Sathi Murali was a 1940 Tamil-language film directed by Vadivelu Naicker. It starred M. K. Radha, M. R. Santhanalakshmi and T. R. Mahalingam in the lead roles.


During the late 1930s and the 1940s, there were a lot of movies with social messages such as Thyagabhoomi. Sathi Murali targeted caste-based discrimination in society. Sathi Murali was the second film for singer and actor T. R. Mahalingam who later became one of the leading stars of Tamil cinema.


The movie was based on the story of a low-caste boy named Seenu who falls in love with a high-caste woman named Murali. After facing a lot of hardships, their love finally succeeds.
