Ullasa Paravaigal (transl. Joyful birds) is a 1980 Indian Tamil-language romantic drama film directed by C. V. Rajendran, starring Kamal Haasan.[1] 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 and released on 21 February 1981.[2] 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 hatch a plan to take him overseas to get him treatment for his illness. He meets his childhood friend Nirmala. 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.



Ullasa Paravaigal was shot extensively in Europe and the United States.[4][5]

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."[7]
