MYSELF & TAMIL CINEMA!!


Well...a nice topic to discuss...
Start muzic(hee hee see the influence!!lol!)
First things first..
let me begin my list frm 1920-30..
*"kraadhgaa!chandaalaa!panjamaa paadhagaa!!!!"
recognise these words?????
yes!am talkin about those heroines of yesteryears....
kundavaais,mohanaas,rambaais,pushpaas.....ya those wer their names....
the thing is tat all the female characters of those movies look alike...
and their expressions...man!!!!full time comedy evn in the most horrifyin or sad scenes of the movies...
one cant find out whether they r laughin or cryin!!!!
hats off to them all!

*"anbe,kanne,kaniyamudhe!!!!!en sendruvittai selvame!!!!"
this must hit u somewer...come on!!
am talkin abt the heroes of 1920s and 30s..
the style gurus!!!
wit javaadhu(or watevr)bein applied...
kumkum on forehead..jippa..dhothi..
and....the funky JILPA THALAI!!!
these wer their style statements..
2days youth hav to be rewakened by singin"jilpa kaatungadaa"...wat a shame tat we forgot these forerunners of style!!?

*"ayya veetula amma sonnaanga naa PAGUDARU(adhaan pa powder!)pota romba alaaga irupenaam!"
recognize this person??
he is supposed to be the comedian of 1930s!!!!
wit none other than himself and his pair laughin on the screen..this man was cald the comedian!!!
he is mostly a mannaaru or singaaram...

wow!unforgettable ppl!!!!

then we come to 1950-75....
*"oh my darling latha!!naa un mela uyiraye vechurken!!!"
yes!!!the hero of 50s...mostly cald baskar or shankar...
a man wit dreams...
anger arises wenevr the villain kidnaps his ladylove or mother...
the actual comedian of an otherwise serious movie!!!

*"baskar!!!neengalaa ipdi..ennaala nambave mudila...inime en moonjilaye muzhikaadheenga!!!ayyo!!!"
this is the most famous dialogue delivered by those lathas,malathis and geethas of 5os....
the heriones(cald so!!)of those movies..
wit wrapover sarees..
mountain-lik wigs on head..
lips glossin always....
eyes wit battin eyelashes..
teeth always visible!!!!
beauties of 50s.....

*"hmm(roar)...vaa...un kathalukkelaam naa bayapada maaten..enga ayya paatha sandhoshapaduvaaru(drags the heroine)"
yes...i am talkin abt the JAMBU or MAYAANDI or MALAIYAPPAN...
the most famous adiaal...
the most faithful person...
kidnaps evn the ugliest herione if he is supposed to!!!
the man of power!!!!!


*"darling yaaru ivan...inga enna panra?"
JALAJA...the "set-up" of the villain..
glamourous..
seems cruel..
ultimately helps the hero(cos she always seems to hav a soft corner towards him!lol!)

then came the most famous goundamani-senthil duo...
the best comedy anyone can give!!!!
they started the business of changin the way ppl speak...
"naaye,muttagose thalaya,nari moonji,odi poidu,kadichupuduven,penaathaadha"etc..etc.. came into usage..and is still bein used...
legends of comedy....

80s was a period of stereo type heroes playin angry young men..
heroines wer glam dolls runnin aroun the trees wit the heroes...
nothin much was attractive..
but tat was the time feel-good movies started to sprout......

from 80s..till date..
my all time favourite is RAJINIKANTH....THALAIVAR...
man of style...
man of the ppl!!!!!
he is btr knon as SUPER STAR!!!
man......he rocks always...

then comes KAMALHASSAN...
the abode of talents...
unlucky star wit extremely gr8 potentials...
though he doesn hav a good reach wich he deserves hes always listed in the golden page of tamil history!!!

tamil cinema then had various characters wich started to become unique in their own way....
but suddenly a new trend of KUTHU songs and punch dialogues has arrived...it is spoilin the creativity and is considered to be the only flaw of the present tamil cinema..
everyone wants to mak a rajini outta themselves...
but they r endin up to bcom another ramarajan ultimately!!!!!!

the other notable personalities in tamil cinema who hav always made me laugh:
vijaya.t.r
ramarajan
pandian(pothivecha malliga mottu fame)
rajkiran
sudhakar
radhika(earliest part of her career)
mr.shivaji ganeshan(though hes a gr8 actor...he gets 90rs and acts for 900000000000000000000000000000000rs)
gemini ganeshan(kaadhal mannan hee hee)
k.r.vijaya(ultimate comedian)
kamala kaamesh(the lean lady always comin as a poor amma)
visu(the reformer!!!hee hee)
the list goes on......................

ultimately the best entertainment for any tamilian...TAMIL CINEMA!!!!!
