Kadhal Kavithai (English: Poem of Love) is a 1998 Indian Tamil language romance film directed
by Agathiyan and produced by Murali Manohar. The film features Prashanth and Isha Koppikar in
the lead roles, while Kasthuri, Manivannan and Srividya play other supporting characters. The film
had music composed by Ilaiyaraaja, while duo Lancy-Mohan and Ravi Yadav handled the editing
and cinematography respectively.
The storyline revolves around a classical dancer who, while touring Europe, visits Princess Diana's
memorial at Althorp. Browsing through the various messages left by the public, she comes across a
poetic, poignant epistle in Tamil that captivates her and impels her to scribble a response. While
returning a few days later, she finds the author of that note has left another one, prompting her to
begin to search for the author. After opening in December 1998, the film went on to gain success
critically and became a commercially successful venture.[1]

Plot[edit]
Vishwa (Prashanth) spends his time hanging out with Anandham (Charlie) to avoid his mother
(Ambika), who always quarrels with his dad (Manivannan). To find peace, he plays tricks on others.
Among the victims is Jothi (Isha Koppikar). The story moves to London, where Vishva visits Princess
Diana's grave and leaves a beautiful poem behind. At the same time, Jothi too visits the grave and
leaves a note after reading the poem. Then begins a warm relationship between Jothi and Vishwa
without seeing each other. Whether the two are united form the rest of the story.

Production[edit]
After the success of Shankar's 1998 romantic film Jeans, the co-producer Ashok Amritraj agreed to
work with actor Prashanth again in his next film and thus signed on to finance a film to be directed by
Agathiyan.[2][3] The film was initially titled Adhisayam (Wonder) and shooting began in Tamil Nadu in
August 1998.[4] The film went through a change of title to Kaadhal Kavithai, reminiscent of
Agathiyan's yesteryear film Kadhal Kottai and Amritraj sold the project to Sunanda Murali
Manohar of Cee I TV Limited.[5]
Isha Koppikar made her debut as an actor with this film, despite signing on to appear in K. S.
Ravi's En Swasa Kaatre before Kaadhal Kavithai.[6] Raju Sundaram choreographed a belly dance
song shot in Rajasthan featuring actress Kasthuri.[2] Part of the film is shot in London, with locations
including near the River Thames, the Houses of Parliament, Piccadilly Circus and Althorp, where the
memorial to Princess Diana was located.[7][8]
