Karisakattu Poove is a 2000 Tamil drama film directed by Kasthuri Raja. The film features Napoleon, Vineeth, Khushbu Sundar and Ravali in lead roles. The film, produced by Vijayalakshmi Kasthuri Raja, had musical score by Ilaiyaraaja and was released on 23 June 2000 to negative reviews.[1][2]


The young man Pounrasu (Vineeth) has a brother Kottaisaamy (Napoleon) and a sister (Kovai Sarala). Pounrasu is secretly in love with his sister's daughter Nagamani (Ravali). Pounrasu then returns to his native village after studying in the city and he still loves her.

Nagamani's father (Manivannan) fixes up Nagamani's marriage with a rowdy for money but her mother wants her brother Pounrasu to marry Nagamani. Finally, Kottaisaamy gets engaged with Nagamani and Pounrasu is unable to speak up against his brother.

Kottaisaamy's family and his uncle's family are in a feud for several years only because Kottaisaamy sends his uncle in jail. Kottaisaamy and Nagamani get ready for the wedding. Meanwhile, Sankarapandian, his uncle, manages to provide a wrong message to Kottaisaamy that Aandal's marriage was a forced marriage. Kottaisaamy immediately cancels Aandal's marriage and Kottaisaamy is forced to marry Aandal (Khushbu Sundar). Nagamani feels betrayed and cannot forget her beloved Kottaisaamy.

Kottaisaamy and Aandal could not live happily and they are in conflicts all the time. One day, Aandal discovers that Pounrasu and his uncle were, in fact, the culprits who forced Kottaisaamy to marry her. They managed to cancel her marriage because Pounrasu wanted to marry Nagamani. Aandal eventually promises Pounrasu to put together Nagamani and him. Meantime, his uncle kills Aandal.

The rest of the story is about what happens to Pounrasu and Nagamani.



The film was initially titled as Eera Kaathu, before the film had a change of name. Devayani's refusal to be a part of the project meant that Ravali was signed.[3]
