Raja (Tamil: ராஜா) is a 2002 Tamil film directed by Ezhil which stars Ajith Kumar, Jyothika and Priyanka Trivedi in the lead roles.It was dubbed into telugu as Nuvvu Naaku Kavali


Ajith is paranoid about getting married. Jyothika arrives at his place and begins to compel him to get married to her. The reason: Ajith was pouring his love out to someone else thinking that she was Jyothika.

Under the cover of darkness Jyothika confesses her love for Ajith. Thinking that it was Priyanka Trivedi who was speaking to him, Ajith begins to love her. Suddenly, a villain pops out of nowhere and causes the death of Priyanka. Then, finally, after dilly dallying for a very long time, the story ends with the coming together of the lead pair of Ajith and Jyothika.



A fight scene was picturised on Ajit, Sonu and 40 stunt-men on a train that travelled from Mettupalayam to Ooty. For the scenes the train was hired for four days at a cost of about 40 lakh.[2]


A reviewer described the film as "boasting of a handsome star cast, but it's hardly enough to salvage the film", describing the script as "uninspiring and mediocre", and the narration as "lackadaisical".[3] Malathi Rangarajan of The Hindu also criticized the execution of the film citing that the film was "disappointing".[4]

Soon after release, Ajith revealed that Raja would be his final romantic film citing that in the future he would do only action films.
