     91995’s surprise hit in Tamil was a low-budget 
     10ruralist ‘folk’ movie extensively featuring 
     11traditional narrative and performative forms 
     12including the karagam, kavadi, oyil, nayandi, 
     13komali etc., mounted in deliberate contrast to 
     14the post-Mani Rathnam emphasis on glossy 
     15technologically driven spectacles. Parijatham 
     16(Khushboo), a popular karagam dancer, wants 
     17to continue dancing even after her marriage to 
     18Pazhanisamy (Sivakumar), a noted performer. 
     19When Parijatham returns to the stage, in order 
     20to pay her husband’s debts, her insecure 
     21husband throws her out, forcing her to return 
     22to her mother (Manorama). The husband later 
     23wins custody of their son Velusami. When the 
     24son grows up and learns the truth, he 
     25abandons his father. Pazhanisamy, faced with a 
     26biitter feud with the village headman, later 
     27appeals to his estranged wife to help him in a 
     28climactic dance-duel, which she eventually 
     29wins after her husband’s death. Billed after a 
     30long gap as an Ilaiyaraja solo, the film’s earthy 
     31folk music - notably the song Othe roova 
     32tharen (‘I shall give you a rupee’) - proved the 
     33most successful of the year in Tamil film.
