The iconic Tamil movie of the ‘60s is still revered for its emotional portrayal of the siblings Rajasekharan and Radha, played by Sivaji Ganeshan and Savitri. The movie, helmed by A. Bhimsingh, revolves around two siblings who lost their mother at a young age, and their further struggles in life. Different shades of a relationship like happiness, sacrifice, sorrow, hatred, etc are depicted through the characters and conflicts between them, after both of them get married. The movie is also considered evergreen because of the heartwarming songs it has.

The movie helmed by Bharathiraja is also popular for its music, handled by A R Rahman.

The 2006 film features another deep bonding of the siblings Muthupandi and Kavitha (played by Prabhu and Trisha respectively), who are orphaned from a very young age. The brother takes care of her sister and stands as her greatest strength throughout her life. The sister, in-return, prioritises him first in every walk of her life. At one point, she refuses to accept her boyfriend as her brother is insulted by his family, and decides to marry him only after his brother’s approval.

No audience can forget the bond shared by Velayudham and Kaveri (played by Vijay and Saranya Mohan) in the 2011 movie Velayudham, as it is one of the best examples of innocent representation of love in Kollywood. The brother and sister are funny, loving and caring towards each other and stand as a strong support for each other’s dreams as well. Although their bond ends in a tragedy, leaving the audience teary-eyed, they are still the favourite siblings of many Tamil audiences.

Even after two years of release, the popular song ‘Un Koodave Porakkanum’ composed by Imman, is still in demand among brothers and sisters, thanks to the lyrics and music which are more than enough to leave them in tears. The song is from the 2019 Tamil movie Namma Veettu Pillai, featuring Sivakarthikeyan and Aishwarya Rajesh as siblings. The movie has several emotional drama episodes in it including a climax scene which remains one of the best emotional sequences in a family movie released in the last decade.
