NH 47 is a 1984 Indian Malayalam film, directed by Baby and produced by Sajan. The film stars Jagathy Sreekumar, Jose, Shubha and Prathapachandran in lead roles. The film had musical score by Shyam.[1][2][3] Sukumaran as the victim Chacko of the notorious Chacko Murder Case that shook Kerala and T. G. Ravi played the character of Sukumara Kurup who allegedly plotted the murder.

Even though in real life, Kurup still remains untraced, the film showed that he is getting caught by the Police.[4]



Sudhakaran Pilla, a business man arrives from Gulf for the housewarming of his new house under construction. His subordinate Sunny accompanies him from Gulf. Thankappan, Sudhakaran Pillai's driver stays with his mother Gauriyamma and daughter Mini. Rahim, a medical representative, is Thankappan's neighbour and stays with his wife Nazeera and father in law Khaderikka. Ramani is the younger sister of Sudhakaran Pillai's wife Sumathi. Ramani's husband Bhargavan Pilla is not in good terms with Sudhakaran Pillai as he had borrowed money from him long ago and has not returned it till now.

In the meanwhile Sunny makes a short visit to his house near the beach. Sunny's father was a fisherman and has three daughters, the elder being Elsy who is still not married owing to their poor financial circumstance. After an injury that disabled one of his hands, Sunny's father is not able to go for work and they have a terrible time making a living. They were heart broken after finding that Sunny did not bring anything for them in their visit. Sunny tells them that once he receives the money that Sudhakaran Pillai had promised to give him, he will settle all financial problems. That night Sunny was shocked to find out that Elsy was spending nights with another man in that area who was funding his family in return.

Things take a turn on one midnight when police gets informed that a car is set to fire in the National Highway. It was found that the person in drivers seat is burnt to death. Police has some doubt on finding the presence of gloves near the burnt car. From the confirmation provided by Bhargavan Pilla, police infers that it is Sudhakaran Pillai, and they bury the body as per custom (if one's mother is alive, the body cannot be cremated, and it has to be buried).

S.I Johnson, the main investigator behind the case, takes the suspected persons under custody and finds out that it was Rahim who was being fakely burnt to death instead of Sudhakaran Pillai. The plan was constructed by Sudhakaran Pillai whose main aim was to get the compensation from the Dubai based company where Sudhakaran Pillai was employed. Sudhakaran Pillai consults an advocate to debate his case, however the advocate refuses. Finally the crowd punishes Sudhakaran Pillai.


The music was composed by Shyam and lyrics was written by Poovachal Khader.
