Dreaded by the rich and corrupt and revered by the poor and downtrodden, Kayamkulam Kochunni was a Robin Hood of sorts: He is said to have stolen from the rich and given to the poor. This film chronicles the life and times of the legendary 19th century highwayman, and how he roses from his humble beginnings with his intimate friend Ithikkara Pakki. It is because he has experienced abject poverty in his younger days that he has developed an aversion to misers, moneylenders and landlords. Maybe that is why, by the assistance of an renaissance leader called Arattupuzha Velayudha Panicker, Kochunni is arrested. But nothing could stop that the legends about his life became part of Indian folklore.
