Pudhu Manithan (English: New human) is a 1991 Tamil drama film, directed by Manivannan. The film featured Sathyaraj as the protagonist, while Bhanupriya played his love interest and Sarath Kumar as the antagonist. The film's musical score was by Deva and was released on 22 March 1991.[1][2][3]


Kabali (Sathyaraj), an orphan, lives in a slum with an old Brahmin woman named Pangajam (Manorama), and he considers her like his mother. Kabali is a fisherman and also the slum's rowdy, but he has a heart of gold. He went to jail many times only because he fought against injustice.

Suganthi (Bhanupriya), a chorus singer who is also an orphan, often returns home late. For her safety, she uses Kabali's name to avoid the rowdies and lies that she is his girlfriend. One day, Kabali meets her and slaps her for misusing his name. Thereafter, he falls in love with her.

Sundar (R. Sarathkumar) is a rich man and womanizer. He is able to have any girls he wants by money or force. His mother (Sathyapriya) sympathizes with Suganthi and decides to get her married to Sundar.

When Kabali decides to propose his love to Suganthi, she first tells him that she has accepted to get married to Sundar, and she invites him for the wedding. Kabali is then heartbroken as he knows about Sundar's bad habits, but he decides to hide the truth because he does not want to hurt her feelings.

At the wedding day, however, Sundar stops the marriage because he thinks that Suganthi has an illicit affair with Kabali. Kabali tells him that he is wrong and challenges him to arrange their marriage another day. What transpires later forms the crux of the story.
