Vanna Thamizh Paatu (English: Colourful Tamil song) is a 2000 Tamil romantic drama film directed by P. Vasu. The film features Prabhu, débutantes [Vaijayanthi] and Mani Chandhana in lead roles. The film, produced by M. Krishnaswamy, had musical score by S. A. Rajkumar and was released on 17 November 2000. The film received mixed reviews.
Bhuvana (Vaijayanthi) is back to her village after dropping out of college. Her father Muthumanikkam (Radha Ravi), the village's Zamindar, is amazed when he listened to the song of Bhoopathy (Prabhu) and he hires Bhoopathy as a servant and singer in his house.
Muthumanikkam and his brother-in-law Rasappan (Anandaraj) are against love marriages. Thereafter, Devi (Mani Chandhana), Bhuvana's sister, falls in love with Bhoopathy but Boopathy does not reciprocate it. Soon, Bhuvana's mother finds out about the marriage between Bhoopathy and her daughter Bhuvana.
A flashback is shown where Bhoopathy and Bhuvana fell in love with each other and were secretly married. Vijaya Raghunatha Bhoopathy Raja is, in fact, the son of the Zamindar Rathnavel Raghunatha Bhoopathy Raja (Prabhu). Rathnavel Raghunatha Bhoopathy Raja ordered them to first sought the blessings of Muthumanikkam and then he will bless them. Hence to win the heart of Muthumanikkam, Boopathy came as a servant to his home. Bhuvana's mother keeps the secret within her and does not inform Muthumanikkam.
Afterwards, Muthumanikkam finds out that Devi is in love with Boopathy and decides to send Boopathy out from his home. But Rasappan comes to rescue and informs the truth about Boopathy and Bhuvana. A small flashback is shown where Rasappan finds the real identity of Boopathy. Muthumanikkam understands the true love between Boopathy and Bhuvana and decides to agree to their wedding. Finally, Boopathy and Bhuvana are united with the blessings of both families.

Cinema Today wrote "The story selected by P.Vasu is a well worn-out one. Hence monotony. The songs introduced as an element of difference have turned him upside down. prabhu and Vadivelu have emerged as his saviors." Lollu Express called it "Irritating and old story".
