Vidheyan is based on a story by the famous novelist Paul Zacharia
called "Bhaskara Pattelar and My Life".
Vidheyan examines the immobilizing force of power and a man's eventual
freedom from it. A degenerate, whimsical landlord (Bhaskara Pattelar played
by Mammootty), takes over the life of Thommi (played by Gopa Kumar), an
immigrant landless laborer, making him a mute and passive accessory to
many acts of untold cruelty. Finally, when nemesis overtakes
him, Thommi is still at his side, but no longer in thrall.
