Monisha En Monalisa (English: Monisha is my Monalisa) is a Tamil film released in 1999 written, directed and produced by T. Rajendar who also composed the music and portrays a supporting role. His son, Silambarasan starred in a cameo role in the film, whilst debutants, Ramanakanth and Mumtaj played the lead roles.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

The song Tholaipesi Enna was shot at a grand budget of 10 million rupees but the film had troubles when a flood that hit Chennai washed away a set erected on the banks of the Cooum. During the production of the film, the film was renamed from Monisha to Monisha En Monalisa due to astrological reasons.[2]

Soundtrack[edit]

Soundtrack was written and composed by T. Rajender. The title song of the film is based on "María" by Ricky Martin.[3]
