Johnny (1980) is a Tamil film directed by Mahendran. It had Rajinikanth and Sridevi in the main roles with Rajinikanth in a dual role.

Archana (Sridevi) is a popular singer, and Johnny (Rajinikanth) is her ardent fan. Johnny is a con-man who does petty-thefts (only on the greedy ones) to close the loan taken by his father. Johnny never misses Archana's concerts and she notices this. A tender love develops between the two, but Johnny is guarded in accepting Archana's love due to his not-so-clean background.

But one day Johnny accepts the love of Archana when she proposes to him. Meanwhile, Vidyasagar (Rajinikanth), a barber, lives a lonely life with his assortment of pet animals. He falls for Bhama (Deepa) another loner and they both plan to marry.

Vidyasagar notices his lover's infidelity and kills her in rage. Knowing about his look-alike Johnny and knowing that he is wanted by the police, he tries to pass on the murder charge to him. Both of them are chased by police, Johnny hides in a forest, and Vidyasagar tries to pass of as Johnny by taking refuge in Archana's house.

Archana gets hurt by the curt behavior of Vidyasagar(in the guise of Johnny) and she is confused on the same. Finally, Vidyasagar realizes his folly and unites the lovers by getting caught in the police, taking responsibility of Johnny's crimes included.
