Arasilangkumari is a Tamil language film starring M. G. Ramachandran, Padmini and Rajasulochana in the lead roles. The film, produced by M. Somasundaram under Jupiter Pictures banner, had a score written by G. Ramanathan and was released on 1 January 1961.[2] A. S. A. Sami, who directed the major portion, was replaced by editor-turned-director A. Kasilingam, who completed the film. The film is an adaptation of the 1952 Hollywood film, Scaramouche.[3] The film did not run well. It was under production for a long time and was released very much delayed and the result was poor run. [4][5]

Plot[edit]

Arivazhagan (M.G. Ramachandran) and his sister Anbukarasi (Padmini). Anbukarasi falls in love with Vetrivelan (M.N. Nambiar), who is commander-in-chief of the royal army, but he tells Anbukarasi and Arivazhagan that he is just an ordinary citizen of the kingdom and marries Anbukarasi. Arivazhagan leaves on a mission after his sister’s marriage. After some time, Vetrivelan deserts his wife and child and returns to the palace. He starts plotting against the royal family. How his plans are set at nought by the hero and how his wife fights for him against her own brother form the rest of the film.
