Unna Nenachen Pattu Padichen is a 1992 Tamil-language drama film directed by Guru Dhanapal. The film stars Karthik, Sasikala and Monisha. The film, produced by G. D. Ramesh, had musical score by Ilaiyaraaja and was released on 12 April 1992. The song in the film "Ennai Thottu Alli Konda" has a cult following in the rural south of India and is often played repeatedly during festivals even now.[1][2][3]


Muthurasu (Karthik) and Periyasamy (Nizhalgal Ravi) are brothers, and live with their father (Vinu Chakravarthy) and their grandmother (Kanthimathi). Meenakshi (Sasikala), Muthurasu's cousin, will marry another man (Anandaraj) but she must marry Muthurasu or Periyasamy as per the customs. The brothers then decide to kidnap Meenakshi. In the process, Periyasamy dies.

The two villages then clash and arrange a panchayat to solve the problem. During the panchayat, Meenakshi says that she will stay in her uncle's house because Meenakshi hates the groom. Muthurasu's father decides to arrange the marriage between Muthurasu and Meenakshi but Muthurasu cannot forget his lover Dhanam (Monisha) who died a few years ago. What transpires later forms the crux of the story.
