Rajapart Rangadurai (English: Rangadurai in King's Attire) is a 1973 Tamil drama film directed by P.Mathavan and stars Sivaji Ganesan and Ushanandini.
It narrates the story about a poor drama actor. It is a film on theatre artists who in time have been ignored, they play all roles from mythology characters to patriotic people but fail to appeal a modern genre of viewers who part their ways to more glamour and glitter. It is a symbolic film of past being rejected by the present and love and affection have no place in a selfish world. Sivaji Ganesan's one of the most outstanding film roles, where he displays his characters like Bhagat Singh, Joker, Tiruppur kumaran and even lord Murugan.
