Sethulakshmi ( Baby Anikha), a school-going girl, has a hobby of collecting the photos of newly married couples from newspaper and pasting them in a note-book. She has a close friend (Master Chethan) and he comes to know about her keen interest in taking photos. Once they decide to go to a studio nearby for taking their photos. The decision changes their destiny...


Two strangers, Isha (Isha Sharvani) and Jinu (Nivin Pauly) meet in a house for a similar cause in a New Year eve. The two have a conversation and then a series of twists and turns happen. ,,


The short film tells the love story of a married couple living in a hill station. After materializing their love affair through register marriage, Gauri (Kavya Madhavan) and Jonathan Antony (Biju Menon) choose the place to begin their married life. Jo is crazy about trekking while Gauri is a dancer and teaches the art to her students. On the eve of their wedding anniversary, a tragedy occurs which changes their life.

Kullante Bharya

A newly- wed couple comes to stay in an apartment. The husband played by Jinu Ben who is only 5 feet 1 inches is shorter than his extremely tall wife played by the 6 feet tall young new comer Reenu Mathews. This gives a chance to their neighbours to gossip about them. As the couple lives happily, they expect their baby to add to the joy. But destiny has something else in store for them. The whole film is pictured in the point of view of a person who is bed-ridden after an accident (played by Dulquer Salmaan). It is reminiscent of the photographer in wheelchair observing his neighbors in Alfred Hitchcock' Rear Window.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>


A businessman, Ajmal (Fahadh Faasil), faces a row of events during his journey from Malappuram to Kochi. His affectionate wife (Asmita Sood) tries to keep him awake during the drive by asking a few tricky questions. The night journey becomes an eventful one and changes the course of his life.
