I am writing this as a reply to one of the comment I received for the column “Dear Shankar, Sun Pictures and Super Star” this column also titled as “Endhiran II is a must”. In the above mentioned article I had written

“If you cannot do, then who can?

Of course Ulaga Naayagan will always do everything and anything to take Tamil Cinema to the next level. (He is a paguththarivaalan- Atheist who always looks to trounce the trinity (concept).”

One of the behindwoods visitors questioned the ability of Kamal Haasan in taking Tamil cinema to the global level. Here is my reply to that visitor and others who suspect Kamal

Kamal Haasan has already taken Tamil cinema to
Endhiran
the global level. He need not prove his ability now or anymore. Below are just a couple of examples.

Nayagan was chosen as one of the “All time Best 100 Movies” in the world by Time Magazine. The list was released in 2005. The panelists considered movies which are released since 1923. Does it not show that Kamal was already part of taking Tamil cinema to a global level? Of course the credit goes to Director Mani Ratnam, Ilayaraja and the whole team but at the same time we cannot ignore the pivotal role played by Kamal for the success of Nayagan.

It is known to everybody that India is submitting a movie every year to Academy Awards (Oscars) in the “Best Foreign Language Film” Category. It is Kamal who is the hero of most number of films which are submitted by India for the Academy Awards. Those movies are Nayagan, Devar Magan, Kurudipunal, Indian and Hey Ram.

Does it not show that Kamal has contributed significantly in taking not just Tamil Cinema but Indian Cinema to a global level? Kamal has already proved why he is Ulaga Naayagan but he is yet to get worldwide recognition. .

Kamal planned Marudanayagam and Marmayogi targeting global audience. But unfortunately due to financial constraints those movies did not take off. He is a man who always thinks dreams and acts for cinema. (He can talk cinema, walk cinema, laugh cinema) He lives for cinema. He is the most versatile actor in Indian Cinema. All he need is some financial support. When he gets that, the whole world will see his movies, recognize him, appreciate him and will call him as Ulaga Naayagan.

I take this opportunity to say “Advance birthday wishes Ulaga Naayagan”.
