Kauravar (Malayalam: കൗരവര്‍) is a 1992 Malayalam crime drama film directed by Joshiy, written by Lohithadas, and starring Mammootty, Vishnuvardhan, Thilakan, Murali, Anju, Babu Antony and Bheeman Raghu.

The film was remade in Telugu as Khaidi Garu with Mohan Babu. It was also remade into Kannada in 2001 by the title Devasura and starring Devraj and B. C. Patil.


A gang led by Aliyar (Thilakan) holds a grudge against Police Officer Haridas (Vishnuvardhan) who was responsible for the death of Antony's (Mammootty) wife and daughter as well as Aliyar's Wife and two daughters 12 years ago and sent Antony to jail. When Antony is finally freed, he reunites with his old gang and they plan to kill Haridas. Antony then discovers that his daughter who he thought had died is actually still alive and was raised by Haridas as one of his daughters. Antony meets his long-lost daughter but Aliyar and gang are not ready to leave Haridas. Antony pleads to the gang to leave Haridas alone but fails to stop them. During the struggle, Antony gets shot by Aliyar and in his defence kills Aliyar.

In the climax of the movie, when Rajagopal (Murali), who was a friend of Haridas, is about to tell who is the actual daughter of Antony, he stops him saying that all the three girls are his daughters.



The film's soundtrack was composed by S P Venkatesh. Lyrics were penned by Kaithapram.
