Arinthum Ariyamalum (transl. Knowingly & Unknowingly) is a 2005 Indian Tamil-language action drama film written and directed by Vishnuvardhan. It features Navdeep, Arya, Prakash Raj and Sameksha in the lead roles, while Adithya, Sangili Murugan, Krishna, and Yog Japee play pivotal roles. The film's music was composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja. "Punnagai Poo" Gheetha, a RJ at a Malaysian radio station THR Raaga, produced the film.[1]

The film was released theatrically on 20 May 2005 and opened to favorable reviews from critics.[2] It completed a 175-day run at the box office.[1][3] It was also dubbed into Telugu and released as Kalisunte.[4] The film eventually went on to receive Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut – South for Arya. In 2015, the film was released on Blu-ray in the UK.[5]


There is the innocent Brahmin boy Satya (Navdeep), who comes from Nagercoil to Chennai to join an engineering college. Then, his problems begin one by one when he encounters his father, the dreaded don Adhi Narayanan (Prakash Raj) and the latter's hot-blooded adopted son Kutty (Arya). Satya's girlfriend Sandhya (Sameksha) is accidentally wounded in a shootout between Adhi's gang and his rivals. Satya, on the prodding of ACP Thiagarajan (Adithya), is all set to identify Kutty as the culprit. Intimidated and threatened by the gang and in a state of confusion, Satya is shocked when Adhi suddenly changes track and makes friendly overtures to him, claiming kinship with him. With Kutty too going overboard with his brotherly overprotective attitude, Satya's life takes a comical and drastic turn.
