Natpukaaga (Tamil: நட்புக்காக English: For Friendship) is a 1998 Tamil language film directed by K. S. Ravikumar. It starred Sarath Kumar and Simran Bagga in the lead roles. It became a success upon release.

It was remade into Telugu as Sneham Kosam which starred Chiranjeevi with K. S. Ravikumar directing the version. Later remade in Kannada as Diggajaru (2000).


Chinnaiya (Sarath Kumar) is a faithful servant in the house of a rich man (Vijayakumar). There is no love lost between the rich man and his elder daughter (Sitara). His second daughter, Prabhavathy (Simran Bagga), who arrives from a foreign land, falls in love with Chinnaiya but after gaining his trust, accuses him of attempting to rape her. Turns out that she did this to try to unite her sister's family with her father and send Chinnaiya out since it was Chinnaiya's father who killed her mother. So Chinnaiya is kicked out of the house. Meanwhile Muthaiya (also Sarath Kumar), Chinnaiya's father, is released from jail.



The film was a blockbuster at the box office.
