M R Radha rocks...
15 June 2009 | by elametlySee all my reviews

MR Radha,one of the finest actors of tamil cine industry, shines with his trademark dialogue delivery,body language and excellent acting.I wonder how he did this role in 1950s.Vivek copied his style of comedy and became a big comedy actor in 2000s.But MR radha did it a long time ago.Don't know why he didn't act in main roles in his further films.I heard he won't mug-up any dialogues, he will speak whatever comes in his mind.What a brilliance?.See the film you will understand about him. Even if you see this film 50 years later you will burst-out with laughter.Though many films became hit,only a few films will remain in mind for a long period,this is certainly one of them.

Watch it when you feel bore,then you will become tired (of laughing).
