With the arrival of electricity in Kerala in the early 20th century under British rule, the 'Odiyan' clan - gangsters capable of shape-shifting in the darkness - find it difficult to survive. The last 'Odiyan' (played by Mohanlal) spreads terror across the empire with his stealth attacks when his own kind are captured and ruthlessly killed.

The script writer got the plot idea when he was lecturing journalism classes; he asked the students to write a feature story to test their creativity.

His story is about the last surviving Odiyan and the reasons his clan is almost extinct. See more
