Orma Mathram (English: Memories Alone) is a 2011 Malayalam film directed by Madhu Kaithapram and starring Dileep, Priyanka Nair, Master Sidharth, Dhanya Mary Varghese, Nedumudi Venu in the main roles. The screenplay was written by C. V. Balakrishnan based on a story by Rahim Kadavath, both of them noted authors.


The film revolves around Ajayan (Dileep), a clerk at a lawyer's office. Ajayan had an intercast marriage with Safia (Priyanka Nair) long ago. Ajayan and Safiya along with their five-year-old son Deepu (Master Sidharth), were happily living in Fort Kochi. Ajayan wants his son to be a judge, which he couldn’t become. Here happens a tragedy in their life which completely shatters Ajayan and Safia. Their son Deepu goes missing and the story follows the father's journey in search of his son.



The film was critically acclaimed but as being an art film it was not well received in the theaters. And undoubtedly it is one of the best performances in Dileep's career. Master Siddharth won the mathrubhumi film awards 2011 and Amrita TV film awards for the best child actor in the film orma mathram.
