Vadakkumnadhan (Malayalam: വടക്കുംനാഥന്‍) is a 2006 Malayalam drama film, directed by Shajoon Kariyal, written by Gireesh Puthenchery, starring Mohanlal, Padmapriya and Kavya Madhavan in the lead roles. The film is an unusual love story, shot mostly in the scenic foothills of the Himalayas. This film was a critical and commercial success.


Iringannoor Bharathan Pisharody (Mohanlal), professor at the Sanskrit University, a very knowledgeable man with a keen interest in the Vedas, astrology and Kathakali, author of several critical works and winner of numerous awards, is the central character of Vadakkum Nathan. Meera (Padmapriya) is his student and murapennu (fiance, the girl his is going to marry). Though Bharathan does not encourage it, Meera often tries to take advantage of the relationship even in class.Both families have agreed to their wedding and a date has been fixed. But when the auspicious day dawns and the bride arrives at the mandapam (wedding venue), she realizes to her utter dismay and desolation that the groom has disappeared.Gloom settles over the household. Meera is inconsolable.

Years pass. No one knows Bharathan's whereabouts, Even death is not ruled out.Then one day his mother and younger brother on a pilgrimage to the holy shrines of Haridwar, Kedarnath, Rishikesh and Rudraprayag, meet Bharathan on the banks of the Holy Ganges. From there unfolds the touching story of Vadakkum Nathan.
