Naane Raja Naane Mandhiri (Tamil: நானே ராஜா நானே மந்திரி; English: I am the king and the minister) is a 1985 Tamil romantic comedy drama film, directed by Balu Anand and produced by Thooyavan. The film stars Vijayakanth, Raadhika, Jeevitha and Goundamani in lead roles. The film had a critically acclaimed musical score by Ilaiyaraaja.[1] The film was a hit at box office and was remade in Telugu as Nene Raja Nene Mantri (1987) with Mohan Babu.


A self centred egoistic village zamindar Rangamani who makes fun of people, is rude by nature and brash tries to accommodate a teacher who comes to his village in search of work. How she gets to understand him, how he reacts and how his uncle's daughter who initially adversely reacts to his tantrums reacts towards the end is the story.



Balu Anand, who worked as an assistant to R. Sundarrajan made his directorial debut with this film.[2]


The music was composed by Ilaiyaraaja and proved to be critically acclaimed.[3]
