At present he cannot ask for more out of his
career. From the small screen Lollu to the big
time Lollu with the biggest stars of Kollywood,
the giant leap has happened quite soon. The first
time he got noticed on the big screen was in Manmadhan,
then in Vallavan, along came Rendu and he was
raising quite a few laughs combining well with
the comedy king Vadivelu.
Then came the big break, in a star movie. Kreedom;
it was crucial for him to make a mark and he did
not fail to do so. That was it we guess, opportunities
have not started coming his way since. A good
performance in a star movie got him another, Azhagiya
Tamil Magan and now he has yet another biggie,
with Vikram in Kanthaswamy.
Well, he is not far from cementing his position
in Tamil cinema as one of the regulation comedians,
inevitable to a movie. Now, Vadivelu and Vivek
will have company at the top slot with one more
contender for the lead comedians spot. It is one
thing to do small comic capers and quite another
to take full responsibility of a comedy track
which can be crucial to any movie's box office
performance. With good response for his comic
acts in Ajith's latest Billa and a full fledged
lead role in director Simbu Devan's Arai En 305
il Kadavul, Santhanam is not far off from graduating
to that level.
Wishing the new Lollu specialist of Kollywood
all the best.
