Pappan Priyappetta Pappan (lit.'Pappan Dear Pappan') is a 1986 Indian Malayalam-Fantasy film directed by Sathyan Anthikad and written by Siddique–Lal. It stars Mohanlal, Rahman, Thilakan, Lissy, Bahadoor, Unni Mary, Rajan P. Dev and Sankaradi.[1][2][3] This is the debut film of Siddique-Lal duo and Harisree Ashokan. The storyline is similar to Heaven Can Wait.


A singer Pappan is killed in a bike accident, by rival singer Umesh; but Yamaraj the Lord of Death realizes that Pappan had a few more days to live. Yamarajan allows Pappan to enter into bodies of other dead people. He first enters the body of a rich old man (Bahadur), then onto a Robinhood thief's body (Nedumudi) and finally onto CI (police)Devdas' body (Mohanlal) in a bid to tell his girlfriend Sarina (Lissy) that Pappan is dead, and to look forward to someone else in life.



The music was composed by Alleppey Ranganath and lyrics were written by R. K. Damodaran and Sathyan Anthikad.
