Bhuvana Oru Kelvi Kuri (English: Bhuvana is a question mark) is a 1977 Tamil-language Indian feature film directed by SP. Muthuraman, starring Sivakumar, Rajinikanth and Sumithra.


Bhuvana Oru Kelvi Kuri is a gripping family and emotional drama starring Sivakumar, Sumithra and Rajinikanth in lead roles.


 Sivakumar and Rajini are two good friends. While Sivakumar is a diplomatic person who believes in practical life, Rajini is a straightforward person who believes in honesty. Sivakumar is a womaniser who loves many women at the same time, while Rajini, his roommate falls in love with Jaya. Jaya dies after a while and Rajini tries to attempt suicide but Sivakumar saves him. Sumithra becomes the victim of Sivakumar and bears his child. Sivakumar gets married to a rich girl. Rajini marries Sumithra. The film is the conflict between Sivakumar and Rajini on values of life.


Panchu Arunachalam and SP Muthuraman initially wanted Rajini to play a small role in a film called "Avalukku Oru Aasai" but after meeting him duo found him to have "brightness" they decided to make him a solo hero in their project.[1]

This film had an interesting role swap as Sivakumar, the hero having a clean positive image doing the anti-hero role, while Rajinikanth, an established villain doing the role of a positive hero. This role swap helped both the actors in experimenting the roles. The success of the film paved way for Rajinikanth, the opportunity to do more hero oriented films.[2]


Ilaiyaraaja scored the music for this film. The songs "Vizhiyilae Malarnthathu" and "Raaja Enbar Manthri Enbar" sung by S. P. Balasubramaniam are run away hits.[3]


The film was remade in Malayalam as Munnettam with Mammootty reprising Rajinikanth' s role and Ratheesh doing Sivakumar' s role. The film created a huge impact in Mammootty's career.


In June 2013, A. Muthusamy of Honey Bee Music enhanced the songs from their original version on the film's soundtrack album to 5.1 surround sound.[4] G. Dhananjayan wrote that it is one of five films the actor considers "close to his heart"; the other four are Mullum Malarum (1978), Aarilirunthu Arubathu Varai (1979) and Enkeyo Ketta Kural (1982) and Sri Raghavendrar (1985).[5]
