Ullasa Paravaigal (lit. 'Carefree birds') is a 1980 Tamil-language Indian romantic film directed by C. V. Rajendran, starring Kamal Haasan in the lead role. The movie has evergreen songs that are murmured even today. The movie was a hit at the box office. This film has been dubbed into Hindi as Do Dil Deewane. Later in 1981, C. V. Rajendran remade the film in Telugu-language as Prema Pichchi, It was a partial remake of Ullasa Paravaigal. A few scenes were remade in Telugu with Telugu actors like Mohan Babu and the rest of the movie was dubbed.
Ravi is in denial about his mental health as a result of the death of his rural love interest (Ravi develops a fear to fire as his lover dies by house-burning plotted by a man). His father and friend Raju played by Suruli Rajan hatch a plan to take him overseas to get him treatment for his illness. He meets his childhood friend Nirmala (played by Rati Agnihotri). With the help of Nirmala and Raju, Ravi gets better.
The second half of the film deals with how Ravi's uncle tries to kill him to get his hands on his fortune and how Ravi overcomes his uncle. The film is famous for its songs, some of which are considered Ilaiyaraaja's masterpieces, including "Deiveega Raagam", "Azhagu Aayiram" and "Germaniyin Senthen Malare".

Tribune commented,"Even the [Kamal Haasan] magic could not sustain this ambitiously produced film, directed by C. V. Rajendran for long as the story slipped more into a travelogue that circled the high, the bright and the night spots of Paris with its suburbs."
