Ulle Veliye (English: Inside Outside) is a 1993 Tamil crime film directed by Parthiban. The film features Parthiban, Aishwarya and Shenbagam in lead roles. The film, produced by Seetha, had musical score by Ilaiyaraaja and was released on 16 April 1993. The film proved to be a successful venture at the box office in spite of its vulgar scenes and double-entendres.[1][2][3][4] The film was remade in Hindi as Mr. Azaad (1994).


Gajendran (Parthiban) is a small-time crook who lives in a slum. In the past, his father was a laborer and a communist activist. His superior killed his father and his innocent mother Rajalakshmi (Sabitha Anand) was sent to jail for the murder of her husband. Gajendran was then born in jail.

Thereafter, Gajendran falls in love with the police officer Meena (Aishwarya). Later, MLA Muthulingam (Rajeev) burns his slum to collect some votes. Gajendran, to fight the unfairness against the poor, takes the IPS exam and passes it. He becomes a police officer but he then takes bribes from everyone even the poor. One day, anti-corruption officers raid Gajendran's house and find there a lot of money. At the court, Shenbagam (Shenbagam), who is deeply in love with Gajendran, decides to save him so she lies to the judge that she was a prostitute and had earned a lot of money. Shenbagam then commits suicide. Gajendran marries Meena and he finally decides to fight against the corruption.

The Indian Express wrote "Parthiban gives a good account of himself and as a director and story writer too he has excelled but as a dialogue writer he has gone overboard with the double entendres and conceived situations which are obscene".[7]
