Kandukondain Kandukondain (Tamil: கண்டுகொண்டேன் கண்டுகொண்டேன்; English: I Have Found It) is a 2000 Tamil musical and romantic film based on Jane Austen's novel Sense and Sensibility. Directed and co-written by Rajiv Menon, the film features an ensemble cast of Mammootty in the lead role with Aishwarya Rai, Ajith Kumar, Tabu and Abbas. Veteran actors Srividya, Raghuvaran and Manivannan also play other pivotal roles.
The plot features two young sisters with differing views on love who find themselves with three suitors. The elder sister attracts the attention of an aspiring film director, while a wounded commando falls for her younger, hopelessly romantic sister but hesitates because he is much older than she. Meanwhile, the younger sister meets and falls for an upcoming businessman with a passion for Tamil poetry. However, problems lap up from different directions, resulting in emotional turmoil for both sisters. Whom the sisters marry forms the crux of the story.
The film opened to Indian audiences, after several delays, on 4 May 2000 gaining positive reviews and becoming a successful venture commercially. Kandukondain Kandukondain was dubbed and released in Telugu as Priyuraalu Pilichindi, and the producers released subtitled versions worldwide. The film's chart-topping soundtrack scored by A. R. Rahman won critical acclaim and set a ten-year-long sales record; a song composed by him and sung by Shankar Mahadevan won a National Film Award for Best Male Playback Singer in the process. The film went on to feature in international film festivals and gain notable awards.
