Benkiyalli Aralida Hoovu is a 1983 Indian Kannada language film starring Suhasini in the lead role of the protagonist. She received a Filmfare award for her performance.[1] Her real-life uncle Kamal Haasan has a guest role in the film as a bus conductor.[2] K. Balachander directed and Chandulal Jain produced the film.

It is a story of a woman (Suhasini) who wonders when she will have time to live her own life, as she is too busy taking care of her mother, siblings, and her alcoholic brother's family.

The film was directed by K. Balachander and is a remake of his Tamil film Aval Oru Thodar Kathai (1974), which also had Kamal Hassan playing a different role. Hassan would appear in several more remakes of this film: the Telugu film Anthuleni Katha (1976) with Jaya Prada; and the Bengali film Kabita (1977) with Mala Sinha. The only remake that Hassan didn't appear in was the Hindi film Jeevan Dhaara (1982) starring Rekha.
