Bharathi Kannamma is a 2019 Indian television Tamil Social drama series aired on Star Vijay. It premiered on 25 February 2019. It stars Roshni Haripriyan Das who plays the role of a girl (Kannamaa) having a dusky complexion who has to fight the social norm of not being fair-skinned in India.[1] The series is a remake of the Malayalam television series Karuthamuthu.[2]


Kannamma, a girl of a pure heart, is looked down upon by her beautiful but arrogant stepsister Anjali and stepmother Bhagyalakshmi owing to her dark complexion. Her only support in the house is her father Shanmugam, who praises her character and hates Bhagyam and Anjali for belittling her. Soundharya is a business tycoon who is obsessed with beauty and fair-skin and dominant. Her son Bharathi is a charming young doctor who follows his heart. Anjali wins the Miss Chennai pageant, and Soundharya develops an instant liking for her beauty and fixes her second son Akhil's wedding with her. Akilan falls for Anjali while she maintains an immense crush on Bharathi. Amidst this, Bharathi and Kannamma frequently encounter each other and Bharathi is impressed by Kannamma's kindness and generosity.

Anjali blackmails Bharathi to marry her or else she will commit suicide. Bharathi says he will talk with his mother after her (Anjali's) birthday party which is arranged by Soundharya later. Bharathi meets Kannamma and Anjali's father and asks his permission to marry Kannamma and reveals that he cannot sire children and asks Kannamma's father to tell this to Kannamma. If she accepts this, he will marry her in a temple. Kannamma's father is unable to find relations for Kannamma and accepts the proposal, but doesn't inform Kannamma about Bharathi's inability to have children. Kannamma is happy that a man with a good heart will marry her. On Anjali's birthday, Bharathi marries Kannamma without anyone from either side and brings her to the birthday party. Soundharya becomes angry that Bharathi married the swarthy girl. Anjali is furious that Bharathi married her elder sister, not her. Akhil, Bharathi's younger brother and Bharathi's father Venu Gopalakrishnan (Rishi Keshav) are happy.However, after some insults, Soundharya allows Kannamma to be in the house and later Anjali marries Akhil but Anjali wants to get rid of Kannamma and Anjali and wants to marry Bharathi but she eventually fails and Soundharya senses odd behavior of Anjali and warns her to be a good wife and daughter-in-law or she will expel her. Anjali stops the attempts and starts loving Akhil.Meanwhile, a new character, Dr. Venba (Farina Azad), enters, obsessive lover of Bharathi, targets the couple, she was also Bharathi's childhood friend. Soundharya likes Venba as she is fair-skinned. Venba becomes angry when she learns Bharathi is married and promises herself she will get him back. Kannamma consults Venba as she wants to get pregnant and wants to know why she isn't expecting yet and Bharathi discusses this with Venba and she convinces Bharathi to change the reports before all of this.


Bharathi and Kannamma go for Kannamma's school reunion. Venba is there, too. A new character, Varun (Raju Jeyamohan), Kannamma's classmate is introduced and Venba makes Bharathi believe Kannamma is cheating on him with Varun. Meanwhile, Kannamma gives some things that a sister gives to a brother. They return from there and Venba manipulates Bharathi more and more so he blindly believes Kannamma is cheating on him. Currently, Kannamma believes the reports that she can't have children. Soundharya learns of this and wants Bharathi to marry again. Venba is happy about this as she believes Soundharya will choose her to be Bharathi's second wife but is betrayed when Soundharya chooses someone else. Soundharya informs Bharathi that she will engage him to another woman the next day. Bharathi is shocked by this and asks Kannamma if she knows about the engagement while Kannamma is fast asleep. Kannamma doesn't answer. The next day Kannamma awakens and is shocked to hear about preparations of engagement. Kannamma cries, thinking Bharathi accepted this. Kannamma's father learns of the engagement and stops it. Soundharya lashes out at him, saying Kannamma can't bear the children. The other day Kannamma had some symptoms of pregnancy so with the advice of Arivumani(Kavya)(Bharathi's cousin sister) she takes a pregnancy test and it turns out to be positive and tells Soundharya Bharathi doesn't need to marry again as Kannamma is pregnant.

Venba approaches the serial killer Durga who only kills bad people. Venba convinces him that Kannamma cheated on her friend Bharathi and that he wants to get rid of her. Durga accepts the deal and enters as the car driver especially for Kannamma. Kannamma is sad that Bharathi is behaving oddly with her and showing no sign of happiness for the pregnancy. Kannamma goes to her parents where even her father treats her weirdly, so tearful Kannamma returns. After seeing Kannamma's kindness, Durga is convinced that Venba is the bad one. Venba learns of this and convinces Durga she won't harm Kannamma anymore but Durga doesn't believe her and remains the car driver to protect Kannamma from Venba. Venba plans to kill both of them as she killed Hema, but they escape with few injuries but Durga succumbed to his injuries. Later Durga confesses to Kannamma he was there to kill her. Hearing this, a stunned Kannamma asks who wants to kill her, as she never harmed anyone her entire life. Durga says Bharathi to protect Venba as he is in love with Venba. Kannamma returns home and prepares to leave the house but Soundharya stops her and asks why she wants to leave the house. A tearful Kannamma tells Soundharya that her Bharathi wants to kill her and the baby which is growing in her womb. Hearing this, the family is shocked and they ask Bharathi why he wants to kill his pregnant wife and Bharathi says he may dislike her but would never try to kill her. Furious, he spills the truth, saying he isn't the father of the child, shocking Kannamma. Soundharya slaps Bharathi, telling him to watch his words. Bharathi shows the reports to the family and everyone becomes silent. A betrayed Kannamma leaves the house saying she can't live in a house where her loyalty and love are questioned. She goes to her parent's house and confronts her father regarding him knowing the truth from the beginning and storms off. A guilty father tries to stops her and asks her to live with him, but Kannamma says even he doubted her and leaves. Soundharya believes, but Venu Gopalakrishnan and Akhil don't believe Bharathi and ask to take the tests again but Venba convinces him not again to test. Kannamma tries to find a job so she can take care of the baby.

Later Soundharya tries to convince Bharathi to take the test, but Bharathi doesn't listen to her. After so many hurdles, Kannamma gives birth to twins and Soundharya takes one baby away so the babies can reconcile their parents. Soundharya takes the dark-skinned baby with her to redeem herself for mistreating Kannamma while she was in the house. Kannamma awakens and caresses her remaining baby. Thulasi, the nurse who delivered Kannamma's baby, offers shelter to Kannamma. Soundharya takes the baby home and says she got the baby from an orphanage so Bharathi could care for her. Bharathi initially doesn't care for the baby, but slowly begins to love her. Bharathi and his family name the baby Hema in the remembrance of his ex-lover Hema and Kannamma names her baby Soundharyalakshmi her mother-in-law's name. Meanwhile one day, Venba tries to marry Bharathi with his approval but later gets stopped by his mother Soundharya. Kannamma leaves the city to live peacefully with her baby.

8 years later[3][edit]

Hema and Soundharyalakshmi are now eight years old. Kannamma lives with Soundharyalakshmi in a village where they meet Palani and Seetha and became close to them. Kannamma runs a tailor shop. Bharathi and his family come to that village for organising a free medical camp for those people, unaware that Kannamma lives there. The family stays there to attend the village's temple festival. Bharathi meets Soundharyalakshmi, not knowing that she is his daughter. After 8 years, Durga has become a doctor. Now all the staff and patients from Venba's hospital go to Durga's hospital just opposite the road; it makes Venba angry. But Durga falls in love with Venba. Now Kannamma and Soundharyalakshmi go to Chennai by auto. There, Soundharyalakshmi goes into Bharathi's hospital and asks where he is. Meanwhile, Kannamma stays in the auto and sees Bharathi leaving the hospital and stay near his car. She hides from him, but Bharathi does not see her since he was on a phone call.
