Anbukku Naan Adimai (lit. I am a slave to love) is a Tamil language film, directed by R. Thyagarajan and produced under the Devar Films banner by C. Dandayuthapani. It stars Rajinikanth, Vijayan, Surulirajan, Thengai Srinivasan, Asokan, Sundarrajan, Sujatha, Rathi, Ramaprabha and Jayamalini.[2] The film was simultaneously made in Telugu as Mayadari Krishnudu, with slightly different supporting cast.



Vijayan, the Inspector and Rajini a thief, are brothers who get separated in childhood. When they meet in a strange situation, Vijayan is thrown out of the train and Rajini lands in the village as inspector and the events following is the story. Rathi who performs dance in the street helps Rajini and steals his heart.

Ilaiyaraaja had lot to do with the background score and had some good chance to prove in the dance sequences for Rathi. Two notable songs being the romantic love duet between Rajinikanth and Rathi and the other one is a typical dance number for Rathi.


The music was composed by Ilaiyaraaja.[3]
