Oru Naal Oru Kanavu (Tamil: ஒரு நாள் ஒரு கனவு, English: One day, one dream) is a 2005 Indian Tamil-language romantic drama film directed by Fazil.[1] Srikanth and Sonia Agarwal play the lead roles, music was by Ilaiyaraaja and it was shot by Anandakuttan.[2] The film released on 26 August 2005 to average reviews.[3][4]


The story revolves around Maya (Sonia Agarwal), a college student, who always wants to triumph in all her endeavors. She comes across a middle class youth, Cheenu (Srikanth), a happy-go-lucky-youngster, who strives to work hard to get his sisters married well.

A few encounters (Maya and Cheenu) result in wordy duels between them leading to Maya challenging Cheenu that she will make him fall in love with her. Her further course of action to achieve her challenge leaves Cheenu frustrated and he decides to take revenge on her by pretending to fall in love with her.

Maya, who starts to spend more time with Cheenu comes to know of his kind heart and his good nature and eventually develops an honest love towards him. She even helps him in setting his own business house. Slowly Cheenu too comes to know of Maya's nobleness and generosity and falls in love with her.

Trouble comes in the form of her brothers who threaten Cheenu of dire consequences. Cheenu resolves to earn more and become rich and then hold the hands of Maya. But Maya has plans otherwise. Whether the couple ends up getting married forms the rest of the story.



The soundtrack was done by Ilaiyaraaja. The song "Kaatril Varum Geethame" was penned by Vali and was considered an instant hit by music lovers.[5]
