Anbe Aaruyire (2005) (Tamil: அன்பே ஆருயிரே, English: Darling) is a Tamil language romantic drama film directed by S.J. Suryah. The film stars him, Nila, Urvasi, Santhana Bharathy and Santhanam. The score and soundtrack are composed by A. R. Rahman. The movie was met with controversy even before release due to its original name of "B.F.," which according to the director stood for "best friend" but is also a common acronym for "blue film" in India. A contest was subsequently held in which members of the public were invited to suggest names.


Siva (S.J. Suryah) is an investigative scribe who shares a live-in relationship with rich and bratty Madhu (Nila). They have hot-headed run-ins and even hotter patch-ups.

Things come to a head when Madhu starts a restaurant with a brother of her friend. Nosey and envious Siva can't take it, and this causes a split between the duo. Fun starts as the fantasy element appears in the form of their apparitional alter egos. Eventually they come together, but there is plenty of over-the-top entertainment aimed at a post-teen youth audience.

Anbe Aaruyire features the memories of each other in a human look-alike appearances. These memories remind them of their good times and the inner love for each other which help in their reunion.



The film was given a "A" certificate by the Indian Censor Board. Anbe Aaruyire received mixed reviews upon release but became a commercial success at the box office.
