Happy Birthday Kamal


Learned first from Aparna’s blog that today, November 7, is Kamal’s birthday. Heartfelt birthday wishes to the one true all-rounder in Tamil cinema; the man without whom we wouldn’t have had Naayagan, Hey Ram, Indian, Thevar Magan, Aboorva Sagodharargal, Moondraam Pirai, Salangai Oli or any of those other movies that took Tamil cinema a small step up and made its fans, a bit more proud.

Tamil cinema is lucky to have you Kamal… Wish you a Very Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Velu Naaykarey!!

the one true all-rounder...

sure...also

THE best actor, by a mile...

i dont just adore kamal...i almost worship him! to me, he's like the ultimate actor, capable of bringing every emotion to life with his majestic voice, his unique facial expressions and of course, not to forget, his various facets like graceful dancing and inimitable comic timing...

in addition to the movies on your list, my other favs are Mahanadhi, Punnagai Mannan, Guna and Avargall...

Salut, Kamal Sir!

After no new posts thro' out yesterday(well, almost), I came to protest today and here you are 'pottu thakkifying'!!

vc/raju, that was truly amazing. a big salute to u guys for that job! i was halfway thro getting the movie names when i saw your responses and i hadn't gotten even half of what u 2 did...

rekhs, pretty amazing list. there r a couple both vc and raju didnt get(#19, #21). sollidunga :)

sbasu, i think ram asked the same question on a post a while back and we got a pretty exhaustive list :)

Thanks Balaji for reminding me about my favorite actor's Birthday.!

He is a great actor no doubt about it.!!

rekhs, AMAZING list. vc/raju - that was great. i knew some of it but not all.

#19 sounds more apt for a Rajini's song than Kamal's. Don't know the movie.

#21 is it Vikram?

SK

Wow, an interesting list. You guys got it pretty much except #19 and #21.

#21 was a little difficult. It was from the movie 'Sattam'. Song - 'Nanbane enadhu uyir nanbane...'

I am surprised that nobody could get #19 - It was the legendary 'Ezhu swarangalukkul ethanai raagam' from Aboorva Raagangal.

mav, isnt it ezhu swarangalukkul ethanai PAADAL?

veejay,
vc, raju and mav are all talking about the list of kamal songs posted by rekhs above. the lines r from 24 different songs from kamal films. they got bunched together in rekhs comment but vc's answer post has the lines separated :)
