One day tragedy strikes as his father, the only earning member of the family, dies in an accident while crossing an unmanned railway gate. Mahesh now has to look after his mother and two sisters.

A must watch Tamil film of all time
24 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

even a small kid from T.N. knows that the busiest part of Chennai is "T.Nagar",mainly 'Ranganathan Street' its the plot for this movie.Anjali as a sales girl,Mahesh as a sales boy are apt for their respective roles.Director Vasanthabalan once again reaches deep into the hearts of Tamil Cinema Lovers with his Jubilant Screenplay and emotion filled duologue's.One can easily feel the pain of poverty in the lives of such sales boys & girls.After Perannmai this is another good production by Ayngaran Production house.Many of Tamil viewers anticipated a national award for this film but unfortunately the jury didn't make a great decision for awards.After a longtime i can sense tears flowing out from my eyes while watching a movie.yes, "Angadi Theru" is such an emotion trapped film.this film throws light on the unnoticed lives of sales boys & girls.At last i guarantee u that "Angadi Theru" is not just a movie to watch & forget but a movie to remember & cherish for a lifetime.Thanks to the movie crew for an everlasting emotional documentation............
