Ezhuthatha Sattangal (lit. Unwritten laws) is a 1984 Indian Tamil-language film directed by K. Shankar, starring Sivaji Ganesan, Jaishankar and M. N. Nambiar in lead roles.[1] The film was a remake of the Malayalam film Aarambham, released on 1 September 1982. Aarambham was directed by Joshiy and was the top grosser movie of the Malayalam film industry in 1982, with an ensemble cast. Joshiy himself remade the film in Hindi as Dharm Aur Qanoon in 1984, which was again a superhit.


Three friends — a judge, a corrupt police officer and a fishmonger — are as close as family. But when the fishmonger inadvertently interferes with the police officer's smuggling scheme, his son is framed for murder. He turns to the judge for help. Meanwhile, the judge's son finds himself mixed up in yet another homicide.[2]



Soundtrack was composed by Ilaiyaraja.[3]
