Which tamil novel by Indira Parthasarathy won the Sahitya acadmi award in 1977?

Kuruthipunal

No connection to kamal's movie which is based on Govind Nihlani's Droh Kaal. But I think Kamal was inspired enough to use the title

  • Sure, he was! Kamal Haasan loves making titular references to films/literature/pop-culture.

  • Copying would be a more apt term! Be it titles, stories, scenes, techniques... Kamal is a master stealer dealer! (Of course, so are many others).
