Ayitham is a Malayalam movie from 1987 starring Mohanlal, Ambika, and Innocent. The movie is directed by Suresh Unnithan and produced by Kunju Mohammed. The story of the film is written by Kaloor Dennis and the music is composed by Shyam. The movie follows the story of Venugopal, played by Mohanlal, who is an orphan and a civil engineer by profession. He falls in love with his colleague, Chitra, played by Ambika. Chitra comes from a wealthy family and her father opposes her love for Venugopal. Despite her father's disapproval, they get married against his wishes. The couple starts their life together with Venugopal taking up a job in a construction company.

The construction company is run by a corrupt owner who is involved in illegal activities. Venugopal gets entangled in the criminal world when he is forced to sign a document stating that the construction work has been completed, even when it is not. Soon after, the building collapses and many workers are killed. Venugopal is blamed for the accident and is arrested.

The rest of the movie revolves around Venugopal's fight to prove his innocence and the hardships he and his wife Chitra face due to his imprisonment. Innocent plays the role of Venugopal's friend, who helps him in his struggle for justice.

The movie is a gripping tale of love, betrayal, and redemption. Mohanlal delivers a powerful performance as Venugopal, a man who is wrongly accused and jailed. Ambika gives an excellent performance as Chitra, who stands by her husband even in his darkest moments. Innocent, as always, adds a touch of comedy to the movie with his humor and wit.

The music by Shyam is a highlight of the movie, with beautiful melodies that perfectly capture the emotions of the characters. The cinematography is also praiseworthy, with stunning visuals that bring the story to life.

Overall, Ayitham is a must-watch movie for fans of Mohanlal and Malayalam cinema in general. The movie has a strong storyline, excellent performances, and beautiful music that make it a classic.
