The three brothers think the world of their sister Rasamani (Kaveri). A rich man ('Pyramid' Natrajan) from the neighboring village feels insulted when Murali mishandles his son and to take revenge, makes Rasamani his daughter-in-law. Starting with taking away all of the brothers' wealth, he insults them at every opportunity while ill-treating Rasamani. At last in the climax Rasamani's husband and father-in-law reforms accepts her and her brothers.

Production[edit]

R. B. Choudary's financial problems meant that the director K. S. Ravikumar financed the first schedule of the film by himself. The producer acknowledged and thanked the director at the audio launch function.[1]

Review[edit]

It received good response from ladies. But the movie generally got negative reviews as it was felt that the story is not new. Malathi Rangarajan from thehindu.com stated Samudhiram is a story of the sincere affection that exists in a family - love that is more filial than fraternal; attachment that is more unnatural than normal.[2] Screenindia wrote that stars performed well in the film.[3]
