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 !
