The Ashok Selvan and Priya Bhavani Shankar starrer narrates how a girl sneaks in and out of a strict boys hostel. In what is touted as a horror comedy, there is more comedy and fake ghosts than serious horror.
The trailer opens up with Nassar playing a Father, who is a strict warden of the boys hostel. But the boys manage to cheat him and enjoy their lives. When Ashok Selvan needs money, Priya Bhavani Shankar offers to help, but only if he will return the favour by safely sneaking her into the boys hostel. Though Ashok Selvan is initially hesitant, he accepts the offer as he needs the cash.
Due to some reasons, they are stuck in the hostel. How Ashok Selvan and his friends help her get out of the building safely forms the rest of the comic plot, where they also play the game of fake ghosts to frighten the warden.
