Oru Yathramozhi is a 1997 Indian Malayalam film, starring Mohanlal and Sivaji Ganeshan in the lead roles. It was directed by Prathap Pothan based on a story by Priyadarshan. It was produced by V. B. K. Menon and distributed by Kavya Chandrika Release. The film's initial release date was 15 August 1996, but the release was postponed and finally graced theatres only in 1997. The film was dubbed in Tamil as Payanathin Mozhi.
It is a story about a father and a son, which is filled with sentiment or sorrow. Govindankutty (Mohanlal) is on the lookout for his unknown father seeking to take revenge by killing him for leaving him and his mother. Then enters Anantha Subramaniam (Sivaji Ganeshan) a rich trader, who comes to Govindankutty's hometown and likes him instantly for his loyalty and honesty. Both of them become very close to each other. The story takes a turn when Govindankutty's mother recognizes the rich trader as her long-lost husband and later on Govindankutty gets to know the rich trader is his father. The story then comes into the climax as Govindankutty tries to make the tough decision as to whether to kill his father or not.

Swarnachamaram is a film that was shelved as a result of creative differences over the topic of mercy killing. Many scenes were edited out of the film along with a song by Sivaji Ganeshan and Mohanlal. Producer V. B. K. Menon used the same dates and completed Oru Yathramozhi, starring Sivaji Ganesan and Mohanlal. The movie was not released until a year or so after completion.
