Azhagaana Ponnuthan is a 2010 Indian Tamil-language romance film written and directed by Thiru that stars Namitha and newcomer Kartheesh in lead roles, with R. Parthiban playing an older version of Karthick's role. The film is an unofficial remake of the Italian film Malena .The film's score and soundtrack composed by Sundar C Babu. The film, produced by K. Keshavan, was released on 12 March 2010.[1]



Parthiban appears in the very first reel recollecting his travels with a woman whom he had developed an affinity in his teens.

A flashback takes one to Kodaikanal where Karthik (Karteesh) falls instantly for a gorgeous woman called Jennifer (Namitha), who is older to him. She is admired and respected by everyone, especially men.

It is all but Karthik's wild imagination is the rest. Karthik sings duets with Jennifer and runs behind her. However, in the latter half, he goes into a shell brooding over his love and beloved. Twists and turns reveal that Jennifer’s husband has died in the Indo-Pak war of 1971. What happens then forms the climax.


The film was launched in 2006 and was finished in 2009 due to delay.[2] Newcomer Rajkarthik was selected to play the lead role while R. Parthiban was selected to play his elder version.[3]

Post-release, Thiru, director of the film claimed that his film was a damp squib due to Namitha. Thiru said that Namitha refused to star in the film after several scenes in the film were canned. When he filed a complaint at the Producers’ Council, it was decided that Namitha should complete the film. Thiru says that he had to modify the story and the climax due Namitha’s indifferent behavior. He adds that Namitha was responsible for the huge losses that the producer of Azhagana Ponnuthan had incurred. According to Thiru, the climax was not what he had in mind and film was cut short by 20 minutes.[4]


Music is composed by Sundar C. Babu. Celebrities who were present during audio release lashed out against Namitha for not participating in audio release.[5][6]
