In Remembrance

How many movies have i seen of yours, where i always used to feel it is not the actor, but the character talking, singing, dancing ?
You will always be missed Chevalier Shivaji Ganesan.

True there are instances where you have been criticised for overacting, but look at your retort: "What is acting? It means doing something that is not natural. So then where is the question of overacting? When your mother dies, what do you do? You shout Amma (mother) and cry, don't you? Your instant reaction is to cry out loud. Not sit quietly covering your eyes with your hands. That's exactly what I do in my films."

Who can forget your roles in Andha naal, Devar magan, thillana mohanambal to name a few ?
This is a well written piece !

    Apprecaition of arts or more so having a judgement about arts is more of an emotional release than a pragmatic realization!!!

    Wonder what influenzed your judgement in this case?

    Forgot to add-people appreciate, or value a work of art when they cant give any conscious or rational reason for their preference. So how on earth an appreciation which controls the judgement of a person emotionally be taken into account?
