I watched Majaa and felt happy. The movie wasn’t great but the artists remained intact. Should Kamal Hassan be in Vikram’s place, he would have said, be careful with him for given a chance Pasupathi would walk away with applauses.
Pasupathi the guy whom we spotted from Dhool or even in Kannathil Muthamittal is currently one the most wanted character artists in Kollywood. But thats like caging him. A natural actor like him can be used for any character/any film. Knowing this, probably Kamal wanted him to do the silly comical role in Mumbai Express after a vibrant villain in Virumandi.
In his recent interview to Ananda Vikatan[requires uid/pass], Pasupathi talks about his childhood days at Thandaiaarpet and how he was caught into this magical world of theatre acting. Pretty interesting interview where he recalls his past as roaming in streets assuming himself to be Sakalakala Vallavan Kamal. And thats when he joined Kothupattarai that brought him upto speed on theatre acting. I was surprised to know that he was one of the founders of the legendary Magic Lantern theatre group.
Next Films ? An english film where he is Piccha, a poor farmer. Then, Veyyil, Shankar’s next production directed by Vasantha Balan where Pasupathy is Munusaamy, the projector operator of Kaniappa Talkies. Shankar is also producing, I heard, a Vadivelu starrer named Imsai Arasan 23aam Pulikesi. Both Veyyil and Imsai Arasan seem pretty different. Do we have a Tamil Ram Gopal Varma with Shankar, as expected ?
I only hope Selvaraghavan would use Pasupathy for Pudupet. Wouldn’t that be a devastating combo. Watch out for Pasupathy in the coming days.
