Superman is 1997 Indian Malayalam-language action film written and directed by Rafi Mecartin, starring Jayaram and Shobana. The film was produced and distributed by Siddique, Lal and Azeez under the banner of Kavyachandrika.


Nithya is the deputy commissioner of the city who lives with her uncle since both her parents were killed in an accident. She was assigned to investigate a corruption case involving the Home Minister and his friend, a business man called Rajan Phillip. Unknowingly, she was helped in the investigation by a criminal nicknamed Superman.

Superman, whose real name is Hareendran nurtures a vendetta against the Home minister and Rajan Phillip and uses Nithya to trap his enemies. In the process, Superman uses the Judiciary as his weapon and frames the men responsible for his tragic past. He provides vital information to the police for the same. In order to collect evidence, Superman himself breaks the law, but as it is for the greater good, Nithya looks the other way.
