Kavalai Illaadha Manithan (English: The man without worries) is a 1960 Tamil film directed by K. Shankar. The film features J. P. Chandrababu, M. R. Radha, T. S. Balaiah and Rajasulochana in lead roles. Kannadasan wrote script and lyrics for the film, and appeared in an uncredited role in this film. Despite the melodious music, impressive performances by Chandrababu, Radha, Balaiah and Rajasulochana, the film was not a success.
Muthu (Chandrababu), a lawyer with no care in this wicked world, makes it his mission to solve the problems of fellow human beings. (Incidentally, Kannadasan’s real name is Muthaiah.) In sharp contrast, his brother (Radha) believes in creating trouble for those around him, especially the women. Their affluent father (Balaiah) believes only in money and is not bothered about other things in life. He fixes the marriage of his wayward son with a woman Sivakami (Rajam), but she is in love with a young man (Mahalingam). True to his wont, he seduces a poor woman (Rajasulochana) whom he abandons with a child.
Muthu takes all the necessary steps to correct the wrongs done by his brother (Radha) and succeeds in bringing the lovers together, and also marries a young woman (Vijayalakshmi).
