Over the course of the series, the team at the Good Karma Hospital faces a wide range of medical challenges, from infectious diseases and complex surgeries to cultural clashes and personal conflicts. They also encounter a colorful cast of patients and their families, each with their own unique stories and backgrounds.

Throughout the show, The Good Karma Hospital explores themes of love, loss, forgiveness, and redemption, as well as the complexities of cross-cultural communication and collaboration. It also showcases the vibrant and diverse culture of Kerala, with stunning landscapes, bustling markets, and colorful festivals.
