While the same father, an activist speaker travels the country, by crying out, by preaching, to anyone who might be listening the virtues of the abolition of this feudal system.
To take him in her own trap, break so his hypocrisy and in memory especially of her older sister, Radha (B. Sarojadevi), the second girl of Dharmalingham leaves on the meeting of the mysterious benefactor that seems being Thiyagu (MGR), decided well to get married to him.
Indeed, this good model son, adoptive, gave up his immense heritage, preferring to bequeath integrality to the blue-collar workers of his late father (P.S.Vengathachalam).
Thiyagu (MGR) ends up leaving the family field and is put in search of plenitude, by making of course its passage.
Radha (B. Sarojadevi), meanwhile, falls into the claws from Djambhu (M. N. Nambiar), a former gardener who holds for person in charge of all his misfortunes the father (V. K. Ramaswamy) of this one, particularly the death of his mother and her little sister.
He deprives Radha (B. Sarojadevi) of its sight and puts it at the corners streets so that she begs.
Alas, neither one, nor the other can be recognized, be identified about it.

Around the movie
The director-producer B.R.Pandhulu returns to his puppy loves, by making the actor, on NADHODHI, he makes it a very short appearance, according to DVD, (Pyramid Vision, of 0.26.37. in 0.29.44.) or (Raj Video Vision, of 0.16.19. in 0.19.40.) in old wise person poet who consoles the character played by MGR, the good Thiyagu and predicts him that a brilliant future, of the richest waits for him.
The scene where Thiyagu is arrested and sentenced for disorder to the order public, during a party of a local divinity, is pulled quite straight ahead by the classic American MODERN TIMES 1936, written and directed by Charlie Chaplin.
NADHODHI is built around one of the major plagues of the Indian society : the system of castes.
The sequence of the cure of the person of the main actress, B.Sarodja Devi is made more credible one by the advices of a true practitioner, the doctor P.S.Sari, thanked in the credits of opening of NADHODHI.
His homologue, in the screen, the doctor Nagendhran played here by the excellent actor K.R.Ramasamy, in guest of honor.
The actor veteran P.S.Venkitachalam, nicknamed affectionately and respectfully " Appa " Venkitachalam plays on NADHODHI, the good foster father, Arumugham of MGR-Thiyagu.
K.R.Ramakrishnan says K.R.R., lighting stand-in and bodyguard of MGR plays the role of a police officer.
Indeed, the character of MGR, Thiyagu becomes by the strength of the events, a wandering always in the good heart, where he passes, he carries out the good and to live cheek of the music on his harmonium. Thus, the music of M.S.V. takes all its sense.
NADHODHI starts immediately by a song, "Ulagamengum Orey..." a duet intoned by the key couple of interpreter, T.M.S. - P.S., in the screen MGR-Bharati. The words are one more time of the feather of the poet Khannadhassan. For the melody, M.S.V. went to dig into the country of Abraham Lincoln, he set his heart on a very old popular ballad of the South Carolina, on 1866, entitled Tom Dooley.
In the soundtrack of the movie, NADHODHI, the title " Kadhavul tandai pâdhum... " are the words sung as it is, to the screen, by the tenor T.M.Soundher Radjan.
On the vinyl of time, we find another version, which begins with " Kadhavul seîdai pâvum... ".
The great Khannadhassan so modified certainly, because of the censorship of time. Let us remember ourselves that we are in 1966.
The DMK did not pass yet, it is necessary to wait still for a few months, to wait until 23 February 1967...
