One of the Best performances on Silver Screen ever
14 April 2015 | by arunsomasundaram1See all my reviews

Gauravam movie has one of the best display of acting ever on a silver screen by none other than the Master Actor Sivaji Ganesan. IF one watches the movie, any one will agree thats not a over statement at all. Sivaji portrays the Character of Rajnikanth with such talent and ease. Its easy to dismiss the acting as over acting or just histrionics. But those are ill informed conclusions and observations. If one carefully observes the performance, Sivaji not just conveys the dialogues in high tones and majesty(which is actually a stage technique he employs when necessary to keep the viewers attention) but facial expressions showed by Sivaji in each scenes, majesty, compassion, anger, fear of failure, concentration, all those emotions were subtly conveyed by the Master. Sivaji completely holds off the viewer on his performance in the last 45 minutes of the movie. Every one watching the movie should have felt unconsciously that they shed a drop of tears in their eyes. Thats Whats is called Mastery. Just watch this movie for the Masters talent in full display here.
