Aanandha Kummi is a 1983 Tamil Indian feature film directed by Bala Krishnan and produced by Jeeva Ilaiyaraaja for Ilaiyaraaja Pictures. The songs were recorded in Bombay with R.D.Burman orchestra. The film stars Ashwini and a newcomer Balachandran in the lead roles. The newcomer referred to here is Balachandran, a native of Thrissur, Kerala, who has also acted as hero in Malayalam movies like Kochuthemmadi directed by M.T.Vasudevan Nair and Inakkili directed by Joshy. He had adopted the screen name Manoj for his Malayalam movies.[1]


The pannaiyar of a small village is highly respected due to his generosity and kindness. His wife is equally well-liked and the loving couple have a son, Jeeva (Balachandar). The pannaiyar's right hand man is Azhagiri, a man who's feared throughout the town as he's prone to violence. However, he will only resort to violence when he feels an injustice or wrong warrants his intervention. Azhagiri's sister, Devanai, is a young widow with a daughter, Selvi (Ashwini). The pannaiyar and his wife financially support Devanai's family. Selvi and Jeeva go to school together and are friends from childhood. As they grow older, their friendship grows into love. They go away to attend the same college. While they're away, long brewing secrets between the two families come to light and drastically change both families' circumstances. Jeeva and Selvi return home to a much-altered situation and face new challenges to their love that they must overcome.



Soundtrack was composed by Ilaiyaraja.[2] Lyrics were written by Panchu Arunachalam, Vairamuthu and Gangai Amaran.
