En Purushan Kuzhandhai Maadiri
Cast: Livingston, Devayani, Vindhya, Vadivelu, Ponnambalam, R. Sunderrajan, Mayilsamy.
The plot did have the potential to make it an engaging entertainer. But the problem is that the director couldn’t really decide as to what type of treatment he should give his plot. Whether it should be in the genre of a comedy or a melodrama, of a family sentiment or of a saga of a family feud. So he makes a hotchpotch of the whole thing, and it does not help matters.
Murugesan (Livingston) has an on going feud with Shantha Murthy (Ponnambalam) the illegitimate off-spring of his father. Murugesan loves his city-educated cousin Maheshwari (Devayani), who reciprocates his love. But Murugesan commits an indiscretion in an inebriated condition. He seduces dancer Chintamani (Vindhya) whom he had given refuge to in his farmhouse, when she was being harassed by Shanta Murthy. Murugesan confesses the whole matter to Maheshwari on his wedding night. A furious Maheshwari refuses to have anything to do with him. Shantha Murthy manipulates the situation to his advantage. A few reels later Maheshwari realises the goodness of her husband, and forgives him. When matters are going just right for Murugesan, and Maheshwari conceives, he finds to his dismay that Chintamani too is pregnant with his child. Maheshwari withdraws from him again. How the matter is resolved and how he patches up forms the rest of the story. There is not much by way of performance here, though Vindhya does manage to get some sympathy as the other woman.
