Eeramana Rojave (transl. The Wet Rose) is a 1991 Indian Tamil-language film, directed and produced by Keyaar. The film stars Shiva Subramanian, Mohini, Srividya and Nassar. The film had musical score by Ilaiyaraaja.[1] The movie was also dubbed and released in Telugu as Premalekhalu in the same year. Mohini was barely 12 years of age when the movie was filmed.


Shanthi (Mohini) and Siva (Shiva) go to the same college and after some initial misunderstandings, fall in love. A psychotic fellow student, known as Helmet, tortures any couple he sees that are in love. He's sadistic and despises love. Shanthi's friend Anitha and her boyfriend Ravi are killed by Helmet. This spurs Shanthi to stand up against him. Helmet conspires to get Siva expelled as revenge and Shanthi, in turn, has Helmet arrested. Shanthi's rich father JK (Nassar) learns about his daughter's love and arranges her marriage with the son of his friend. The young couple run away with the help of Shanthi's grandmother (Srividya) but fall into Helmet's sadistic hands. The young couple must escape his clutches and change JK's mind.



Eeramana Rojave is the acting debut of Shiva and Mohini.[2]


The music was composed by Ilaiyaraaja.[3][4]
