Nalanum Nandhiniyum (English: Nalan and Nadhini) is a 2014 Tamil romance film written and directed by Venkatesan R., a former associate director of Venkat Prabhu, here making his debut as solo director. Having ventured under Ravindar Chandrasekaran’s production house, The Libra Productions, the film features Michael Thangadurai and Nandita in lead roles.
Duraipandi and Arunachalam have a worsening feud, but Nalan, the son of Duraipandi's sister, and Nandhini, Arunachalam's daughter, have known each other from childhood, love each other, get married, and move to Chennai. They hope to heal the feud, but struggle to make it in the big city; Nalan is irresponsible, but Nandhini finds work as a teacher.

The reviewer for the Deccan Chronicle judged the film "undercooked", failing to balance the intensity—such as the two warring old men, whose performances he judged the best part of it—with the "charming innocence of the romance". The reviewer for the Times of India found the plot trite and the film "content to coast on feel good moments and melodrama bordering on implausibility".
