The movie starts with the Amman statue that was guarding the village from evil spirits and negative energy being moved into an underground room during the temple's renovation. At a graveyard somewhere close to the temple a group of tantric practitioners capitalise on the Amman being made dormant to awaken evil spirits for black magic purposes. During the ritual they inadvertently release a demonic entity that they could not contain. The evil spirit then leaves the graveyard in the form of cloud and moves into the village. The village mendicant-holyman notices the evil spirit and chases after it, but could not prevent it from entering the titular palace. Being mute, his pleadings to warn the palace owner is ignored. Later that night, the spirit attacks the owner who then falls and goes into a coma. His elder son , arrives with his wife and their son Suresh . Together with them are his younger brother, Murali and his fiance Anitha . Devadas arrives as well, in disguise as his father, Sandhu Bondu Naadimuthu who was a doctor and had contact with the land owners.
