Mozhi (Tamil: மொழி English: Language) is a Tamil language feature film produced by Prakash Raj and directed by Radha Mohan. The movie, which has a critically acclaimed storyline, stars Malayalam actor Prithwiraj, Jyothika, Prakash Raj and Swarnamalya in pivotal roles. The theme of this movie is similar to the Hollywood movie Children of a Lesser God. Although The film deals with many serious issues of life, it moves at a fast pace and is in general funny, with Prakash Raj providing most of the hilarious moments. Vidyasagar has scored the music for the film whilst Mu.Kasivishwanathan handled the editing & K.V.Guhan is the Director of Photography. Shooting sessions for the film were held at several locations including India and Mauritius. The film was released on 23 February 2007 and has become a super hit upon release despite facing Paruthiveeran at the box-office. The film is Jyothika Saravanan's last film released as she claimed that she will retire from acting after marriage. This is her last project she signed up for. The movie was greatly noticed for its dialogues, written by Viji. Prasanna, who got a good break with Duet Movies and director Radha Mohan's Azhagiya Theeye, refused to play the role of Viji, which was later taken up by Prakash Raj himself.[citation needed].

Mozhi is the first Tamil film which gets the fastest launch in the home video market. The producers are tying up with optical disc maker Moser Baer for the release. Director Radha Mohan has an offer to remake the film in Hindi, the rights of which have been acquired by Boney Kapoor.

Plot

Karthik (Prithviraj) and Viji (Prakash Raj) are close buddies, who are keyboard players in music director Vidyasagar’s team. They are brilliant in their work of re-recording and background score. They are fun loving, witty and share a great rapport. They come to live in an apartment complex where they meet a handful of interesting people. Their neighbour and flat secretary Ananthakrishnan (Brahmanandam) is not too happy about Karthik occupying the flat and asks him to vacate as bachelors are not allowed to live there. And Preethi (Neelima), a girl from one of those apartments is behind Karthik.

One day, Karthik sees a girl (Jyothika) on the road and he is quite impressed by her attitude and guts. Later he understands that she is Archana, a deaf and mute girl who lives in the same complex. Karthik falls in love with her and the friends try to find out more about her from Archana’s best friend Sheila (Swarnamalya). Karthik learns sign language and decides to make Archana his life partner, though she considers him as a good friend. She gets angry at him because she thinks when she has a baby, it will be deaf and mute like her. She avoids Karthik, and so Karthik is left in pain. In the meantime, Viji falls in love with Sheila who is a widow. At the end when it is Sheila's and Viji's wedding, Archana confesses to Karthik that she does love him. In the end, Viji and Sheila get married and Archana and Karthik admit their love for each other.

I am thinking of you' from the Malayalam film 'Satyam Sivam Sundaram'. Vidyasagar gave the music for the Malayalam movie too. The songs 'Katrin Mozhi...'and 'Savannam Saalei Katti' were the hit songs in 2007 and were critically acclaimed.
