Ganga Gowri is a 1997 Tamil comedy-drama film directed by Madheswaran. The film features Arun Vijay, Sangita and Mantra in lead roles. The film had musical score by Sirpy and was released on 5 May 1997.[1][2][3]


Shiva (Arun Vijay) and his brother Vichu (Vadivelu) are carefree youth while their father Pandiyan (Dindigul I. Leoni) is a miser. Shiva falls in love with Ganga (Mantra) at first sight and tries to seduce her with his brother's help. Ultimately, Ganga also falls in love with him. Gowri (Sangita) comes from her village and begins to work in Pandiyan's house as a maid.

A few months ago, Shiva was bitten by a snake and Muthu (Siva) saved him. Muthu cannot marry Gowri because of their horoscope. According to tradition, Gowri must get married to another man for one week and then she can marry Muthu. Shiva, grateful to Muthu for saving his life, got married to her and left the village. Thereafter, Gowri didn't want to marry Muthu anymore, Muthu was understandable and he advised her to rejoin Shiva.

Finally, Pandiyan accepts the marriage of Shiva and Ganga. What transpires later forms the crux of the story.
