depicts Narayana Kurup to near perfection. Rest of the cast, including Madhu, Kailash, Sadiq, Baburaj, Kalabhavan Shajohn, Kalabhavan Navas, Saju Kodiyan and Anjana completely fit into their respective roles.

The plus point of the movie is the script which perfectly blends all the ingrediants needed for a family entertainer; even though the story line shows some similarity with the theme of Dileep starrer blockbuster Udayapuram Sultan.
