Deiva Vaakku (transl. God's promise) is a 1992 Indian Tamil-language drama film, directed by M. S. Madhu, starring Karthik and Revathi. The film, produced by T. Siva, had musical score by Ilaiyaraaja and was released on 11 September 1992. The film generated average profits at the box office. The film was a remake of the Telugu film Sankeertana (1987).
Amsaveni (Revathi) after channeling the voice of the Goddess in childhood, is treated as such by her grateful village after water is found after a drought. Her Duplicate elder brother Vallathar (Vijayakumar) exploits his young sister's powers to make himself rich.
When Amsaveni falls in love with misunderstood drunk-with-heart-of-gold Thambidurai (Karthik), Vallathar is unhappy with her decision, due to the difference in status between the two and, more importantly, he can see his money supply running out. So Vallathar tries to put Thambidurai off in various ways from marrying his sister.

The Indian Express wrote "Here the storyline is thin, the script is not that engaging, but the effective camera work [..] A superb performance by petite Revathi [..] saves the film from being run-of-the-mill". New Straits Times wrote "This movie should be of special interest to those who frequently seek advice from temple mediums".
