Subash is a 1996 Tamil action film directed by R. V. Udayakumar. The film features Arjun and Revathi in lead roles. The film, produced by K. S. Srinivasan and K. S. Sivaraman, had musical score by Vidyasagar and was released on 20 September 1996. The film was an average grosser at the box office.[1][2]


Subash (Arjun), a good-for-nothing youth, enjoys his life as much as possible. His brother, Rajasekhar (Siddique), is a minister and his father (Jaishankar) is a court judge. Subash falls in love with Savitri (Revathi), a middle class Brahmin girl. Savitri loves him but she wants to marry with a intrepid man so Subash joins the army and becomes a military officer.

Upon his return, his family reveals that Savitri and her father died in an accident. Arumugasamy (Prakash Raj), an honest politician, thought being Rajasekhar's opposite party is Rajasekhar's best friend, dies mysteriously.

Subash suspects Thangamani (Manivannan), Arumugasamy's right hand, for Arumugasamy's death. Later, he finds Savitri in Thangamani's house and saves her. Savitri discloses that Rajasekhar is a corrupted politician and is linked to the terrorists. Rajasekhar's henchmen killed Arumugasamy and Thangamani began to sequester her.

Subash swears to punish his brother and saves his country.



The film was initially titled August 15th and was engaged in a long battle during production with another film to secure the title, but eventually had to settle for Subash. Furthermore, during the making of the film, Karthik Raja was dropped and replaced by Vidyasagar.[3]
