Kadhal Kottai is a 1996 Tamil romantic drama film directed by Agathiyan. The film stars Ajith Kumar , Devayani, and Heera Rajgopal in the lead roles. The movie tells the story of two people who fall in love without meeting each other, the challenges they face to unite with each other and how they finally succeed in their love story.

The film begins with Kamali (Devayani) receiving a letter from a man named Gautham (Ajith Kumar) who lives in a small village in Tamil Nadu. Gautham saw Kamali's photo on a wedding invitation card and fell in love with her just by looking at it. He writes a letter to her expressing his love and sends it to her through a friend. Kamali, who lives in Bangalore, receives the letter and is initially shocked, but eventually gets curious and writes a letter back. Gautham receives the letter and they eventually start exchanging letters, which creates a bond between them.

They continue to write to each other for several months and their love for each other grows stronger day by day. They both decide to meet in person, but due to circumstances, they can never seem to meet. Despite their best efforts to meet each other, they are unable to. Meanwhile, Kamali's father plans her marriage to a businessman named Arjun (played by Charle). Kamali's struggle to express her love towards Gautham while also trying to avoid marriage with Arjun takes the movie to interesting twists and turns.

As the story progresses, the movie reveals the hardships faced by Gautham in his village - such as economic struggles and family problems. Kamali's struggles, too, are shown impressively - she will have to navigate through the expectations of her father who disagrees with woman's identity and falls back to the society’s dated beliefs often. All of these events bring both of them closer, yet painfully distant.

The film's music and songs (composed by Deva) also add to the movie's romantic atmosphere, including the iconic 'Ennai Thalattum Sangeetham' track, which has became extremely popular during the time of the movie release, and remains a fan favorite even today.

Overall, Kadhal Kottai is a sweet, emotional, and well-made romantic love story that is still remembered fondly by movie buffs. The film also marked a turning point in the career of Ajith Kumar, who went on to become one of the most popular actors in Tamil cinema. With its unique premise, strong performances by its lead cast, and enduring music - this movie will surely tug at your heartstrings.
