Omanakkuttan (Asif Ali) is an introverted sales executive working at a hair oil company named Clintonica owned by Chandran (Siddique), who used to be a snake oil salesman. During his time in the company, Omanakkuttan discovers a wide possibility that exists for chatting with women over phone through fake names and profiles and does so. Meanwhile, an SI (Srindaa Arhaan) whom he chats with posing as a police officer wants to see him for real. He dresses up as a police officer and comes to the venue of a music concert conducted by a musician named Sidharth (Rahul Madhav). He gets cold feet and runs away into the concert crowd, but not before the SI catches a glimpse of him. At the concert, Omanakkuttan sees Pallavi (Bhavana). Pallavi has come there to get in touch with Sidharth to get access to a bungalow for research purposes(Pallavi is a parapsychology research student who is trying to research about the existence of ghosts, etc.). At the end of the concert, Pallavi tries to call out to Sidharth and Sidharth asks Pallavi to pass her note-pad so he could give her his autograph. Pallavi finds that Sidharth has given his phone number too. But actually it was Omanakuttan who signed the note-pad and gave his number. They begin chatting over phone call. Pallavi does not know it is Omanakuttan with whom she chats and doesn't even mind him on the way. Omanakkuttan successfully continues chatting with Pallavi and several other women posing as different people from different backgrounds, while in real he is his shy and introverted self. One fateful day while returning late night from office, he is looted by a taxi driver and hit on his head and disposed in a dump yard, and wakes up to find that he has lost his memory. He forgets everything that has happened in his life so far, and even forgets his name. He has his phone but upon calling up in a few numbers, people address him with different names so he gets further confused. Stranded on the highway, he asks for lifts and one car stops and it is Pallavi inside. She takes him as a charity case for a favour without knowing it was with him she had been chatting all along. Omanakkuttan and Pallavi go on an adventure to find out who he really is or whether all of this is an act of his craft.
