Solla Marandha Kadhai (transl. The story that was forgotten to be told) is a 2002 Tamil-language film. This film is based on writer Nanjil Nadan's novel Thalaikeezh vigithangal.



After the critically acclaimed Azhagi, Thangar Bachan announced his next project "Solla Marantha Kadhai". The director chose Cheran because he fitted the bill, says Thangar Bachan, "I had also watched Cheran direct his artistes in 'Pandvar Bhoomi' for which i was the cinematographer. I was amazed at the expressions he brought to his face, and when i was casting for my film, his was the first name that came to my mind". The film marked the debut of folk-singer Pushpavanam Kuppusamy as actor. An 80-day shooting schedule was held at locations in Panruti, Cuddalore, Vadalur and Chidambaram.[1]


All lyrics are written by Ilaiyaraaja; all music is composed by Ilaiyaraaja.

Critical reception[edit]

The Hindu wrote:"Thankar Bachan's story telling skill stirred you in "Azhagi" but somehow the magic is missing this time".[3] Sify wrote "After that fairy tale Azhagi, Thankar Bachchan's second attempt to produce another whiff of romance with Solla Marantha Kathai has turned sour. The film is a mushy sentimental hogwash that reminds you of the tearjerkers of 50's and 60's."[4]
