Jaganmohini is a 2009 Indian Tamil-language horror film directed by N. K. Viswanathan. It is based on B. Vittalacharya's cult horror film of the same name which itself was a remake of 1951 Kannada film Jaganmohini. It stars Raja, Namitha and Nila. It was partially reshot into Telugu with the same name (with Ali replacing Vadivelu) and dubbed in Bengali as Mayabini Kanya. The film bombed at the box office. The film was also dubbed in Hindi under the same name.


The movie begins at Pachai Theevu, ruled by a mighty king (Narasimha Raju). His son and prince Jagathalapradhapan (Raja) is a valorous youth who sets out on a mission to capture pirates in the sea. He lands at Sangu Theevu, where the head of the sea pirates Alai Kallan lives. Jagathalapradhapan comes across Mohini (Namitha) from the local fishing community on the island.
