Naam Iruvar Namakku Iruvar (Tamil:நாம் இருவர் நமக்கு இருவர்) (English: We Two, Ours Two) is a 1998 Tamil film directed by Sundar C. Prabhu Deva and Meena played the leading roles, whilst the film featured an extensive cast, along with a bevy of supporting actors. The film released on 14 January 1998 and became a big success at the box office.[1] The film was loosely based on the 1995 Hollywood movie Two Much.



The film is about Prabhu (Prabhu Deva) and Mani (Manivannan) who earn money through dubious means to support a few orphaned children. They steal a diamond but while escaping, Mani stuffs the diamond into a toy sitting in a car. Chasing the toy takes them to the house of K.D.Chandrasekhar (S. S. Chandran), a rich man in Ooty and with Mani posing as the longlost husband of KD's sister, they enter the household. Pooja (Maheshwari), KD's daughter, falls in love with Prabhu but just as he is being engaged to her, he finds out that her sister Indu (Meena) is the woman of his dreams, the woman he had lost his heart to after seeing her for a few minutes in Coimbatore. Meena bared fully So, he takes off his beard to assume a new identity as Deva, Prabhu's brother and proceeds to woo Indu.[2]

Prabhudeva, Maheshwari and the entire crew including Sundar C. had landed in South Africa. Rambha had not boarded the plane with them as planned. Na.Ir.Na.Ir unit became nervous, not knowing what to do, as the shooting time and spot that they had reserved in Sun City was going to waste. After waiting for a long time, they went ahead and had Maheshwari put on Rambha's costumes and picturized the song with her and Prabhudeva. Rambha, who arrived two days later, got wild and furious that Sundar and company would picturize the song without her. She immediately placed a call to the Rajkamal office in Chennai and asked them to book a ticket on one of the first flights out of South Africa to India. Rambha went back to Chennai almost three days before the Na.Ir.Na.Ir unit and got ready to dance for Kaathala Kaathala instead. Sundar and others who were angry and disappointed with Rambha's behavior filed a complaint with the Film Chamber. Meanwhile, more developments came about once Rambha was kicked out of the film. It appeared that Sundar's dearest, Kushboo had strongly thrown in a recommendation for Simran and Nagma to grab the role that Rambha had trashed, but Meena entered the picture from somewhere, all of a sudden.[3] The fact is that Meena gave up her Kaathala Kaathala role for Rambha and Soundarya, while Rambha gave up her Naam Iruvar Namakku Iruvar role for Meena. On a side note to the entire matter, Simran has now declared that she gave up her chances to star in Kaathala Kaathala and Naam Iruvar Namakku Iruvar, because she did not want to pack herself with call sheet troubles and not be able to act in that she had already committed to.[4]
