the Lord is a pure adaptation of Zacharia's novel 'Praise The Lord', which also
has the same title. Joy (Mammootty) is an immensely rich Pala based farmer. He
is hardly aware of the life beyond his small town in Pala as he didn't get much
chance to explore the outside world. But a boy and girl, who are in love, change
Joy's outlook on life. This forms the plot of the story.
