Devaraagam is a 1996 Indian Malayalam-language film starring Arvind Swamy, Sridevi, KPAC Lalitha, Kozhikode Narayanan Nair, Zeenath and Nedumudi Venu.The Tamil dubbed version of this movie was also released.
The film opens with a young child climbing into a bullock cart and insisting that he also go with the cart to pick up the 'Shavundi' - a person who performs funeral rites and lives amongst the cremation grounds. Though essential to the funeral ceremonies, he is often considered frightening or unlucky. He certainly looks that way too - covered in ash and grime, sleeping in a bat-infested grove and given ominous background music. The 'Shavundi' and child begin talking in the cart ride to the funeral, and then a flashback takes us to meet Lakshmi.
Life for Lakshmi turns head over heels when Vishnu (Arvind Swamy), the new priest's son and priest-in-training, shows up in her village. Lakshmi is instantly intrigued by the new young man in town, as you can see towards the end of this beautiful.
The music was composed by M. M. Keeravani and lyrics was written by M. D. Rajendran.Malayalam versionTamil version (Dubbed)Telugu version (Dubbed)
