if our padmashree dr.kamal hassan had been in hollywood he'd be collecting an oscar every year...unfortunately he is in a country / state which consists mostly of frontbenchers who enjoy and worship actors who indulge in gimmickry and silly 'ishtyle'. anyway hollywood's loss is india's gain.

Saravanan said...

Yes, you are very true...He has got such big talents in him. Movies like Hey Ram can only be produced by one and only our Universal Hero. But in India people don't really know how to appreciate good movies. There are many in the list like that...He is man of my Passion when it comes to Cinema

The word cinema means involving actors whom are suppose to do acting but not "style". Style can be done in roadside if the fans of the particular actor (sorry) wishes.
Thalaivar is simply great in any form of film industry.
I wish dasavatharam a great success.
