Dancer

Thursday, January 1, 1970 • Tamil Comments

Would anybody believe that a one legged man can dance like Prabhu Deva and fight like action king Arjun? Real life is stranger than reel life. The venue was Kamraj Aarangam in Chennai. A song picturisation for `Dancer' was in progress. A tall lean boy clad in blue denims sitting on a chair got up to dance. There was a silence since the youth had only one leg. The entire audience waited for bated breath. The spotlight was on him. The music began. Choreographer Kala shouted `Start camera'. Music began and the one legged youth began to dance. The entire song was filmed without a break. He somersaulted and landed back on his one leg. He did everything that Prabhu Deva did. . As the dance was over even Kala stood stunned for a minute and forgot to say `Cut'. The entire audience and crew members gave him a standing ovation.

Director- producer Kayaar who made the first 3D film My dear Kuttichathan is always a pioneer in many ways. Recently he released Spy kids 3D using a new technology. A year back the director was the Chief Guest in a function. One of the cultural programmes was a dance number of Kutty. Kayaar asked Kutty to come over to his office. In school Kutty had an accident. Due to lack of proper treatment his limb had to be amputated. It was then that his brother an assistant choreographer taught him the nuances of dancing. "I am a self taught dancer. At first it was painful. But later on I mastered the dance. Initially I did show's free and later on I got offers to perform on stage from various sabhas. Even now during breaks I go to shows. It's my livelihood doing such shows," said Kutty.

In the film Choreographer Robert and Kanika are friends and work as one team. An ego clash erupts between Robert and Kanika publicly. Kanika swears that she will train a one legged guy and have him defeated at a contest. Robert meets the challenge with laughter. To Kanika's surprise she sees Kutty on the pavement doing a dance with one leg. Onlookers gave him loose coins for his act. Kanika trains him up to be a professional and enters him in the dance competition. The rest is predictable. Cinematography by Robert has Chinni Jayant, Delhi Ganesh, T P Gajendran, and Nirmala Periaswami in the cast. The film is produced by KR Infotainment.
