Naan Mahaan Alla (transl. I am not a prophet) is a 1984 Indian Tamil-language film directed by S. P. Muthuraman. This film features Rajinikanth, Radha and M. N. Nambiar in the lead roles. It is a remake of Hindi film Vishwanath (1978).[1]

Plot[edit]

Viswanath (Rajinikanth), a famous lawyer, stays with his widowed mother (Vijayakumari) and physically handicapped sister (Uma). He sends Jagan, a rich magnate's son (Sathyaraj) and Lokaiya, two criminals to jail on the charge of rape and murder of an innocent girl. Jagan's father, GMK (M N Nambiar) uses his influence and starts creating trouble in Viswanath's life. GMK succeeds in getting Viswanath imprisoned on a trumped up charge. His heartbroken mother dies. Once out of jail, Viswanath sets out to punish the culprits when he temporarily loses his eyesight.
