Thanga Meengal can also be included under the above mentioned category. Director Ramsubramaniam (Ram), who made his debut with the movie Katrathu Tamil in 2007, has made a remarkable debut as an actor too.
The movie deals with the story of a common man named
Kalyanasundaram, who lives his every breath for his daughter
Chellamma (Sadhana). He will not be smart enough in earning the
money and every time he will humiliated by his father.

Producer Gautham Menon
