Evanescent Thoughts

Nagesh …

with one comment


Tamil cinema’s most versatile comedian passed away few days back . I was  a big fan of him , not to say the millions of tamilians who have seen him act in more than 1000 films. I never knew when i became a fan , nor do i remember if i wasnt anytime  . But he was one who could almost get you onto floors with his great timing and expression of comedy .

Neither was he exceptional comedian but a classic actor who could almost do any role with perfection. Kamal and nagesh shared a bond more than mutual admirers . Nagesh would appear in most of kamal works and few of them were classics ( the villain role in aboorva sagotharargal , MMKR , nammavar , Magalir mattum ) .

Its ironic that the man who made tamil cinema fans roll on floor with laughter  won his only national award for a his expression after the traumatic suicide of his daughter ( nagesh’s) . Watch it over here  and it sure deserver more than just a national award . Some time we miss things so much that we wish we never missed them .

Though he is no more , his works make him feel he is still around us . Only very few people can earn somthing like that.

  1. Such a great actor. I saw the video once again. One can’t just stop crying seeing the video. There were also equivalently good scenes in ethir neechal and server sundaram. May be rest in peace.
