Ullam Kollai Poguthae is a 2001 Indian Tamil romantic drama film directed by Sundar C. This film stars Prabhu Deva and Anjala Zaveri in the lead roles, while Karthik, Deepa Venkat, and Vivek play supporting roles. The film opened to mixed reviews.
Anbu (Prabhu Deva) is a small time mimicry artist living with his only sister Bharathi (Deepa Venkat). Anbu falls in love with Bharathi’s close friend Jyothi (Anjala Zaveri), who hails from a rich family. Jyothi visits Bharathi’s home frequently, but Anbu does not have the courage to propose to Jyothi. When Anbu makes up his mind to propose to Jyothi, suddenly there comes Gautham (Karthik) from the US, who happens to be Jyothi’s family friend. Anbu understands that Gautham and Jyothi are in a relationship and that their families plan for their wedding. A heartbroken Anbu decides to keep his love within himself.
One day, when Gautham and Jyothi are out for shopping, they meet with an accident where Gautham passes away and Jyothi loses her vision. As per the doctor’s advice, Jyothi’s parents decide to hide the truth about Gautham’s death to Jyothi as that would put her into mental trauma. When Jyothi asks for Gautham, suddenly Anbu steps in and speaks in Gautham’s voice to make her believe that Gautham is fine after the accident. Jyothi undergoes treatment, and a surgery is planned after a few weeks, following which she could get back her vision.
In the meantime, Anbu acts as Gautham to Jyothi until she gets her vision back. Anbu gets an offer to perform mimicry in a show in Australia, but he turns it down as he wishes to be with Jyothi. At the same time, Anbu feels guilty that he has missed an opportunity to perform in the Australian show, which could have helped him earn some money for Bharathi’s wedding plans. Jyothi undergoes surgery and gets back her vision and she asks for Gautham. However, her parents convince her, saying that Gautham has gone to the US for some urgent work.
Anbu, unable to bear his love failure as well as his inability to earn money for Bharathi’s wedding, decides to commit suicide as Bharathi would receive some relief fund from mimicry association which could be used for her wedding. Anbu writes a letter and leaves his home with poison. Bharathi finds out about Anbu’s decision and searches him. Meanwhile, Jyothi watches her friend’s wedding video which she attended when she was blind along with Anbu and understands that it was Anbu who was in place of Gautham. Jyothi cries upon knowing about the fate of Gautham. Bharathi comes to Jyothi’s house in search of Anbu and informs her about Anbu’s love and his sacrifice. Anbu goes to a stage show to meet his friends before committing suicide. Jyothi and Bharathi also reach the show where Jyothi speaks on stage thanking Anbu, hoping that he might see it from somewhere. Jyothi also proposes to marry Anbu. Anbu hears this and feels happy. Finally Anbu and Jyothi are married.
