Duck walk.. Will there be another one, following?

Receipt of this Duck walk picture by mail, a while ago, sparked the thoughts of some wonderful BR's romantic movies within me. (BR - Bharathi Raja)

Obviously, the start of my memory walk is 'Nadodi Thendral' in which Ranjitha used to rear these many ducks. Eventhough, that movie didn't do well in the Box-office, it had a touchy tale.


Is a Better one walking behind? Posted by Hello


The Last movie from BR's camp, which I really appreciated was 'Kizhakku Cheemaiyilae' (back in early 90's) which had an impressive story & was a hit in the box-office as well. Who would hv forgotton AR.Rahman's new avatar as a rural musician for that movie?

As we know, it followed the other impressive hits of BR like 16 vaiyadhinilae, Nizhagal, Kallukkul eeram, Kizakae pogum rail, Niram maraadha pookal, Alaigal oaivathilai, Mann vaasanai, Mudhal mariyadhai, Vedham pudithu, Kadalora Kavithaigal.

Eventhough he made 'n' no. of other movies like Kodi parakuthu, Captain magal, Tamizhselvan, Taj mahal, Anthi manthaarai, Kadal pookkal, Eera nilam, Kangalal kaidu sei, he didn't impress me that well.

Now, it seems he is concentrating more into Cinema politics & the new TV Channel started by the related associations. After so many years of diversion, will he ever come out with a better movie? We don't know. If so, we expect that it will be another rural classic.

En Iniye Damil Makkaley!
I think BR is busy promoting his son Manoj.

Even if BR stands upside & down, it may be difficult for him to bring his son up in the HEROES world.

See the queue up in the heroes list, after Manoj's entry. (Simbu, Dhanush(!!), Jayam Ravi, Bharath, Ravi Krishna...)

Think his period is over..

I heard that of late, he makes lot of casteist remarks in the South. All this from a man who gave 'Vedam Pudidhu' & 'Alaigal Oivadhillai'. hmm.. ellam oorukku ubadesam.

Last heard that Manoj has given up acting and now pursuing direction. God save us.

As the would-be founder of Manoj Rasigar mandram, I strongly oppose the views that my hero has quit. He is starring in a new movie where he will be the hero with no face ( like Clint - a man with no name ) and somebody dubbing for him.

His Kangalal Kaidhu Sei was a major disaster. Couldnt bear 5 minutes of that movie. Like Chakra says, I also think his time is over. And I dont think Manoj has any future as an actor.
