Maayi is a 2000 Indian Tamil-language drama film directed by Surya Prakash. The film stars Sarath Kumar, Meena, and Suvalakshmi in the lead roles. The movie was produced by Radha Ravi under his banner Raadan Films International. The story revolves around the life of a middle-aged man named Maayandi, played by Sarath Kumar. He is a kind-hearted person who is always ready to help others. Maayandi lives with his wife and children in a village. His life takes a turn when he goes to the city to help his friend, who is a doctor, in need of urgent medical assistance. On his way back to the village, he encounters a group of goons who are trying to abduct a girl, played by Suvalakshmi. He rescues the girl and takes her to her mother, who is none other than his childhood sweetheart, played by Meena.

As the story progresses, Maayandi learns about the struggles faced by his childhood sweetheart and her family. He decides to help them and goes to great lengths to ensure their safety and well-being. The movie also tackles various social issues such as rape, harassment, and the plight of widows.

One of the highlights of the movie is the chemistry between Sarath Kumar and Meena. Their on-screen pairing is a treat to watch, and they both deliver powerful performances. Sarath Kumar, in particular, excels in his role as the protective and caring Maayandi. The way he handles the situations in the movie and the way he stands up for what is right is commendable. Meena, too, does justice to her role as the vulnerable and helpless widow.

Suvalakshmi, who plays the girl that Maayandi rescues, also does well in her limited screen time. Her character serves as a catalyst for Maayandi to take action and fight back against injustice. The supporting cast, including Pandiarajan, Vadivelu, and Riyaz Khan, also deliver strong performances.

The music of the movie, composed by Deva, is another highlight. The songs are catchy and add to the emotional quotient of the movie. The background score is also well done and elevates the intensity of the scenes.

Overall, Maayi is a movie that deals with important social issues and delivers a powerful message. The movie is a must-watch for fans of Sarath Kumar and Meena and anyone who enjoys movies that are both entertaining and thought-provoking.
