     15Rathnam’s art-house melodrama just prior to 
     16his big-budget breakthrough hit Nayakan 
     17(1987). Divya (Revathi) is unable to resign 
     18herself to a forced marriage living in Delhi with 
     19Chandra Kumar (Mohan). She recalls, in 
     20flashback, her carefree days with her first 
     21boyfriend, the gansgter Manmohan (Karthik), 
     22who was shot dead in front of a temple even as 
     23she waited inside to marry him. She seeks a 
     24divorce, but as the law requires the couple to 
     25stay together for a year, they decide to live 
     26separately in the same house. After she has 
     27nursed her husband back to health following a 
     28murderous attack by an employee, the couple 
     29decide to stay together. The film inaugurates 
     30the Tamil love story genre set outside the state, 
     31associated with the director (cf. Roja, 1992), 
     32also featuring camerawork typically associated 
     33with Rathnam and Sriram: frontal and profile 
     34close-ups, set against long shots with fuzzy 
     35foreground. Not to be confused with Ambili’s 
     36Malayalam Mouna Ragam (1983).
