Pavam Pavam Rajakumaran is a 1990 Malayalam film directed by Kamal and written by Sreenivasan. The film is based on the short story ‘kottu baakki’ by SK Pottekkad. This film stars Sreenivasan, Rekha, Siddique, Kottayam Santha, Jagadish and Maniyanpilla Raju. Jayaram appears in an extended guest role in the film which was a huge hit at the box office.[1] The sub-plots of the movie was used in the 1991 Tamil movie Gopura Vasalile.


The film is about 4 parallel college teachers- Gopalakrishnan, Aravindhan,Sujanapalan and Gangan who reside in the same rented house. Gopalakrishnan is a miser and apart from sharing the rent, does not share/contribute money for any household or luxury items. Due to Gopalakrishnan's bizarre and timid personality his friends along with Sankaraettan fool him by posting him love letters in the name of a fictitious girl named Radhika. Gopalakrishnan meets Radhika-a banker working near his college and mistakes it to be the one who has been posting him the love letters. There is a change in Gopalakrishnan's frugal behaviour and his friends enjoy by posting love letters regularly.

Gopalakrishnan gradually develops an intimate relationship with Radhika but all his efforts to meet her are in vain. When he actually meets Radhika, she fails to identify and treats him as a maniac. Gopalakrishnan understands that his friends had fooled him and assures Radhika not to meet her again. Heartbroken he leaves his job and the city. Aravindhan,Sujanapalan and Gangan feel guilty for what they have done and fail to find Gopalakrishnan's whereabouts.

After 5 years Aravindhan receives a letter from Gopalakrishnan inviting him and his friends to Lovedale, a hill station in Tamil Nadu. It is from this point that the film actually begins. When they arrive at Lovedale they are pleasantly surprised to see Gopalakrishnan and Radhika being happily married. Gopalakrishnan reveals that he got a job in Lovedale as a teacher and accidentally met Radhika, who was posted in Lovedale as a banker. It was destiny which made them meet again and get married.
