Chinna Thambi Periya Thambi is a 1987 Tamil-language film directed by Manivannan starring Nadia Moidu, Nizhalgal Ravi, and Prabhu in the lead roles. The film is a family drama with a mix of romance and comedy elements, making it appealing to a wide range of audiences. The film's premise follows two brothers, Chinna Thambi (Prabhu) and Periya Thambi (Nizhalgal Ravi), who are polar opposites in their personalities. While Chinna Thambi is a fun-loving prankster who enjoys playing practical jokes, Periya Thambi is a serious and responsible man who takes care of his family's business. Despite their differences, the two brothers share a deep bond and are very protective of each other.

The story takes an interesting turn when a young woman named Radha (Nadia Moidu) comes into their lives. Radha is a city girl who comes to their village to teach at a local school. Chinna Thambi falls in love with Radha at first sight, but she does not reciprocate his feelings. Instead, she develops a close friendship with Periya Thambi. Chinna Thambi becomes jealous of their relationship and tries to win Radha's heart by disguising himself as a wealthy businessman.

However, Radha sees through his disguise and realizes that Chinna Thambi is pretending to be someone he's not. Eventually, she falls in love with him for who he is, and they both confess their feelings to each other. Meanwhile, Periya Thambi also falls in love with Radha's friend, Nandini (Sulakshana), and they get engaged.

The movie takes a dramatic turn when both Chinna and Periya Thambi come to know that their father (Janagaraj) has been wrongly imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. They have to work together to prove his innocence and bring the real culprits to justice.

The movie has several entertaining and engaging moments, including a hilarious sequence where Chinna Thambi teaches Periya Thambi how to dance, and an emotional scene where the two brothers reconcile after a heated argument.

The film's music, composed by Ilaiyaraaja, is a highlight, with several memorable songs that still resonate with Tamil audiences today. The iconic track "Valaiyosai Kala Kalavena" is particularly notable for its catchy tune and emotional lyrics.

Overall, Chinna Thambi Periya Thambi is a wholesome and entertaining family drama that has stood the test of time. The movie's memorable characters, engaging storyline, and entertaining music make it a must-watch for Tamil movie fans.
