Pandian is a 1992 action Tamil language movie directed by the Tamil director SP. Muthuraman. It stars Rajinikanth, Kushboo, Janagaraj and Jayasudha in the lead roles. It was released on October 25, 1992. Its music was composed by Ilaiyaraaja.[1]

The film was a remake of the Kannada film Bombay Dada starring Tiger Prabhakar, Vani Vishwanath, Vajramuni and Lakshmi. Prabhakar, the director and hero of the Kannada film, portrayed the negative role in the Tamil version. The film was dubbed in Hindi in 1998 as "Kanoon Ka Khiladi."


The film is about Pandian (Rajinikanth) who wants to avenge the death of his sister's (Jaysudha) husband's ( Charan Raj) death, so he joins the murderer's gang and how he takes revenge forms the crux of "Pandian".



Rajinikanth decide to make a low-budget film with S. P. Muthuraman. Muthuraman turned producer for this film under his production banner "Visalam Productions" named after his mother inspite of being a producer, Rajini took care of production duties of the film[2]. Tragedy struck before release, when Muthuraman's wife faced demise[3].


Music is composed by Ilayaraja while lyrics written by Vaali and Panju Arunachalam. Ilayaraja's son Karthik Raja composed "Pandianin Rajyathil".


This was Rajinikanth's last film with SP. Muthuraman. This is one of the few Rajini films which did not have any tracks sung by S.P. Balasubramaniam The movie was released along with the Kamal's Blockbuster Thevar Magan, but failed miserably at the Box Office.
