Galatta Kalyanam is a classic Tamil language film that was released in the year 1968. This romantic comedy movie was directed and produced by C. V. Sridhar, who was considered one of the best filmmakers of the time. The star cast of the movie included renowned actors like Shivaji Ganesan, Aachi Manorama, and Sundari Bai. The movie revolves around the story of an affluent businessman, Natesan (played by Shivaji Ganesan), who is the owner of a textile mill. He is a strict disciplinarian and has a reputation of being ruthless in business. His only weakness is his mother, whom he adores and dotes upon. One day, he meets a beautiful and vivacious young girl, Radha (played by Kanchana), who is a circus artist. Natesan is smitten by Radha's charm and falls in love with her. However, Radha is not interested in him and brushes off his advances.

In the meantime, Natesan's mother has fixed his marriage with a girl of her choice. Natesan is torn between his love for Radha and his duty towards his mother. He finally decides to go ahead with the marriage but on the day of the wedding, Radha crashes the ceremony and creates chaos. In a fit of anger, Natesan marries Radha instead of the bride chosen by his mother.

After their marriage, Natesan realizes that he has made a huge mistake as he struggles to adjust to Radha's carefree ways. He tries to change her and make her more disciplined but fails. On the other hand, Radha finds it difficult to cope up with the strict and regimented life of her husband. The couple keeps fighting and arguing, and their relationship becomes strained.

One day, Natesan's mother falls ill, and he rushes to her side, leaving Radha behind. During his absence, Radha learns the hard way about the responsibilities of being a wife and a daughter-in-law. She struggles to cope up with the demands of the family and ends up winning their hearts with her kindness and sincerity. When Natesan returns, he is surprised to see the transformation in Radha and realizes that he had misjudged her. He falls in love with her all over again, and they live happily ever after.

The movie is a perfect blend of romance and comedy. The lead actors - Shivaji Ganesan and Kanchana - have delivered brilliant performances and have brought alive the characters of Natesan and Radha. Aachi Manorama, who plays Natesan's mother, has also done an excellent job and has added some humor to the movie. The music of the movie, composed by Viswanathan-Ramamoorthy, is melodious and catchy.

Overall, Galatta Kalyanam is a must-watch movie for anyone who loves romantic comedies. The story is engaging, the performances are impeccable, and the music is soothing.
