Enga Thambi (transl. Our Younger Brother) is a 1993 Tamil-language romantic action film directed by Sabapathy Dekshinamurthy. The film stars Prashanth and Subhashri, with Lakshmi, Nagesh and Nassar in supporting roles. Ilaiyaraaja composed the film's music.[1] The film was also later dubbed and released in Telugu as Allari Prema.[2]

Plot[edit]

Pichumani is an orphan, and Muthu brings him up. Pichumani falls in love with Indu, but her uncle Dinakar, a police officer, opposes this. Nevertheless, Indu is determined to wed her first love. To avert this, Dinakar hatches a plan through which Pichumani is imprisoned. When Indu gives up hope, advocate Shanthi emerges to fight his case. It is revealed that Shanthi and Dinakar have been in a relationship earlier. In the end, Dinakar is arrested and discovers that Pichumani is his son and that Shanthi is his mother. The film ends with Pichumani and Indu getting married.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Subhashri, sister of Kannada actress Malasri, was recommended by Thiagarajan to be the heroine of the film. He had also recommended the actress to be a part of Shankar's Gentleman, while the director had met with Prashanth and his father Thiagarajan, while considering the casting for Kadhalan.[citation needed]

Release[edit]

The film opened to mixed reviews, with a critic from The New Straits Times noting that the film "makes best of a weak story", praising the performances of Prashanth and Nassar.[3] The Indian Express wrote "S. D. Saba [..] handles the script and his artists with confidence and his narration is fairly neat."[4]

Songs[edit]

The music of the film was composed by Ilaiyaraaja and released by actor Rajinikanth at a launch event. The lyrics were written by Vaali, Pulamaipithan, Muthulingam and Ponnadiyan.[5]
