Kareem has been managing Ustad Hotel for the last 35 years. Kareem's grandson Faizi, has been living with his rich dad Razaq and four sisters in the Gulf. As he grows up, his sisters are married off one by one. And then his father marries for a second time. Faizi hopes to be a chef, much against the aspirations of his dad. He goes to Switzerland to study hotel management and when he returns with much fanfare after the course, it is revealed that he has done a chef's course secretly and not hotel management. This shatters Razak's dream of opening a five-star hotel in his home town Kozhikode. Razaq virtually disowns Feyze and even takes away his passport and credit cards so that Faizi cannot go to London where he has already got a job. In anger, Feyze comes to Kozhikode to join his grandfather. Razaq wants him to marry a business tycoon's daughter Shahana and they meet. Faizi's stay in Kozhikode continues for a bit longer than what he had anticipated. During his stay with his grandfather, Faizi has a taste of the real world that exists beyond the sea and its shores. The film is about the bonding between Faizi and his grandfather and how a few days with his grandfather and Ustad Hotel changes his life forever.
