Virus is a 2007 Malayalam-language Indian feature film directed by Shankar, starring Abhinay, Sajitha Beti and Shankar himself. The film was critically acclaimed and had a premiere held at Thiruvananthapuram Kalabhavan theatre.[1][2]


'Virus' is the story of lovers, Abhinay and Sajitha Beti, both working in a software firm. One day Sajitha Beti disappears from Abhinay's life. Shankar, brother of the Sajitha helps the lovers to reunite in spite of Sajitha Beti's dreaded disease, which was kept hidden from Abhinay. The film shows the life after for AIDS patients and gives the message that, society should be kind to AIDS patients and consider them as normal humans.

The film travels in documentary mode sometimes, as it concentrates on AIDS disease itself.
