Uyirile Kalanthathu is a Tamil-language romantic drama released in 2000. Directed by Jeeva, the film stars Jyotika, Raghuvaran, and Suriya in lead roles. The film deals with the theme of love, relationships, and the struggles faced by lovers due to societal norms and family expectations. The film's story revolves around Bhavani (Jyotika), a college student, who falls in love with Chandru (Suriya), a fun-loving guy who doesn't take life seriously. Despite his carefree attitude, Bhavani falls head over heels in love with Chandru and tries everything to win his heart. However, Chandru is not interested in her and continues to flirt with other girls.

Meanwhile, Bhavani's father (Raghuvaran) is a strict disciplinarian and holds conservative views about love and relationships. He doesn't approve of his daughter's love affair and tries to put an end to it. He arranges a wedding for Bhavani with a wealthy businessman's son, but she refuses to accept the proposal.

Bhavani's father then resorts to emotional blackmail and tries to convince her that her mother's life is at stake if she doesn't agree to the marriage proposal. Bhavani, who loves her mother dearly, is torn between her love for Chandru and her concern for her mother's health.

To make matters worse, Chandru gets into trouble with a local goon, and Bhavani's father offers to help him in exchange for Chandru's promise to leave Bhavani alone. However, Chandru breaks his promise and elopes with Bhavani, leaving her father furious and heartbroken.

The rest of the film follows the couple's journey as they face numerous challenges and obstacles in their quest to be together. From dealing with the wrath of Bhavani's father to facing financial difficulties, the couple undergoes several trials and tribulations.

The film's direction, screenplay, and music are top-notch, with AR Rahman composing soulful and melodious tracks that tug at the heartstrings. Jyotika's portrayal of Bhavani is realistic and emotional, making it easy for the audience to empathize with her character's plight. Suriya, in his early days as an actor, puts up an impressive performance as Chandru and showcases his acting skills.

Raghuvaran's character as Bhavani's strict and overbearing father is well etched, and his portrayal of a conservative patriarch who wants only the best for his family, despite his harsh methods, is commendable. The supporting cast, including Manivannan, Livingston, and Delhi Ganesh, add to the film's charm with their memorable performances.

In conclusion, Uyirile Kalanthathu is an engaging and heartwarming love story that will leave a lasting impression on its viewers. The film's portrayal of the complexities of relationships and the struggles faced by lovers in a society that is not always tolerant of unconventional love stories make it a must-watch for all romance lovers.
