One of three of Mani Ratnam’s classic, epic movies of the 1980s, and 1990s is the 1986 Mouna Ragam which means the Silent Symphony and stars Mohan, Revathi, Karthik & the very funny V. K. Ramasamy. It is a love story that has 2 parts –one is a current that tells of a forced marriage and another is a flashback tragic love story. Image source: Amazon.
Nostalgic Tamil Song 101: Sivaji Ganesan As The Hardworking Babu & The Beautiful Idho Endhan Deivam 1971
A screengrab from the 1971 Tamil movie, Babu starring the late Nadigar Thilagam, Sivaji Ganesan and a very young Sri Devi. It was pointed out that the first of October was Sivaji Ganesan’s birthday and had he lived, he would have been 94 years old this year.
Sivaji Ganesan passed away on 21st July 2001 at an age of 72 and by then had acted in some 288 movies; a majority of it has been in Tamil movies.
There has always been a showcase of Kamal Haasan’s talents in whichever movies that he is involved whether it is an aspect of storytelling, acting, dancing, singing or direction and to play the romantic, tragic hero in his movies, Kamal Haasan always has that look that simply melts the heart of anyone who watched him in tense moments.

I did a review of the 2022 Vikram Tamil movie back in June 2022 but somehow I feel the final scene when the feared drug lord Rolex comes to meet the gang needs further analysis as there are so many things happening in the background. Mind you that Sandhanam played by the brilliant Vijay Sethupathi was so afraid of Rolex that he even killed others without any hesitation. Image source: Times of India.
After watching one of the worst movies of the year for 2022, I had higher expectations of the latest Kamal Haasan movie, Vikram written and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj who also did the excellent Kaithi which I rated the best movie of 2019. Another reason for the high expectation is that it is a Kamal Haasan movie which means perfection from the master himself. Poster source: IMDB.
