Rajeev Kumar, starring Jayaram, Mukesh, Manya and Jagathy Sreekumar. It was actor Bobby Kottarakkara's last film.

The film presents the story of Narayanankutty, popularly known as Vakkaalaththu Narayanankutty, an orthodox person and an active social worker who can bear anything but breach of justice and traditionalism. When he sees law being broken anywhere, he reacts promptly. He doesn't even care as to who is pitted against him and just goes on fighting. This leads to all sorts of problems in his life and the film follows that.

The film is loosely based on the noted social activist, Nawab Rajendran. [4]
