En Jeevan Paduthu

En Jeevan Paduthu is a 1988 Tamil-language Indian romance film directed by R. Sundarrajan, starring Karthik and Saranya in lead roles, supported by Sudha, Captain Raju and Kapil Dev. The movie was dubbed into Telugu as "Akarshana", and some scenes were re-edited, as the Tamil version was not a box office success. However, the soundtrack was very popular, especially in Tamil.


Narmada (Saranya Ponvannan) joins a new college, as she feels so bored sitting alone in her house. Her father is a businessman. In college, she happens to see the paintings and books written by Surendran. She is very much fascinated by him, but unable to find him in college. She is shocked when she finds Surendran (Karthik) has already committed suicide. Narmada frequently visits his grave in the following days, and the ghost of Surendran appears, advising her to cease visiting his grave. Those around Narmada suspect that she is mentally ill, as nobody else can see Surendran.
