Maadappura (Balcony Pigeon) is a Tamil language film, directed by S. A. Subbaraman. The film features M. G. Ramachandran, B. Saroja Devi and Vasanthi in lead roles. The film, produced by B. V. N. Productions, had musical score by K. V. Mahadevan and was released on 16 February 1962. The film ran for only 70 days and was an average performer for an MGR film at the box office.


In the 1960s; the murder of Varadaradjan, the lawyer of a very rich family of the Tamil capital plunges them into chaos.

Ramu (MGR), the elder son takes the blame for the crime to save Murthy (T. K. Balachandran), his young half brother.

In his escape, the fugitive can count on the indestructible support of two women, Vasantha (Vasanthi) and Meena (B. Saroja Devi) who love him, the first one officially and the second, secretly.

He is also helped by the good Velaiya (M. R. Radha) who worked at the brothers's house before the misfortune.

Ramu is chased by the policeman Mogan (M. K. Mustapha), persuaded by his guilt and also by Khannan (M. N. Nambiar) and his criminals' band, who want into his colossal fortune, conspiring since the beginning, with Varadaradjan, much less honest than we could hope for of a lawyer.

Ramu leads an investigation to prove his innocence and produce the real culprit, who is other than Khannan.

Ramu will finally emerge as innocent thanks to the testimony swapping with his girlfriend, Parvadi alias Chandra ("Gemini" Chandra).

She was present when Khanna struck the fatal blow to Varadaradjan.

Towards the end of its trip, as ultimate test, pricked by a dangerous snake, Ramu owes his safety only to the older brother of his beloved deceased Vasantha, the fairground entertainer Muathaiyandhi (Kulaideivam V. R. Rajagopal).

Ramu can find comfort from now on in the arms of the one who became, in this precarious adventure, his deserved wife, Meena.
