Arputham is a 2002 Indian Tamil-language romantic drama film directed by Arputhan. The film features Raghava Lawrence, Kunal and Anu Prabhakar in the lead roles. Arputham merges two of the most enduring concepts in Tamil cinema—the love triangle and the rags-to-riches story. The film was remade in Bengali as Sajani (2004).


Ashok (Raghava Lawrence) is a good for nothing youth spending most of his time with his friends. Despite coming from a middle-class family, Ashok neither has an urge to earn money nor improve the standards of his life. One day, Ashok meets Priya (Anu Prabhakar) and falls for her impressed by her beauty and character. Ashok proposes Priya and threatens that he would commit suicide if she does not accept his love. Priya, although not interested in Ashok, convinces him saying that he should first achieve something in life and then propose her. This marks a change in Ashok's life. After many attempts, he finally decides to start a mobile fast food restaurant which becomes a good success. Ashok develops his business gradually with the help of financial aid from Arvind (Kunal) who happens to be a bank manager. Actually Arvind and Priya are in love as well which Ashok does not know.
