Ahasin Polowata (Sinhala, White Flowers for the Dead) is a 1978 Sri Lankan drama film directed by Lester James Peries. The film stars Tony Ranasinghe as Sarath, an abusive husband who is haunted by his wife\'s death.

Peries made the film as a favour to D. B. I. S. Siriwardene who was ardent that Peries direct a film based on his wife\'s book. It was well received in Sri Lanka, critically and commercially, and made appearances at several foreign film festivals including the Cairo International Film Festival where it won the Best Film from the Third World award.
