Born To Act – II

Dumb wordpress, does not allow me to add more than 3 youtube links in the same post! Cannot afford to end the post without Kamal’s transformation as Nandhakumar.

Alavanthan – A movie that went terribly wrong with screenplay and too many songs (totally uncalled for). Had it not been for some glaring glitches, this would have been a far more superior product that Kuruthi Punal (which is considered to be one of his best efforts to date). The variation he shows in dual roles (as twin brothers) he essays here stands out. And as the bald Nandhakumar, who becomes mentally unstable due to his step mothers wild treatment and the inner conflict that he battles (between God & Demon), this performance is indeed a monumental effort. A three hour movie that stands highly recommended (PLEASE KEEP THE VIDEO REMOTE CONTROL HANDY!!) watching this movie in half that time would make it a cult classic! Here’s to Nandhu 🙂

This video is a pretty violent one. For a person with split personality who is on a trip, his performance stands out!

Born To Act – I

Kamala Hassan!!! Need I say more? I for one am not someone who calls him Andavar nor am I his biggest fan, but I know, I am genuinely spellbound by his acting capabilities.

This is not a post to discuss if he is the best actor ever in the history of Indian cinema; Just a post to celebrate Kamala Hassan!
Here’s to Kamal and (meaningful) Indian cinema!

His first movie.

Anbae Sivam. To this day, I am yet to see an Indian movie that can come anywhere close to this one. Phenomenal stuff, but unfortunately this was a BO dud.
