Masmaram is a 1997 Indian Malayalam film, directed by Thampi Kannanthanam, starring Suresh Gopi and Aparna Rao in the lead roles. [1] [2] [3] The film was dubbed into Telugu as Sathru Vamsam. [4]



It is a story of corporate rivalry of two textile tycoons—one who attempts to modernize and gain market share, and one who attempts to use any sorts of evil-doing and make money. The injustice in-between brings forth a lot of unaccountable evil deeds, and for all of it Gautham holds the evil-doer accountable with his life.
