Whom the sisters marry at the end of the film form the crux of the story.

The film opened to Indian audiences after several delays, on May 4, 2000 just after the Tamil New Year, and in the process became one of the biggest multi-starrers in Tamil cinema history.

Owing to its success, it was later dubbed into the Telugu language and released as Priyuraalu Pilichindi. Scored by A. R. Rahman, it spawned a successful soundtrack. Furthermore, the film went on to win several awards in different competitions, with Shankar Mahadevan winning a National Film Award for Best Male Playback Singer in the process.

Development

Prabhu Deva who had worked earlier in Rajiv Menon’s debut fillm Minsara Kanavu introduced Kalaipuli S. Thanu to Rajiv Menon, in mid 1998. Initially the film was planned as a low budget film, concentrating more on the characters rather than “star” power. Rajiv Menon practically met all the leading ladies of Tamil and malayalam cinema at that time. But it was Tabu who agreed almost instantly. So did Ajith, who, at that time, was hospitalised with a back injury and didn’t have any great offers. Rajiv Menon met Aishwarya Rai in Mumbai and narrated her the script, to which she readily agreed. It just happened that she had some dates free and it was then in February 1999, producer Kalaipuli S. Dhanu announced the film Kandukondain Kandukondain, with Rajiv Menon making his second appearance as a director. As like his previous film, A. R. Rahman was signed onto compose the music to Vairamuthu’s lyrics. Sujatha Rangarajan wrote the dialogues for the film, while Menon decided not to serve as the film’s cinematographer, allowing Ravi K. Chandran to handle the camera. Choreography duties were shared between Brinda and Raju Sundaram, whilst, Vikram Dharma handled the stunts in the movie. Most of the shooting is done on location in Karaikudi. The script was an Indian version of Jane Austen’s novel, Sense and Sensibility, more precisely an adaptation of Ang Lee’s 1995 film version of Sense and Sensibility, which had won an Oscar for Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium for Emma Thompson. But nowhere in the credits does one see any acknowledgment of the fact that the story is an adaptation for Jane Austen’s novel. In fact, Rajiv Menon takes this credit for himself.

Almost all leading actors were approached for various roles in the movie, finally Mammootty and Ajith Kumar were given lead roles in the film while Abbas was in a supporting role after Prabhu Deva and then Prashanth opted out of the film.[2] Senior actor Srividya was selected to play the mother of the heroines, whilst Manivannan, Raghuvaran and Nizhagal Ravi were also given senior roles in the film. Shamili, Ajith’s sister-in-law, made her first appearance as an actress since her National Award-winning role in Anjali, whilst Bollywood actors Pooja Batra and Dino Morea appeared in cameos. Menon’s mother, Kalyani Menon, noted music director, A. R. Rahman and Malaysia Vasudevan Gangai Amaran all made cameo appearances as themselves in the project.
