Pattabhiraman. The story of Idhaya Malar revolves around Kamal Haasan's character, a young and talented musician named Ramu. Ramu is deeply in love with Sujatha's character, Malini, who is also passionate about music. However, Malini's father, played by Gemini Ganesan, is a wealthy businessman who disapproves of the relationship and wants his daughter to marry someone from his own social circle.

Despite Malini's protestations, her father arranges a marriage for her, and she eventually agrees to marry a wealthy groom. However, Malini's marriage is cut short when her husband dies in a tragic accident on their wedding day. Devastated by the loss of her husband, Malini decides to give up music and live a life of seclusion.

Meanwhile, Ramu becomes a successful musician and is constantly reminded of his love for Malini. He decides to try and win her back, and through his music, he manages to break down the walls Malini has put up around herself. However, their happiness is short-lived when Malini's father finds out about their relationship and forbids them from seeing each other.

Determined to be together, Ramu and Malini run away, but their escape is short-lived when Malini falls seriously ill. As her condition deteriorates, Ramu realizes that he may lose her forever and must make a difficult choice to save her life.

The performances in Idhaya Malar are outstanding, with Kamal Haasan delivering a nuanced portrayal of a young musician deeply in love.
