Amaran is a 1992 Tamil language mob film directed and produced by K. Rajeshwar. The film features Karthik and Bhanupriya in the lead roles, with Radha Ravi, Prathap K. Pothan and Shammi Kapoor playing supporting roles. The film had musical score by Adithyan and was released on 15 January 1992. Actor Karthik became a playback singer for the first time in this film which completed a 100-day run at the box-office.

The movie was one of the first in Tamil cinema with many violent sequences and brutal scenes, some of which were censored. The second sequel of the movie Amaran 2 currently on shooting progress under same director K.Rajeshwar and expected to be released on middle of 2016.

An orphaned kid (Karthik) helps Govindan (Vijayakumar) escape from a bunch of gangsters. The kid is named Amaran ('The immortal') by the grateful Govindan and is brought up by him. After Govindan's demise, his wife (Manjula Vijayakumar) raises Amaran who grows up to become a kind-hearted slum lord. One day, Amaran encounters a strange man, Raja Varma (Prathap K. Pothan) who repeatedly persuades him to take on a heartless don named Aandava Perumal (Radha Ravi), who has a violent and brutal past. 

Amaran keeps ignoring Raja Varma but after Raja Varma is murdered by Perumal's goons, he learns that Aandava Perumal had also destroyed his own family when he was a child. Amaran gives refuge to Raja Varma's daughter Sivagaami (Bhanupriya) and they fall in love with each other.

Amaran soon starts sparring with Perumal with deadly consequences to Amaran's adopted family. Sivagaami and a grievously injured Amaran escape to Goa, where they are taken care of by an underworld don Menon (Shammi Kapoor). Amaran continues to work for him for a while and gets married to Sivagaami.

After a few years he returns to Tamil Nadu to take on his sworn enemy and a bloody conflict ensues. During this conflict, Amaran's son gets killed and the film ends with Amaran killing Aandava Perumal while saying, "this wouldn't have happened if you had not killed my son".
