Devaraagam is a 1996 Indian Malayalam-language film starring Arvind Swamy, Sridevi, KPAC Lalitha, Kozhikode Narayanan Nair, Zeenath and Nedumudi Venu.[1][2][3]The Tamil dubbed version of this movie was also released.[4]


The film opens with a young child climbing into a bullock cart and insisting that he also go with the cart to pick up the 'Shavundi' - a person who performs funeral rites and lives amongst the cremation grounds. Though essential to the funeral ceremonies, he is often considered frightening or unlucky. He certainly looks that way too - covered in ash and grime, sleeping in a bat-infested grove and given ominous background music. The 'Shavundi' and child begin talking in the cart ride to the funeral, and then a flashback takes us to meet Lakshmi.

Life for Lakshmi turns head over heels when Vishnu (Arvind Swamy), the new priest's son and priest-in-training, shows up in her village. Lakshmi is instantly intrigued by the new young man in town, as you can see towards the end of this beautiful.[5]



The music was composed by M. M. Keeravani and lyrics was written by M. D. Rajendran.
