Poikkal Kudhirai is a 1983 Tamil-language Indian comedy feature film directed by K. Balachander and produced by Kalaivani. Starring Viji and Raveendran, the film had Ramakrishna and lyricist Vaali making their acting debuts. Kamal Haasan appeared in a guest role. Poikkal Kudhirai was based on Crazy Mohan's play Marriage Made in Saloon. It was officially remade in Kannada as Mavanige Takka Aliya starring Shivarajumar.


Based on the play A Marriage Made in Saloon by Crazy Mohan, Poikkal Kuthirai is an hilarious depiction of how Sambandam (Vaali) — who bets on each and every small thing and wins — and Indu (Ramakrishnan) enter into a bet at a saloon owned by Muthu (Ravindar). The bet is that Indu will win Sambadam's daughter Janaki's (Viji) heart and marry her. If Indhu is successful in his mission, Sambandam will shave half of his moustache for their marriage. If he fails, Indhu will shave his head.

Who wins the bet is the film's narrative.



Lyricist Vaali made his acting debut in the film as Sambandham.[1]


Soundtrack was composed by M. S. Viswanathan and lyrics were written by Vaali.[2] The soundtrack was released under the label "Saregama".[3]
