Yodha is a Malayalam action thriller film released in 1992, directed by Sangeeth Sivan and starring Mohanlal, Siddharth Lama, and Madhoo. The movie follows the journey of Ashokan (Mohanlal), an orphan who is adopted by a Cobra Clan and trains to become a warrior. He is given the task to save a woman, Aswathi (Madhoo), who is believed to be the reincarnation of the goddess Devi. Aswathi's family is under threat from mystical forces led by Thilakan (Siddharth Lama). The film was a massive hit at the box office and gained popularity due to its supernatural theme.

The film begins with a narration that sets the stage for the mystical journey that Ashokan is about to undertake. Ashokan, who is living with his adoptive family, is portrayed as a strong and skilled warrior. One day, he receives a strange message that he must appear before a group of people who will change his life.

When he arrives, Ashokan meets Aswathi, a beautiful girl who is being pursued by Thilakan, a feared warrior who seeks to capture her in order to possess immense power. The story unravels as to why Thilakan wants to capture her and how Ashokan becomes the protector of Aswathi.

As Ashokan embarks on this mission, he faces many tests and faces various supernatural forces that Thilakan sends to stop him from protecting Aswathi. Ashokan's journey takes him from his village to different exotic locations around the world. The film is fast-paced and filled with action and suspense, making it a thrilling ride for the audience.

The characters in the film are well developed, with Mohanlal delivering a power-packed performance as the lead. He brings depth and emotion to the character of Ashokan, which makes the audience empathize with his struggle. Madhoo's performance as Aswathi is decent and does justice to her role. Siddharth appears as the antagonist Thilakan, providing a much-needed balance to the equation.

The locations in Yodha are breathtaking and act as a backdrop for the film's mystical theme. The film's music by A. R. Rahman is an added bonus, with some memorable tracks that add to the overall impact of the movie.
