Premam is obviously a love story, as the title suggests. George David (Nivin Pauly) is a happy go lucky guy. He is in love with a girl named Mary (Anupama Parameshwaran). He is aided in his love by his friends Koya (Krishna Shankar) and Shambu (Shabareesh Varma). He follows Mary and her younger sister Celine (Eva Prakash) everyday but fails to propose to Mary. Finally, he decides to propose to her one day, but he then realizes that Mary is already in love with another guy, who is also named George. George is then left heartbroken.
Years later, George and his friends joins college. While ragging newcomers, George meets Malar (Sai Pallavi), a new teacher in their college who is a Tamilian. He instantly falls in love with her despite the teacher-student moral issue. After a rough start, George with his friends befriends Malar. This relationship paves an open road to George’s infatuation and love. Malar and George begins a casual relationship. One day, Malar goes to visit her home with her cousin. Later George hears the news that Malar and her cousin met with an accident and in the shock lost her immediate memory. He goes to visit her at her home but is left heartbroken when she doesn’t recognize him. Eventually, Malar marries her cousin.
A few years later, an adult George now runs a cafe with his old friend Jojo (Wilson Joseph). One day, a girl (Madonna Sebastian) comes to their shop for buying a birthday cake. She later reveals to George that she is Celine, Mary’s younger sister. A despondent George feels hope and confused with the friendliness between them as a spark and decides to propose her. But he is once again left heartbroken when she reveals that she is engaged to a guy named Roney (Alphonse Putharen). Later it is known their engagement is cancelled, because Roney insults Celine after substance abuse. George and his friends go to Roney’s place and beat him up for affronting Celine. In the end George marries Celine and comes to know that Mary is also married. Later, they are visited by Malar and her husband and it is revealed that Malar has regained her memory.
The original soundtrack and background score were composed by Rajesh Murugesan, who had collaborated with Alphonse Putharen in the film Neram.
