Kallan Pavithran (transl. Pavithran, the thief) is a 1981 Indian Malayalam-language drama film written and directed by P. Padmarajan, based on his own short story of the same name.[1] It stars Nedumudi Venu and Bharath Gopi, along with Subhashini, Beena and Devi in supporting roles. The film revolves around the lives of Pavithran, a petty thief, and Mamachan, a mill owner. Their lives turn upside down when Pavithran finds wealth from an unknown source.


The profession Pavithran is involved in earned him the title Kallan (thief) Pavithran, the thefts he gets involved were of petty nature. It was as the result of Pavithran's effort to get rid of the title he had with his name that he visited Mamachan the mill owner. Pavithran's request for a job in the mill was turned down by Mamachan. But a theft that occurs in Mamachan's house changes the fate of Pavithran's life forever.
