Muniyandi Vilangyial Moonramandu (Tamil: முனியாண்டி,விலங்கியல் மூண்றாமாண்டு; English: Muniyandi, Third Year Zoology) is a 2008 Tamil film directed by Thirumurugan. Bharath, Poorna and Ponvannan play the lead roles with Vadivelu. It was produced by Malaysian-based firm Lotus Five Star in association with Thiru Pictures.

Plot[edit]

Muniyandi (Bharath), a third year college student and the darling son of Muthumani (Ponvannan) comes across as an average fun-loving guy.

Matters become colourful when a demure young daughter, Madumitha (Poorna) of a local bigwig, Ramaiyya gives first preference to the members of his caste. Madumitha makes a coquettish play for all of Muniyandi's friends, but hits it off with him first.

Following a heated skirmish in the caste-dominated college elections, the two fall in love. Or so you think. Also part of the mix is Sorimuthu Ayyanar (Vadivelu), who raises some laughs as the local witch-doctor, complete with bells and saffron cloth regalia.

But everything goes topsy-turvy when, once Madumitha's marriage is arranged, she turns around and says that she was never in love with Muniyandi in the first place. Furious, the guy thrashes her with his slippers and sets fire to her father's coconut grove.

It is little things like these that set this movie slightly apart from others in the same genre; the hero and heroines come across as genuine characters, angry, sad and sorrowful. Madumitha is no slinking pathetic thing either; she gives back as good as she gets.

Its time for the caste card to be played again and as Muniyandi discovers the secret behind his brothers death. Muni's brother was killed when he tries to help his friend who is in love with a girl of the other caste. Muni participates in college elections to go against Madhu's words. On the day of nomination Muni realizes that Madhu love him truly but had reverted from her feelings due to the request from his father to save his life. Muni convinces college students from conducting election in college and put a stop caste game in college. Ramaiyya and the other caste head to killed by Raju (Muni's brothers friend and the old girl's lover).

Muni with his fathers acceptance returns to Madhu (who was waiting for him near the temple) and unites with her.
