Vaalmiki is a 2009 Indian Tamil-language film directed by G. Anantha Narayanan, starring Akhil, Meera Nandan and Devika.[1]


Vaalmiki is the story of a petty thief, popularly known as Pickpocket Pandi. He does all the petty crimes for a living and he never regrets to steal, snatch and even rob. He is happy on his life leading a fairly happy-go-lucky lifestyle in the company of his friends. His antics always land him in prison. One day he meets a girl, Vandana, a well behaved, sweet-tempered girl. They find themselves attracted to each other even though they have a very little in common. A flower-seller Kanaka, forms the third angle. Whether Vandana reforms Pandi form the climax.
