Paatti Sollai Thattathe

Paatti Sollai Thattathe (lit. Do not disobey your grandmother's words) is a 1988 Tamil-language comedy film, directed by Rajasekhar and produced by AVM. The story was copied from Raj Kapoor and Waheeda Rehman starrer Ek Dil Sau Afsane(1963) a Hindi film. The film stars Pandiarajan, Urvashi and Manorama in leading roles. This film featured a Super car (a Volkswagen Beetle, like The Love Bug in 1968, an American comedy film by Walt Disney Productions, that starred an anthropomorphic pearl-white, fabric-sunroofed 1963 Volkswagen racing Beetle named Herbie) in the climax, which was considered as a super scene. The film was remade in Telugu as Bamma Maata Bangaru Baata (1990).[2]

Selvam returns at his home, having ended his high studies. In the train which returns him, he meets Seetha (Urvashi), graduate also, who avoids her home, because of a marriage forced with a notorious procurer. Because he knows how to marry not with the one who was intended he and chosen by the good care of his grandmother, Selvam exiles himself with Seetha, who has just married him, towards the capital. The couple meets difficult debuts, because they are obliged to work in the same office, by pretending not to know each other. They have to face a multitude of qui pro quos. Then once reconciled with his grandmother, Selvam and Seetha is obliged to lie him, by presenting him a child who is not theirs. Indeed, Vadjiran Suppaiya who had come see his grandson, well before, leaves Seetha with a child in her arms. The old man deduced that it was theirs. Selvam "thus" "rented", with Anushiya (Silk Smitha), her baby, to keep up appearances. But the young woman turns out to be a big swindler. She exploits the situation of the couple.
