Chinna Mapillai (English: Younger Son-in-law) is a 1993 Indian Tamil-language film starring Prabhu and Sukanya in lead roles. The film was a commercial success upon release in January 1993. It was remade in Telugu as Chinna Alludu (1993), in Hindi as Coolie No.1 (1995) and in Kannada as Coolie Raja (1999).

Plot[edit]

Thangavelu (Prabhu) is a kindhearted poor man who works as a coolie in a bus stand. Ambakavanan (Visu), a marriage broker wants him to pose as a rich man from Singapore and marry Janaki (Sukanya) to break the arrogance and her money-minded father Periya Pannai (Radha Ravi). Periya Pannai finds out that he is a coolie, but Thangavelu brilliantly lies that it is his younger brother. How Thangavelu reforms both of them forms the story.
