Storyline

Kalyana Parisu, director C.V.Sridhar's debut film, deals with triangle love, two women vying for the same man. The film enjoyed huge box-office popularity. Gemini Ganesh is a bachelor, who had to leave his college before finishing his final year at University. He meets Thangavelu in a park and they become friends. Gemini Ganesh goes to rent a house, where the house owner is a mother living with her two young and unmarried daughters. The younger girl(Saroja Devi) is prettier and studies in college. She and Gemini fall in love, but this is not known to the others. Meanwhile the elder sister (Vijayakumari) also falls in love with Gemini . The younger sister gives up her love for elder sister's sake, this sacrifice is unknown to the elder sister. This film presented Ganesh as a victimized, tragic hero in a melodramatic story supporting the observance of social convention. Written by Chandralekha

flawless movie

Its hard to believe that this is C.V Sridhar's debut movie.You can really find a freshness in the film.the cast includes Gemini ganesan,saroja devi and vijayakumari.Especially the dialogues are well penned which enriches the quality of the movie.One unique characteristic of sridhar movie is that he does not confuse audience with lot of characters.He narrates the story with limited characters and justifies each and every character with utmost intelligence.music is scored by A.M.Raja which is outstanding and the background score also is good .sridhar has his own way of narrating happenings.Especially in the scene where gemini ganesan and saroja devi used to meeet daily,the director shows a small plant growing day by day and finally when the story takes a unexpected twist when saroja devi forsakes her love for her sister,the same plant loses leaves and stands with stem alone.The climax is very neat and when gemini ganesan wants to call out "vasanthi"(saroja devi) and streches his hand but finds his hand filled with flowers to wish the newly married couple, its hard to resist tears.On the whole the movie is a must watch......
