Year 2014 is just 1 week to complete and within that period, it has taken KB with it....Great loss to Tamil cinema, great loss to theatres........Whenever you think of KB sir his viboodhi clad face and his warm smile just strikes you!!


Kavitha in Aval oru thodarkathai....Sindhu in Sindhu bairavi......Kalki in kalki......kannamma in Agni saatchi.....Angayarkanni and LKA malam in Unnal mudiyum is great!!!


I love the way he showed his female characters.....Sujatha and Saritha were too lucky to have worked with him in many movies and they lived their roles in each of their movies!! Even small character of Fathima babu in Kalki movie will move you!! That was the power of characterization he makes.....


Server Sundaram, Ethir neechal just showed KB sirs confidence on Nagesh Sir!! No more words to describe their companionship!!


Thillu mullu is another movie which will bring you tears of joy.....even if you telecast 10 times in a single day, many of us will watch it for the trio - Thengai Srinivasan, Sowkar Janaki amma and our super star!!


Super star and super actor, though attained great heights, are still students of KB sir and whenever they are shown with KB sir, you can watch them very closely and their respect towards his teacher/mentor!!


Music played a major role in his movies and his hits with MSV sir, Ilayaraja sir and ARR are known to everyone...Saxaphone/Kadri Gopalnath ji became famous in carnatic/classical world only after Duet...and needless to mention ARR opened his cine account under KB sirs production!!!


Who will forget the songs made by KB-Raja combo??? punnagai mannan, sindhu bairavi, puthu puthu arthangal, manathil urudhi vendum...........count is small but the impact is huge!!!


He created his mark in chinna thirai as well....Started with Rayil snegam (that opening song is still afresh) and created numerous characters in TV..premi, sahana, anni are just a sample...


May his soul rest in peace!! RIP KB sir!!!
