Kathir (G. V. Prakash Kumar), Kumaran and Nisha plan a combined and flawless suicide because of their failures in their respective lives. Firstly they try to fulfill their last wishes before leaving this world. Nisha wants to steal a new car and Kathir wants to slap the local MLA in his own house.
After stealing a new car and slapping the local MLA, the trio flee away from there to a nearby resort after escaping from the police. There Athisaya Raj, yet another suicide aspirant joins them and the four reach the farm house. There, Kumaran and Nisha, who is in love with Kathir, plan to postpone their suicide for 3 days so that they can prevent Kathir from committing suicide due to a Love Failure.
Their plan turns successful and in that interval of 3 days, all the four get close to each other. Kathir develops feelings for Nisha but hesitates to tell to her for fear of being humiliated by her. At the end of the 3rd day, Kumaran asks Nisha to kiss Kathir to divert from death, as per male psychology. He meanwhile requests Kathir to kiss Nisha as she wants to experience her first kiss before dying to which Kathir accepts with shame and shyness.
As he tries to kiss her, a ghost enters the body of Nisha , who forces Kathir out of there. A flabberghasted Kathir runs out of the room. Whenever Nisha shows her feelings to Kathir and Kathir reacts to it by hugging or touching her, the ghost enters her body and scares Kathir away. Unaware of the ghost’s entry into her body, Nisha feels depressed.
When Kumaran hears Kathir describing Nisha as a ghost, he rushes to Nisha ‘s room to scold her and ask for an apology to Kathir , only to see the ghost enter her body and thrash him. That night, Raj too experiences the Ghost’s fury at its villainous best. The trio decide to distance themselves from her and always stay together.
From the next morning, they try to get the ghost vacate Nisha body only to earn the wrath of the ghost. After Nisha comes to know about the ghost’s presence in her, she too accompanies the trio to escape from there, in vain. Nisha , who observes Kathir avoiding her to escape the wrath of the ghost, gets deeply hurt and depressed, resulting in a suicide attempt by slitting her wrist.
Three rich men enter the farm house who permit the four to stay there. One of them is the owner of the farm house. Kathir reaches Nisha but in turn is requested to kill those three by the ghost. Kathir asks her the reason for vengeance, and the ghost narrates her story to the trio.
