Santhi (English: Silence) is a 1965 Indian Tamil-language film, directed by A. Bhimsingh and produced by A. L. Srinivasan. The film stars Sivaji Ganesan, C. R. Vijayakumari, S. S. Rajendran and Devika in lead roles. The film had musical score by Viswanathan–Ramamoorthy.[1][2][3][4]



Santhi marked the final time Sivaji Ganesan and M. R. Radha appeared together onscreen.[5]


Santhi was originally scheduled for release on 10 April 1965, but was instead released 12 days later because the Censor Board originally wanted to give the film an "A" (adults only) certificate. The makers of the film thought this would prevent people from bringing their families to the theatres and it took some time for them to get the film a "U" (universal) certificate.[5]
