18 thoughts on “Happy Birthday Dude !! – Kamalhassan

  1. Wow.. awesome picture. From the locale and the dress, I am guessing that this is either from the shooting location for either MMKR or Pesum Padam!

  2. From the angle from which the photo has been taken, I would say that this is during the times of “Apoorva Sagotharargal”…. This picture shows him “small” ain’t it ?

  3. And, oh btw, there are the cursory nods to the Superstar as well, in that feature. But, which reviewer can help it, these two’s careers have been interlinked forever!

  4. Happy birthday, Mr.Maverick!
    That is a lovely rare pic. Yeah I too saw the rediff page from my office pc and was a bit embarassed when i opened up the avvai shanmugi section, amidst my office crowd.
    btw, vijay tv too celebrated his b’day by telecasting one of his worst ever movies, ‘mangamma sabatham’..lol. Still I watched it, cos it was one of his few movies i had missed out. hmm..if people wonder why vijay and ajith openly bash each other in movies thesedays, watch this movie guys. the villain’s son is a rajini look alike who gets insulted and thrashed in every scene by Kamal. Kamal mouths dialogues like “Romba style pannadhe. Pinniduven”….lol..

  5. and Lazy,
    great pic man!! worth being a part of the essential MMKR collection! I seriously need some off-screen stuff when these guys made the classic.
    Now, I get reminded of memorizing the things in every MMKR poster (i.e., making a snapshot of the poster in my mind) those days…

  6. Yday there was a special program in vijay tv where the stars wished kamal on his bday. Some quotes frm superstar’s msg:
    “Most of us including me try to act in movies without straining ourselves as it is not essential for movies to run. But, Kamal makes genuine efforts for each of his movies, knowing all this.
    I am an ardent fan of Kamal. As a fan, I would like to watch kamal’s movies like “Nayagan”, “Indian”, “Devar Magan”, “Aboorva Sagotharargal” more than others.
    I sincerely look forward to “Dasavatharam” and wish it would be a hit as big as “Chandramukhi” if not bigger…”
    Thus spake Superstar…

  7. Anti, thanks for the pointer. They did a good job of mentioning some of the good ones. obviously for someone like Kamal you can’t mention all the favorites. btw, as srihari mentioned it was MMKR.

    Tambaram, 🙂 great man less words. what say ?

    Ganesh, it is from MMKR. The angle makes you think that he is short in the pic.

    Ram, As many pointed out it from MMKR. maranthupoiteengala, like me forgetting your mail 🙂

    Zero, Thanks. rare pic.

    deepak, I saw mangamma sabatham during school days in a night show. i never registered this. will catch it the next time i get to see it.

  9. Thanks for the link Maverick. But I think a similar show was shown on his birthday last year and the year before that too..:-) One thing guys. Though in quite a few occasions, rajini has talked about kamal, I have never seen Kamal praise Rajini in any tv program. Why is that?

    Lazy, neenga kandippa andha padam paathe aaganuma?

    btw, did u guys read sify’s top 5 openers link? Kamal is listed as only the 4th top opener in tamil cinema. Hope Vettayadu Vilayadu proves it wrong(When is it getting released???)
