Outsider' the plot sadly falls short of the objectives of the film maker. Part drama and part thriller, the film is obviously much ambitious, and yet struggles to maintain its momentum as it struggles through unhurried movie moments.

Sivankutty (Sreenivasan) is a boat driver based at Thekkady who brings up his motherless daughter Manju (Ganga Babu) with utmost care. When he realizes that his daughter is in love with a local ruffian Mukundan (Indrajith), Sivan isn't pleased, but in the wake of a greater disaster about to ruin their lives forever, realizes that Mukundan is the only ray of hope around.

The crux of the film, that of an 'outsider' entering your life and demolishing it totally is more of an idea that one is probably familiar with the innumerable slasher films that one has seen in Hollywood. Here, the idea remains the same; it's a stranger Lawrence (Pasupathy) who wreaks havoc on a family, and who in no time brings the whole world crumbling to their feet.
