Storyline

The movie revolves around the trials and tribulations of Anu (Sujatha). Anu is a happy-go-lucky girl who is in love with her boyfriend. Her life changes when her father gets transferred to Mumbai (then Bombay). Her love life falls apart as she gets no response to any of her letters from her love. In addition, her father becomes seriously ill. Her father's office colleague, Ramanathan (Rajnikanth), becomes the new pillar of support for her in these tough times. Soon, he asks for her hand in marriage. She accepts gratefully, and confesses that she had a boyfriend, who has seemingly forgotten her. However, she soon realizes that Ramanathan is a sadistic and jealous husband, who tortures her no end so she opts for a divorce. As a divorced woman, with an infant in her hands, she lands in Chennai (Madras) to take up a new job and start a new life. Her life takes a turn for the better in Chennai with a very supportive friend-group in her office, particularly a widower, Janardhan a.k.a ... Written by Anonymous

Avargal is awesome
25 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Avargal is movie about a lady trying to fight her way to life. Married to egoist in a male dominated society makes married life for Anu a living hell. She tries to live single mothers life working fighting for her rights. She leaves Bombay to start fresh life in Madras, only to find out her ex-husband is the new boss. She fights her way out of obstacles created by her new boss. Kamal is good, Rajnikanth excels , probably one of few movies you will see Rajnikanth act his heart out , Sujatha is awesome, overall a good movie. Appreciate Balachander's thinking for women. The thought is well advanced for a movie well made in 70's. Excellent Music, well acted cast, Good screen play.
