The film begins as Dr. Matthew Devasya (Renji Panicker) anxiously paces the hall outside of a delivery room. He learns that his wife has delivered a baby boy and thanks God for the good news. A stranger comments that Mathew was lucky it’s not a daughter, as he would have had to worry about her all his life. As the stranger says this, a nurse comes out of the delivery room carrying the baby, apologizing that she made a mistake, and confirming that the baby is actually a girl. Mathew glares at the stranger and praises God once again.
The story resumes in 1999 where the baby girl, Pooja Mathew (Nazriya Nazim), has grown up to become a tomboy and is now in grade 12 and is seventeen years old. She introduces the audience to her parents. Her father is a doctor by profession and enjoys recording and listening to his own renditions of songs. Her mother, a college lecturer by profession, is a sweet and down-to-earth woman who loves cooking and appreciating her own culinary skills. Pooja also has two friends: Neetu (Akshaya Premnath), a flirt, and Donna (Oshein Mertil), a foodie.
