Onbadhu Roobai Nottu is a 2007 Tamil drama film directed by Thangar Bachan, starring Sathyaraj, Archana, and Nassar in the lead roles. The movie revolves around the life of a poor man named Velu who inherits a huge sum of money from his long-lost father. The story begins with Velu (Sathyaraj), who resides in a small village. He is a hardworking man and does odd jobs to support his wife and children. Despite his struggles, he is happy in life and doesn't complain much. One day, Velu receives a letter from a lawyer announcing that his father has died, and he is the sole heir to his property, which amounts to ten crores.

Velu is shocked to hear this news as he never knew he had a father or a wealthy family background. He then embarks on a journey to Chennai to claim his inheritance. Upon reaching there, he experiences the luxuries of his newfound wealth and is fascinated by it. However, things take a drastic turn when Velu realizes that his father's death was not natural, and he suspects foul play.

The rest of the movie deals with Velu's quest to find the truth behind his father's death, the challenges he faces, and the moral dilemmas he encounters. The movie does an excellent job portraying the consequences of inherited wealth and how it can impact a person's life.

The performances by the lead actors are exceptional, especially Sathyaraj's portrayal of Velu. His transformation from a simple, contented man to a wealthy, confused individual is noteworthy. Archana, who plays Velu's wife, and Nassar, who portrays the lawyer, have also done an excellent job.

The direction and cinematography of the movie are impressive. Thangar Bachan's screenplay is well-crafted and keeps the audience engaged throughout the film. The background score and music by Ilaiyaraaja is soulful, and the songs complement the story well.

The movie also touches upon important social issues such as class divide, corruption, and the moral ambiguity that comes with wealth. The film challenges the viewer's perception of money and whether it can bring true happiness.

Overall, Onbadhu Roobai Nottu is an emotional drama with a compelling narrative that keeps viewers invested till the end. It is a classic example of Tamil cinema's ability to capture the human experience and reflect it back onto the audience.
