Daivanamathil is a 2005 Malayalam film directed by Jayaraj. Aryadan Shaukath is the producer. Playing the lead are upcoming stars Prithviraj and Bhavana. The film is based on a Muslim story and throws light on the Babri Masjid demolition in December 1992 which had its repercussions on Kerala Muslims. Bhavana received a State Award for best character actress for this film.


The story is about Anwar (Pritviraj) who discontinues his education further at the Aligarh Muslim University soon after his marriage. During his stay the Babri Masjid demolition occurs and as a result he turns a fundamentalist. His wife an educated Muslim girl (Bhavana) tries to alter and change the ideals of her Islamist fanatic husband. But to reform himself he rather chooses the way to jail and starts afresh. The thread of the story is the aftermath of the Babri Masjid demolition and the Gujarat riots.

Anwar encounters a group of Karsevaks in a train, all of them headed towards the demolition of Babri Masjid. The encounter greatly disturbs him and he is no longer the same loving and romantic husband to his wife as well as the engrossed PG student.

He writes a letter to Samira about his intentions and his decision to join Jehad to seek revenge on others. Anwar goes on to become a full-time extremist and plants a bomb in a hotel at the Ramzan time. This hurts his grandfather a lot who is always against extremism.

Anwar on the other hand is unstoppable and believes that the deaths of innocents are a part of the Jehad. Sahib tells his grandson to stop all his activities at once and warns him about the ugly consequences, the community has to face, because of his deeds, but to no avail.

Meanwhile, Anwar lands up in jail. Samira only has one wish, her husband should come back to his normal life. He should become her old Anwar, romantic and soft person.
