Raasi (Tamil: ராசி ) (English: Luck) is a 1997 Tamil film directed by Murali-Abbas and produced by S. S. Chakravarthy. The film features Ajith Kumar and Rambha in the lead roles with Prakash Raj and Vadivelu playing supporting roles. The film was released on 14 April 1997 to negative reviews and reception.


This film is about the family of Ajith and his Uncle Bala Singh (Rambha's father). The problem between two families start when Ajith is unable to spend too much money for an occasion in his uncle's family. Whether Ajith and Rambha got united after solving out all the problems forms the crux of the story.



Shilpa Shetty was initially approached to play the leading female role but her inavailability led to the producers selecting Rambha.[1]


The film received negative reviews upon release with a critic claiming there was "nothing original in the story or its handling" whilst mentioning that "people have mostly inexplicable changes of heart throughout the movie".[2]

The film became a failure commercially and subsequently became one of five consecutive failure films starring Ajith Kumar in 1997 after the success of Kadhal Kottai.[3]
