Dharma Prabhu is a 2019 Indian Tamil language fantasy comedy film written and directed by Muthukumaran. This film is produced by P. Ranganathan under the production banner Sri Vaari Films. Yogi Babu plays the lead role in the film, and supporting roles are done by Radha Ravi, Sam Jones, Ramesh Thilak and Rajendran among others. Justin Prabhakaran composed the music for the film, editing was done by San Lokesh, and cinematography was by Mahesh Muthuswamy. This film shooting was held in a fictional place due to the cast and the story. Yaman stays in place called Yamaloka, so the art works were done mostly in a fictional way.
The God of death, the senior Yama (Radha Ravi), retires so that his son (Yogi Babu) has become the immediate successor. Yamaloga’s Chitragupta (Ramesh Thilak) is enraged with the decision of Yama. He cunningly plans to dethrone Yama Jr. who has just become the king of their world. Chitragupta’s plan works when Yama Jr. visits the earth and saves the life of an innocent child along with a deadly politician (Azhagam Perumal). Now, Lord Shiva (Rajendran) orders Yama Jr. to kill the politician in a week and rectify all the mistakes. Can the fun-loving Yama rectify his mistakes?
