Bharathan or Bharathan Effect is a 2007 Malayalam science fiction-thriller film written by Madhu Muttam, directed by Anil Das and starring Biju Menon in the title role. The film is about a genius inventor who makes a small gadget which can fly without fuel using the concept of antigravity. The film released with the tag "The First Science Fiction Thriller in Malayalam", although another movie of the same genre, titled Karutha Rathrikal, was released in 1967.
Bharathan was panned by the critics and audiences alike and its scientific accuracy was questioned. It was the second film scripted by Madhu Muttam, whose 1993 psychological thriller Manichitrathazhu was hailed by critics as one of the greatest thrillers ever made in India.
