It is a story about a father and a son which is filled with sentiments or sorrow. Govindankutty (Mohanlal) is on a look out 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 home-town 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 climax as Govindankutty tries to make the tough decision to kill his father or not?

Swarnachamaram was the film which was supposed to be the first Sivaji Ganeshan and Mohanlal combination movie. The film was directed by Rajeevnath, but due to unofficial reasons, the film was dropped after canning many scenes and a song of Sivaji Ganeshan and Mohanlal combo. So producer V.B.K.Menon used the same dates and announced Yathramozhi, which had the story by Priyadarshan. Even after the completion of the movie, the film was on hold for over 1 year but luckily turned a box office hit, shocking everybody. Illayaraja' s music was a major highlight of this movie. The title Yathramozhi was changed as Oru Yathramozhi later.
