Manathil Uruthi Vendum (English: Need Brave Heart) is a 1987 Indian Tamil language Drama film directed by K. Balachander starring Suhasini, S. P. Balasubrahmanyam, Ramesh Aravind, Sridhar, Vivek, Lalitha Kumari and Yamuna.

Rajinikanth, Sathyaraj, and Vijayakanth make guest appearances.[1]


This is the story of Nandini, a nurse, played by Suhasini. She is the sole bread winner of her huge family including six siblings and unemployed parents, and she faces many hurdles in her life including a divorce, loss of a brother, an eloped sister, a failed second romance and an organ donation. She handles them with dignity and wins the hearts of one and all including her suspicious ex-husband when she donates him her kidney. S. P. Balasubrahmanyam plays the role of a dedicated Doctor, who inspires Nandini to take the ultimate decision in life to continue serving her patients.



While assisting with the script for the film in 1987, Balachandar offered Vivek an acting role of Suhasini's brother in the film, which he decided to pursue thus made his acting debut in the film.[2] Recalling his experience: "I remember the first day of my shooting [..] I was asked to come running down the stairs. I did the shot to his satisfaction. But in doing so I hurt my toes. But I did not want to show it to him. But after a few minutes the blood was oozing from the wound. KB sir saw it and asked me immediately to attend to it".[3]
