Two superstars, Mohanlal and Suresh Gopi, come together in director N R Sanjeev's Malayalam movie Janakan.
Many years ago, they had appeared together in films like Irupatham Noottandu, Manu Uncle, Manichithra thazhu, Raksthasakshikal Zindabad, Pakal Nakshtathrangal and recently in Twenty 20.
Jyothirmayi and Kaveri play the heroines. Kaveri plays Suresh Gopi's wife.
Mohanlal plays Surya Narayanan, a lawyer while Suresh Gopi is Vishwam, a man who has been convicted of murder. The lawyer happens to be one of best in the state. It is the brilliance of Adv Surya Narayanan that saves Vishwam and two of his fellow convicts, Monai (Biju Menon) and Pazhani (Harisree Ashokan).
Vishwam, Pazhani and Monai are friends involved in deadly crimes which set the cops after them. The friends reach out to Surya Narayanan for help. The lawyer, after hearing them, warned that they will be hanged to death if found guilty. The story then takes an interesting turn from this point.

Sanjeev Sankar is the cinematographer. Lyrics by Gireesh Puthanchery have been set to music by M Jayachandran.
