Kadhal Kirukkan (transl. Love crazy guy) is a 2003 Indian Tamil-language romantic thriller film, written and directed by Sakthi Chidambaram, starring Parthiban, Richa Pallod, Vineeth and Vadivelu. The film, produced by A. Ahamed, had a musical score by Deva and was released on 12 December 2003.
Saravanan (Parthiban) and Selvi Maha (Richa Pallod) are childhood friends. Saravanan is so madly in love with Maha that it turns him into a killer. Knifing or gunning down anyone who comes in the way of Maha and himself, is almost child's play for Saravanan. From an old man to a posse of policemen, his victims are many and the mayhem is endless. But listlessness and dejection set in when Maha tells him that she is not in love with him. And then it's time for the denouement.
