The film is based on Padmarajan's pre-published short story of the same name.This was also the first super hit film of Padmarajan as a director. The profession Pavithran is involved in earned him the title ‘Pavitran the Thief’, even if the thefts he gets involved were of petty nature. It was as the result of Pavithran’s effort to get rid of the title he had with his name that he visited Mamachan the mill owner. Pavithran’s request for a job in the mill was turned down by Mamachan. But a theft that occurs in Mamachan’s house changes the fate of Pavithran’s life forever.
