Indru Poi Naalai Vaa (English: Leave Now, See you tomorrow) is a 1981 Tamil film written and directed by K. Bhagyaraj. A coming-of-age story of three carefree teenagers, complete with bell bottoms and thick-framed goggles of the 1980s, the film attained cult status among viewers.[2] Chashme Buddoor had similar story with this movie. The 2003 Hindi film Nayee Padosan was partially inspired by this movie. The movie was unofficially remade as Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya in 2013.[3]


The film is all about three friends who fall for the same girl, narrated as a comedy. Palanisamy and his two friends have no job other than going behind girls. A pretty girl (Radhika) gets relocated with family to the opposite house of Palanisamy (Bhagyaraj). They three fall for the girls beauty and makes a gentleman agreement leaving the decision of the girl's choice to choose her lover. To impress her, the three attempt three different methods. Palanisamy helps Radhika's mother in domestic chores, one of the other friends joins her father's tuition to learn Hindi and the third one comes to learn martial arts from her grandfather.. the rest is all about who won the girl's heart.

Ilayaraja scored the music for the film and was a decent hit.

A 2013 movie titled Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya ran into controversy due to the plot similarities with this film. However, it went to become one of the highest-grossing movie of that year.



Bhagyaraj claimed to have written the script for Indru Poi Naalai Vaa "overnight".[2]


Malathi Rangarajan of The Hindu compared Indru Poi Naalai Vaa to Uttharavindri Ulle Vaa (1971) as both films revolved around the concept of multiple men trying to woo the same woman.[3]


The music composed by Ilaiyaraaja.[5]

Bhagyaraj's broken-Hindi dialogue "Ek gaon me, ek kisaan, raghu thatha" (lit. In a village there lived a farmer) attained immense popularity,[6] and has since become a one-line synonym for a "person trying to learn Hindi and who speaks with a horrible accent".[7]
