Nayagan (1987) is a Tamil feature film written and directed by Mani Ratnam. Nayagan means 'The Hero' or 'The Leader' in Tamil.
Nayagan has been called "The Godfather" of Tamil cinema, as it portrays the life of an underworld don in Bombay (now Mumbai). While the film draws inspiration from The Godfather trilogy, it is adapted to an Indian scenario.
The story revolves around the life of a real-life underworld don called Varada or Varadarajan Mudaliar. The film sympathetically depicts the struggle of South Indians living in Mumbai.
Nayagan is in the Time Magazine "All-Time 100 Best Films" list, issued in 2005
