Kadhal Desam (Land of Love) is a 1996 Tamil romance film directed by Kathir and produced by K. T. Kunjumon. The film starred Vineeth, Abbas, and Tabu in the lead roles, while S. P. Balasubrahmanyam, Vadivelu, Chinni Jayanth and Srividya played other pivotal characters. K. V. Anand was the cinematographer for the project and A. R. Rahman composed the film's soundtrack and score.

The film opened in August 1996 to positive reviews from critics and became a commercial success. The film was dubbed and released in Telugu as Prema Desam and became an equally big success. The Hindi version, Duniya Dilwalon Ki, however did not perform as well. The film was remade in Bangladesh as Narir Mon (Woman's Heart) starring Riaz (actor), Shabnur, Shakil Khan and directed by Matin Rahman, released in 2000.

In the city of Chennai traditional rivalry has always existed between the students of Pachaiyappas and Loyola colleges respectively. Karthik (Vineeth) is poor and an orphan, who studies in Pachaiyappa's College, lives in a rented room, travels by the bus, hangs out with a number of friends, and is the captain of his football team. He is also a good poet and daydreams about his dream girl.

Arun (Abbas), on the other hand, comes from a rich and wealthy family, studies in Loyola College, drives his own car, hangs out with number of friends, and is also the captain of his football team. In a nasty intercollege riot Arun saves Karthik's life. So in return Karthik lets Arun win in a soccer game because he thinks Arun can't take losses easily. Arun realizes that the victory is because of Karthik's sacrifice.

They become good friends, and they both show a good example of friendship to the others in the college road. Things were going smooth until the new girl Divya (Tabu) joins the college. Both of the guys fall in love with her, but neither of them realize that they both are in love with the same girl.

In a chain of events when they realize that both are loving the same girl,their friendship is strained and they fight with each other. The end of the movie shows whether Divya will fall in love with one of them and whether their friendship will be affected.
