Neram (English: Time) is a 2013 Indian bilingual black comedy-thriller film, written, directed and edited by Alphonse Putharen in his directorial debut. Simultaneously made in the Malayalam and Tamil languages, it stars Nivin Pauly, Nazriya Nazim and Bobby Simha in both versions. Supporting roles were played by Manoj K. Jayan, Shammi Thilakan, and Lalu Alex in Malayalam and Nassar, Thambi Ramiah, John Vijay and Shabareesh Varma portrayed the characters in Tamil.

The whole film is set within one day in Chennai. The music was scored by debutant Rajesh Murugesan while Anand C. Chandran handled the cinematography.The Malayalam version released on 10 May 2013, while the Tamil version released on 17 May. The film's both versions received positive reviews upon release. The film was a commercial success at the box-office.

The film is remade in Telugu cinema as Run starring Sundeep Kishan and in Marathi as Time Bara Vait starring Bhushan Pradhan.
Neram is all about the life of Mathew (Vetri in Tamil version; played by Nivin Pauly) and Jeena (Veni in Tamil; played by Nazriya Nazim).
Mathew is a computer engineering graduate but lost his job. His life is a little complicated now, because he has taken a loan from a private moneylender Vatti Raja (Bobby Simha) and is not able to repay the amount. Jeena's dad Johnykutty (Lalu Alex) (Saravanar in Tamil; played by Thambi Ramaiah) denies her marriage with Mathew as he is jobless.

Jeena decides to elope with Mathew and Mathew's friend John gives him the money for paying off his debt to Vatti Raja. On their way, Jeena's chain is snatched and Mathew's money is stolen. VattiRaja calls him and asks him to settle the money within 5 in the evening.

Johnykutty lodges a complaint with SI Ukken Tintu (Shammi Thilakan) (Katta kunju in Tamil; played by John Vijay) against Mathew on charges of kidnapping Jeena and gives his number. The sub-inspector calls him and tells him that he should come along with Jeena to the police station within 5 in the evening. But problems are yet to come; Mathew's brother-in-law asks some amount of money from him to start a business (even that is scheduled for five in the evening). On the other hand, Jeena is kidnapped by Vatti Raja's men assuming her to be other guy's girlfriend who also has to return money to Raja.

Mathew comes across the same guy and decides to snatch his chain. But unfortunately at the moment he tries to snatch the chain, the guy meets with an accident and Mathew takes him to a hospital. The guy's brother RayBan (Manoj K. Jayan) (Dhandapani in Tamil; played by Nassar), who has influence assures Mathew of a job in his company. Suddenly, SI Ukken Tintu arrives there and says that Vatti Raja died in an accident and a flashback reveals that Lighthouse (RJ Ramesh Thilak), the guy who stole Jeena's chain and Mathew's money had borrowed some money from Raja too.

He plots with two other in having the money for themselves and to steal Vatti Raja's car. While, the plans works out perfectly Vatti Raja's men went behind the car and Raja goes behind the other guy. In the chase Raja is hit by an auto and dies. Coincidentally, the auto driver was the driver who hit RayBan's brother Manik with his vehicle too.

Last of all, Mathew meets the guys who stole his money and involves in a brawl with them. He finds his money and a chain inside the car and also finds Jeena in the car's rear (Vatti Raja hid her in his car). Mathew gives the money to his brother-in-law and the movie ends with a happy note.
