Solla Marandha Kadhai (English: The Forgotten Story) is a 2002 Tamil 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, and also because it would be more realistic casting an actor with no image for the role, rather than a known face. 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]

Critical reception[edit]

Hindu wrote:"Thankar Bachan's story telling skill stirred you in "Azhagi" but somehow the magic is missing this time".[2]
