Kangalin Vaarthaigal (transl. Words from the eyes) is a 1998 Indian Tamil-language drama film directed by Muktha S. Sundar. It stars Vikram, newcomer Sriram, Prema and Karan. Music by Ilayaraja.[1] The film was a remake of 1996, Kannada film Nammoora Mandara Hoove.



The film marked Muktha Srinivasan's 50th year in the film industry. Though Vikram's big budget film, Ullaasam (1997), became a box office failure - the producers still offered him the chance to star in a new project, although they felt that he could not carry a film on his own. Newcomer Sriram, who was a medical student, was subsequently added to the cast.[2]


Music was composed by Ilaiyaraaja. All the songs from the Kannada film were retained, which had also been composed by the Ilaiyaraaja.[3]

A critic wrote "eventhough the basic plot is the same old love triangle, the scenes in the movie feels fresh".[4] A reviewer from The Hindu wrote "the concluding portions where the three meet in a clash of emotions, the boys being beaten by a level- headed girl, requires some more depth in handling."[5]
