Naan Mahaan Alla (English: I'm not a saint) is a 1984 Indian Tamil-language film directed by S. P. Muthuraman.[1] It features Rajinikanth, Radha and M. N. Nambiar in the lead roles.


Viswanath (Rajinikanth), a famous lawyer, stays with his widowed mother (Vijayakumari) and physically handicapped sister (Uma). He sends Jagan, a rich magnate's son (Sathyaraj) and Lokaiya, two criminals to jail on the charge of rape and murder of an innocent girl. Jagan’s father, GMK (M N Nambiar) uses his influence and starts creating trouble in Viswanath’s life. GMK succeeds in getting Viswanath imprisoned on a trumped up charge. His heartbroken mother dies. Once out of jail, Viswanath sets out to punish the culprits when he temporarily loses his eyesight.



The film was originally titled Naan Gandhi Alla but, following a court order, was retitled Naan Mahaan Alla.[2][3]


Music composed by Ilaiyaraja[4] and lyrics were penned by Vaali.
