Superman (Malayalam: സൂപ്പർമാൻ) is 1997 Malayalam film by Rafi Mecartin starring Jayaram and Shobana in lead roles. The film was produced and distributed by Siddique, Lal and Azeez under the banner of Kavyachandrika Release.


Nithya (Shobana) is the deputy commissioner of the city who lives with her grandfather (Janardhanan) since both her parents were killed in an accident. She was assigned to investigate a corruption case involving the Home Minister and his friend, a business man called Rajan Phillip (Cochin Haneefa). Unknowingly she was helped in the investigation by a criminal nicknamed Superman (Jayaram). Superman aka Hareendran nurtures a vendetta against the Home minister and Rajan Phillip and uses Nithya to trap his enemies. In the process Superman uses the Judiciary as his weapon, by providing vital evidence to Nithya at times. In order to collect evidence Superman himself breaks the law, but as it is for the greater good Nithya looks the other way.
