annakili tamil movie

Annakili is a 1976 Indian Tamil-language drama film, directed by Devaraj Mohan, starring Sivakumar, Sujatha and Phataphat Jayalaxmi in lead roles. The film was produced by S. P. Thamizharasi under the production banner “SPT Films”. Story was written by R. Selvaraj and the screenplay, dialogues and lyrics were written by Panchu Arunachalam. A. Somasundaram and Kandasamy handled cinematography and editing respectively.
The film’s soundtrack was composed by Ilaiyaraaja, who made his debut as composer with this film and the lyrics were written by Panchu Arunachalam. Selvaraj insisted to have Pavalar Brothers compose the music, but Panchu selected Rasaiyya to compose as he felt it was not appropriate to have three brothers to compose music. Panchu Arunachalam added “Ilaiya” (Ilaiya means younger in Tamil language) as prefix in his name Raaja and he named as “Ilaiyaraaja” because in the 1970s there was one more music director A. M. Rajah who was a popular one.
The film revolves around Annakili, who falls in love with teacher Thyagarajan. Due to circumstances, Thyagarajan marries another girl. Azhagappan, a womaniser creates a misunderstanding about Annakili among the villagers; the rest of the film shows how Annakili proves her innocence. The film was released on 14 May 1976 and became a commercial success at box office. The film was screened at Indian Panorama Film Festival in 1978. The film’s soundtrack was composed by Ilaiyaraaja, who made his debut as composer with this film.
