Prajapathi (lit.'Leader of the people') is a 2006 Malayalam film directed by Ranjith. The film features Mammootty, Siddique, Sreenivasan, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sandhya, Seema, Nedumudi Venu and Sai Kumar. The music is by Tej Manoj and lyrics are by Girish Puthencherry. The film was shot close to Gopichettipalayam in Tamil Nadu.


Devar Madom Narayanan (Mammootty) is accused of killing his father, for being cruel to his mother, at the age of 13 and serves a sentence in a juvenile home. When he returns, he becomes leader of the people of Perumalpuram village. He ensures the village is devoid of all wrongdoers by expelling them. His enemies are his uncle Kunjambu Nair (Nedumudi Venu) and wife Indrani (Seema). Kunjambu Nair hated Narayanan killing his brother, although Kunjambu Nair and his son Giri (Siddique) tried in many ways to kill Narayanan. At one point Giri almost succeeded in killing Devar madom Narayanan. Narayanan again did not react. He was on good terms with Kunjambu Nair's daughter (Sandhya) and his Murapennu (Aditi Rao Hydari). Giri tries to sell his land in Perumalpuram to some outsider whose arrival, Narayanan knew, would destroy the harmony of the village. That is when Narayanan decides to react.

It turns out that Kunjambu Nair was the one who actually killed his father for their wealth. Narayanan helps Ali Raghavan (Sreenivasan), the real son of Kunjambu Nair, to gain his birthright. When Giri finds that he is the stepson of Kunjambu Nair, he kills his stepfather. The family drives him away from home with the help of Narayanan. The rest of the film is about how and if Giri takes revenge on Narayanan.



The film received negative reviews from critics.[1]


The film's soundtrack contains five songs, all composed by Thej Mervin, with lyrics by Gireesh Puthenchery.
