Vanaja Girija is a 1994 Tamil-language comedy film directed by Keyaar. The film stars Ramki, Napoleon, Khushbu, and Mohini. It was released on 16 December 1994. The film is a remake of Engamma Sapatham (1974) written by the same writer and it was remade in Telugu as Mama Bagunnava (1997) with Mohini reprising her role.
The veterinarian Anand and the doctor Raja are brothers. Their father Ramanathan is a rich retired businessman. Vanaja and Girija live with their mother Lakshmi. Their father Shankar has left them when they were young because of Ramanathan. Vanaja and Girija decide to take revenge on Ramanathan by charming his sons.
The main female lead cast was offered initially to Meena and Roja, but both only wanted the role of the younger sister. Khushbu was signed to play the elder sister and Meena the younger sister. But Meena did not want to be cast opposite Ramki, as she only paired with top leading actors. Mohini was signed for the younger sister role. She was recommended by Keyaar, who had introduced her to the film industry.

K. Vijiyan of New Straits Times gave a positive review that the film reminded him of Magalir Mattum and that the director "has managed to exploit most of the scenes in the movie for maximum comic relief".
