Ivan (transl. Him) is a 2002 Indian Tamil language film directed, written and produced by Parthipan. The film features Parthipan, Meena and Soundarya in the lead roles.

Plot[edit]

Jeevan (Parthiban) is a tempo driver and a socially conscious middle-aged man who wants to clean up society. His motivation is his late father (Thalaivasal Vijay) who was murdered as he tried to be a crusader. Jeevan is intelligent enough to realize that he is not a one-man-army to fight the evils and corruption in society. So what he does is to motivate the public to fight for their rights. He lives in a small place with four friends and together they do what little they can to improve the condition around. The Carnatic singer and widow woman Dikshanya (Soundarya) has a silent admiration for Jeevan, but it is the Telugu woman Meena Kumari (Meena) who wins him over and forces him to marriage by telling a lie that she has cancer. There are about 18 antagonists, who make their entry and exit. Thereafter, Jeevan brings them all together and each of them gets a chance to support his stand and speak on the circumstances which forced them to take to crime. Jeevan gives a long lecture and transforms them into being good citizens.
