Kaaval Geetham (transl. Song of protection) is a 1992 Tamil-language action romance film, directed by S. P. Muthuraman, starring Vikram and Sithara . The music was by Ilaiyaraaja.

Plot[edit]

Priya (Sithara) is a crime Journalist. She is investigating the rape and murder of a victim whose face has been disfigured through Acid. Inspector Ashok (Vikram) is assigned to the same jurisdiction. He saves Priya from the murderer's henchmen, arrests the murderer and begins courtship with Priya. One day, Arthanari(Chinni Jayanth); a house husband, comes to Ashok suspecting that his neighbor; a dancer called Ramesh (Saikumar) may have murdered his wife after a loud quarrel.

Priya and Ashok stumble upon a little girl who happens to be the daughter of Ramesh. Investigations reveal that the girl's mother Thangam was cheated by Ramesh in the village. Ramesh and his girlfriend Rathna (Disco Shanti) successfully kills Thangam and tries to do the same to the little girl but gets saved by Ashok. As the criminal investigation proceeds, Ramesh slowly removes witnesses by various unscrupulous means.

What transpires later forms the crux of the story.
