Swarna Kaduva (English: The Golden Tiger) is a 2016 Indian Malayalam-language satirical film directed by Jose Thomas, starring Biju Menon in lead role. The script is written by Babu Janardhanan.

Rinichen is a self made right-hand man of businessman Lonappan. Over the years he takes advantage of Lonappan for solving shady problems. When everything seems to boilover at the gravy train he uses the opportunity and asks Lonappan to help him settle elsewhere with a jewellery shop. Rinichen who had a hard life and was from once well known family starts care evermore for money & status and life starts to make him pay for karmic debts of his unethical previous engagements. The rest of the film explores whether Rinichen will rebound or go further down the rabbit hole.
