Summary: The celebrated playwright and scenarist of
Thanneer Thanneer (filmed in 1981) turned
director with Yuddha Kandam (1983) and this
emphatic reformist melodrama is his 3rd effort.
It tells of a woman intellectual, Anamika
(Suhasini), who, when exposed to tribal
authenticity, becomes an activist on behalf of
the tribals in the Javadhi Hills. Overcoming the
extremes of political persecution with the help
of an honest and therefore victimised
policeman, Muthuvel (Rajeev), she exposes the
rapist of a tribal woman (Lalitha): the son of a
powerful politician who stops at nothing to
cover up his son’s crime.
