Agriculturist Velu (Kamal Haasan) goes to extremes to attain revenge against his devious landlord and her family. He is an upright young man, but when his family gets cheated out of money and his sister gets raped by the landlord's son, he decides it's time to take a stand. Donning various disguises, he—with help from his sister Valli (Thulasi) and friend Poonae (Y. G. Mahendran) - sets out seeking justice against the landlord and her confrontational daughter Geetha (Ambika) and son Pazhani (Raveendran).

    Release and reception

    Sakalakala Vallavan was released on 14 August 1982. Despite facing competition from another Muthuraman-directed film Enkeyo Ketta Kural, released on the same day, both films succeeded commercially.


    Sakalakala Vallavan widened Kamal Haasan's audience base from the "classes" to a hero of the "masses". Film historian G. Dhananjayan noted that while Haasan was then considered an "A-centre star", the film took him "to the B and C centres". Sakalakala Vallavan inspired a 2015 film of same name starring Jayam Ravi which had no similarity to this film. Sudhir Srinivasan of The Hindu noted that both films were "about a gold-hearted villager and his taming of an urban woman". Title also inspired a show aired on Kalaignar TV. In June 2013, A. Muthusamy of Honey Bee Music enhanced the songs from their original version on the film's soundtrack album to 5.1 surround sound.
