From joomla 3.0 onwards a layout sharing feature is introduced, using it you can call a layout across views or extensions. It requires creating a layout object and then render the view using that object as:

$layout = new JLayoutFile('my_layout', $basePath = JPATH_ROOT .'/components/com_something/layouts');
$html = $layout->render();

this will render the 'my_layout.php' layout file found in JPATH_ROOT .'/components/com_something/layouts' directory. So you can try the above code in your plugin to call your component view if you are using joomla 3.0+
