Kavithalaya Krishnan

The Hindu has an article on him. He is one of my favorite actors. I know he has acted in many K.B movies. But if I were to pick his top 3 roles it would be

1. 'Lift Man' Krishnan in Anjali. Small but Sweet Role.
2. Has the 'eri karai mele poravale pon mayile' raagam argument with the Judge in Sindhu Bhairvi. He wins.
3. His role as tailor "Baba Rao" in Crazy's Here is Crazy is legendary.

It almost feels like he has been somewhere on screen ever since I started watching T.V

Sindu Bairavi scene is a clear winner! For a man of his talent, he has acted in many a useless role as an Uppan, Suppan or Govindan!

I saw some TV serials and movies which are dubbed to telugu. Great actor. But I confused with this link where it wrongly matched photoes and names.

His tribute to KB in the article is heart warming. He's a classy guy. I have liked the characters he's portrayed in movies.
Nice post. Short and sweet, but has a lot of meaning. Kudos.

I have been a regular visitor at your blog for sometime now. Was reading one of your previous post single serving friend and that was really touching. Wonder why you disabled comments there. The last thing you say or do before you bid good bye is sooo treasured by you.

Now its my turn to talk about being a friend of a celebrity.;-) ok, ok, he's my father's friend.

Venkat said...

he's down to character roles in soaps now..

The entire Crazy troupe had some wonderful actors..

Would you know if there are DVDs sold on Crazy, Mouli and Shekars earlier dramas ?

Crazy's current venture in Jaya looks like a condescendment..looks like he has run out of ideas..:(

Hawkeye said...

sunita,

did not want to open it for comments at all. it was personal and for reasons i cant explain very well now - opening it up for comments didnt seem very right.

Hawkeye said...
