The movie revolves around the lives of three girls: Shalini, Nimah, and Geetanjali, who are manipulated into converting to another religion by their roommate, Asifa.

However, the film faced scrutiny right from its trailer release, with claims of exaggerated figures regarding missing women in Kerala. Despite objections, it emerged as one of the most successful films at the box office in 2023.
