Mouna Guru (English: The Silent Teacher) is a 2011 Tamil thriller film directed by Santha Kumar and produced by M. K. Thamizharasu. The film featured Arulnidhi and Iniya in the lead roles, with John Vijay and Uma Riyaz Khan in supporting roles. Mouna guru illustrates a misunderstood college youth becomes unwittingly involved in a crime plot that spirals his life out of order. The film, which has music composed by S. Thaman, released on 16 December 2011 to highly positive reviews,subsequently becoming a sleeper hit.The film was remade in Kannada as Guru (2012) and in Telugu as Shankara (2015). The movie was remade by AR Murugadoss in Hindi as Akira.

College goer Karunakaran (Arulnidhi) always finds it difficult to adjust with the society that he lives. As a result, he is unable to control his anger and often ends up with some trouble. His unpredictable behaviour become a constant worry for his mother and brother.

A series of incidents forces him to leave his home town Madurai and end up in Chennai. Despite scoring high marks in school, he joins a local arts college in the city and stays in a hostel where the trouble begins. Meanwhile, while traveling from Bangalore to Chennai,

Assistant Commissioner Marimuthu (John Vijay), Inspector Rajendran (Madhu), Sub-Inspector Selvam (Balakrishnan) and Sgt/Head Constable Perumalsamy (Krishnamurthy) witness a car accident. When they are about to take the victim (son of a Bangalore-based business tycoon) to a nearby hospital, they come across a huge stash of cash.

The policemen kill the (half dead) victim and flee to Chennai with the money. Then the sincere police officer Palaniammal (Uma Riyaz Khan) takes up this case. A cluster of lies, ego clash at the hostel and family's ignorance brings innocent Karunakaran into this crime plot. The rest is a racy roller-coaster ride that forms the climax.
