    K. BALACHANDER - GENIUS

    Have you ever come across a director touching 100 movies . its a rare phenomenon .its not so easy to cross 25 movies because one's imaginative skills and karpanai levels stays up to a maximum of 25 only.

    Even veterans like sridhar, barathiraja, bagyaraj, Mahendran , Balu Mahendra ( yesteryears )
    could not stretch their consistency beyond 30 or 40 movies .........

    I am not considering S.P.Muthuraman ( a hardcore commercial director and guys like Kaja , Ramanarayanan )

    Its not the number game only which makes an artist an all time great

    its the consitency , quality , ability to be adaptable to the changing scenario ........ which makes a person great

    K.B. ( fondly called ) has all the requisites......

    When the tamil cinema industry was going through the routine / mundane type stories, KB was bold enough to make movies like Arangetram , Thappu thaalangal , Aval oru thodar kathai, Avargal , aboorva ragangal , moondru mudichu........

    Each movie was unique .......

    Above all, it was KB who brought in 2 LEGENDARY PERSONALITIES IN THE 70S.......

    ONE BECAME ULAGA NAYAGAN ....KADHAL ILAVARASAN

    ANOTHER BECAME A SUPER STAR.......

    Shall we exchange thoughts about this genius .........

    Definitely deserves top slot amongst CREATIVE directors

    He deserves a Thread Good work Balaji !

    I admire all his movies ... they will have a message in it !
    His Yedhir Neechal and Baama Vijayam ... were excellent pieces

    His Thillu Mullu was an amazing comedy !

    Especially his Aboorva Raagangal was a true different approach

    I like his Azhagan, Sindhu Bhairavi n many more

    I think Vaanamay ellai was a good message to youth .....

    a striking message to those who try to commit suicide on seeing failures......

    the same KB showed how stupid a person is if he tries for suicide in Punnagai Mannan !

    Variety !

    Vaanamey ellai ... Ys ... That was awesome ... particularly he quoted what probs they are facing ... due to which they go to extreme step of DYING !

    But i dont understand ... many of his films have a sad ending !
