TN Balu, died halfway through while he was directing Shankarlal. Who completed the film?

Kamalhasan ( along with cinematographer N K Viswanathan)


  • I guess TN Balu's previous movie with Kamal was 'Sattam en Kayil'. Isn't it Prakash? Sankarlal was released in 1981 or 82 in Sathyam. The movie had a few terrific songs by Raja anna. 'Ilangiliye onnum vilangiliye' by SPB and Jaanu maami, the pick of the lot!

  • Satheesh : I have never been to a cinema until i was 16. so, sathyam matter theriyathu. I saw shankarlal in doordrashan. and yes Sattam En kaiyil was his previous movie with kamalhassan.

    TN balu was a master story teller. He was master behind many modern theatres movies and was the integral part of modern theatres' katha ilaka.

    Raja anna, janu maami?

    TFMle, annaavukku neRaiya pEru sonthakkaaraa pOlirukkE? :-)
