Maragatha Veenai (transl. Emerald Veena) is a 1986 Tamil-language Indian feature film directed by Gokula Krishnan, starring Suresh and Revathy in lead roles.[1]


Kokila (Revathi) is abandoned as a child and taken in by Carnatic musician (J. V. Somayajulu) who is impressed with her natural singing skills. He and his wife (Vadivukkarasi) raise her as their own. When her father falls ill, Kokila becomes the sole earner in her family and is forced to go to work. Kokila starts as the new music teacher at a school in a small village. Kannan (Suresh) is the drill master at the same school and is rude to Kokila from their first meeting. Their relationship deteriorates until an injury causes Kannan to repent and apologize for his behavior. The two soon fall in love and Kannan's mother approves of their marriage. Kokila is called back home suddenly and told that her parents have arranged her marriage with Dr. Chandrasekar (Vagai Chandrasekhar), the man that saved her father's life. Unable to say no to the people that took her in, she agrees to marry him and breaks things off with Kannan. Things come to a head when Kannan is forced into a marriage by his family and Chandrasekar learns the truth.
