K. Balachander’s letter to Vijay

Saturday, July 31, 2010 • Tamil Comments

‘Madrasapattinam’ movie has enthralled audiences from all classes and masses. Even the experts and trend setters in Tamil cinema are in awe of this magnificent period film.

In a letter to its director Vijay KB has heaped much praise on the young director. KB says Attenborough's Gandhi was awe-inspiring. Mangal Pandey was authentic. Laagan was adventurous. Your ‘Madrasapatinam’ is simply astonishing!

He goes on to say ‘Madrasapatinam’ is a film in which the whole is somehow much bigger, better and more beautiful than the sum of all its individual, significant parts!

On Vijay KB Sir has said “Vijay, I hear you have a cinema pedigree but I really do not know where you come from. BUT YOU ARE HERE TO STAY AND TAKE INDIAN CINEMA AHEAD.”.
