The movie Aparan, released in 1988, is an enthralling suspense thriller which features talented actors Jayaram, Shobana and Madhu in the lead roles. Directed by P. Padmarajan, this movie follows the story of a young man who finds himself trapped in a web of deceit and lies after witnessing a brutal murder. The plot of Aparan centers around Vishwanathan (Jayaram), a young man who lives a simple, ordinary life with his loving wife, Ammu (Shobana). One fateful day, Vishwanathan witnesses the brutal murder of a man at the hands of a group of goons. In a moment of panic, he flees the scene of the crime, but not before being spotted by one of the killers.

From that point on, Vishwanathan finds himself being relentlessly pursued by the murderers, who want to silence him before he can reveal their identity to the authorities. With his life in danger, Vishwanathan is forced to seek refuge in a remote village, where he is taken in by a kindly couple, Madhavan (Madhu) and his wife, Namboodiri (K. P. A. C. Lalitha).

However, Vishwanathan's troubles are far from over. As he tries to piece together the events of the murder, he realizes that the killers are someone very close to him, someone he would never suspect. With each passing day, Vishwanathan finds himself in deeper trouble as he tries to unravel the mystery of the murder while also keeping himself alive.

The movie Aparan is a masterpiece in terms of its storytelling, direction, and acting. Jayaram perfectly portrays Vishwanathan, a man who is caught in the middle of a dangerous game of cat and mouse, and his portrayal of the character's dilemma and anguish is flawless. Shobana as his wife, Ammu, is endearing and lovable and perfectly complements Jayaram’s character as his pillar of strength.

Madhu, as the village elder, is a man of few words but exudes immense wisdom and kindness as he helps Vishwanathan escape the clutches of the murderers. K. P. A. C. Lalitha as Madhu’s wife, Namboodiri, is excellent in her supporting role, playing the role of the doting and affectionate wife with ease.

The music of the movie, composed by Johnson, is hauntingly beautiful and perfectly captures the mood of the movie. The cinematography by Venu is also outstanding and captures the beauty of the rural setting beautifully.

Overall, Aparan is a movie that will keep audiences at the edge of their seats until the very end. It is a gripping thriller with a beautifully woven storyline full of suspense, twists and turns, and emotionally satisfying characters. The movie is a must-watch not only for Malayalam movie buffs but for all those who appreciate good cinema in general.

In conclusion, the movie Aparan is a timeless classic that will be remembered for years to come as a masterpiece of storytelling, acting, and direction. It is a testament to the immense talent of the late P. Padmarajan, who left a lasting legacy in the Malayalam film industry. The movie has stood the test of time and remains one of the best suspense thrillers ever made in Indian cinema.
