Nirnayam (transl. Diagnosis) is a 1995 Indian Malayalam-language crime thriller film directed by Sangeeth Sivan, produced by Suresh Balaje, and written by Cheriyan Kalpakavadi. The film stars Mohanlal and Heera Rajgopal. The plot follows Dr. Roy Mathews (Mohanlal), who after framed for his wife's murder escapes while on custody to discover the truth behind the incident and the actual perpetrators. The film's music was composed by R. Anandh.[1][2][3]

The plot is heavily based on the American film The Fugitive, which itself is based on the 1963 TV Series of the same name.


Dr. Roy is an honest surgeon who works in a private hospital. He falls in love with his apprentice Dr. Annie and marries her. When Annie discovers a frightening organ-smuggling operation in her hospital, she is murdered. Dr. Roy is framed for the crime due to circumstantial evidence. However, on his way to jail, an accident occurs and he escapes. A fugitive from justice, he tries to discover the truth. He eventually finds aid in a police officer, Javed. Eventually, Dr. Roy is able to bring the perpetrators behind the kidney scam to justice and kill Ifti, his wife's murderer.



The film score and soundtrack of the film were composed by R. Anandh, a prolific composer of advertisement films.
