SHORT STORY

Short stories is definitely not my strength. It belongs to Ammani, the queen story teller. I wanted to do something different and so what if it is not an original idea. Let me try and take a leaf out of Ammani and now Thennavan too. So here it goes :

A boy without a mother meets a girl without a father and they fall in love.
Boy takes girl to his father and tells,
“She is your would-be daughter-in-law, but treat her like your daughter”
Father immediately obliges by making the would-be mother-in-law, his wife.

What’s the moral of the story ..eh?

  • Saranyan, vere onnum illai. Namma thalaivar pravesiththa mudhal padam and Kamal-Srividhya starrer. The father and the other girl roles were played by Major and Jaysudha. The film was called:


    Enna sollattumaa?




    Apoorva Raagangal :-)

  • Hi Saranyan,

    You are right. I got this theme from the movie Vaanamae Ellai.

  • Hi Thennavan,

    I have not seen Apoorva Ragangal. May be it has the same theme. But I got it from another Balachander film, "Vaanamae Ellai".

    In short both the films could have been finished in a few minutes but were dragged to 3+ hours. he he

  • In vaaname ellai ...I guess it was just a simple scene in one of those branch stories...the fuel to one of the suicide fires....! He takes a lil more than 10 mins to narate it! :)

  • Nice story,Hari...
    Most good storytellers have not inherited a special gene; they've succeeded through persistence and practice..
