Chinna Vathiyar is a 1995 Tamil Science-fiction Comedy film, directed by Singeetam Srinivasa Rao. The film stars Prabhu Ganesan in a dual role, Kushboo, Ranjitha, Goundamani, Senthil and Nizhalgal Ravi. Music is by Ilaiyaraaja and lyrics by Vaali.
The unquenchable thirst of Professor Chandramouli (Prabhu) in conducting research on soul transfer is the story of 'Chinna Vaadhyaar'. Chandramouli is so obsessed with his research that he even practises celibacy, much to the annoyance of his wife Janaki (Khushboo). His lookalike Aravind (Prabhu again), studying in the same college, accidentally learns the secret and both of them mutually decide to get into each other's body. Chandramouli lives as Aravind and vice versa. Many comical errors take place and both decide to come back into their respective bodies. Baba ('Nizhalgal' Ravi), has many a score to settle with both Professor Chandramouli and his college mate Aravind. He sees Aravind get into the body of a dead cat and uses this opportunity to get inside Aravind's body. The atrocities Baba carries out under the guise of Aravind makes the professor realize the dangers of science. He feels sorry that he did not think of the consequences.
