Nuggets like that remind us of a time gone by when cinema was radically different from what it is today. Not all of the films from this era have endured. You may not dare to watch many films from this year on DVD. But the presence of classics like Mahanadhi and Marupadiyum more than redeem the pervading mediocrity that plagued Tamil cinema during this year. This symptom was shared by many films from the s. None of the films had their legendary directors at their best.
In Captain Magal, actor Raja a Bharathiraja favourite in those days plays a music composer who is shot and injured when an attack is made on the life of the prime minister.
Kushboo plays a Ghazal singer Sivaranjani, who moves to Ooty, after her mother is killed by terrorists. She finds in Kesavan Mukesh an unlikely source of solace, but will their hesitant courtship fructify? The late Balachander may have wanted his message of love triumphing terror to reach the masses, but no one was willing to listen.
Kovil Kalai must be the most puzzling entry to notch up 25 years since release. P Vasu is one of those directors who asks us to digest his films with dollops of sentiment. Sathyaraj's performance as Vetrivel brought audiences in droves to the theatre. The film just appropriated the popularity of former Tamil Nadu director general of police Walter Devaram and had no references to the life of the cop.
In the title sequence of the movie, Sathyaraj delivers a line which might be a bit strange today. He says that if rowdies are allowed to roam freely, they would divide and sell the state in 25 years. With his remake of Arth, Mahendra managed to deliver a film that both critics and audiences liked. Rajinikanth was pretty active in He appeared in three Tamil movies -- Uzhaippali, Yejaman and Valli.
Kamal Haasan had a mixed year. Both Kalaignan and Maharasan were but blips in his career, but Mahanadi was a definite indication of how good a writer the actor was.
The National Award winning movie was a tearjerker directed by Santhana Bharathi with whom Kamal would frequently collaborate.
No Drinking Problem, says 'Captain' Vijayakanth To Prannoy Roy
The late Malayalam actor, Cochin Haneefa, played the antagonist and his contribution as the sleazy child trafficker cannot be taken lightly. Puthiya Mugam, starring Revathi and her husband Suresh Menon, was an unforgettable movie experience for me. The thriller with its novel and imaginative use of plastic surgery had a couple of moments that were bone-chilling. The soundtrack from Rahman continues to remain among his best. The album also showed lyricist Vairamuthu in superb form.
Bharathiraja made another movie that year and it was Kizhakku Cheemayile. I have always thought that Bharathiraja handled sentiment the best in Tamil cinema and that opinion was validated by this movie starring Vijayakumar and Radhika as inseparable siblings.
Featuring Prasanth, Anand, Heera and Anu Aggarwal, the movie traces the fate of Rs crore stolen from the government. With superb camerawork from PC Sreeram, which infused in it a spirit of adventure, the movie was welcomed by audiences and critics. Prathap was written, directed and produced by actor Arjun. We might never guess it, but Ravi Kumar went on to direct both Haasan and Rajini in many movies. It is hard to find common ground among the movies released in Selvamanithis film was considered to be one of the best crime thrillers of its time.
At the end of the year, he acted in Sathriyanproduced by Mani Ratnamabout an honest cop and a corrupt politician. This can be easily termed as Vijayakanth's best attempt at the cop role amongst the innumerable times he donned the khakhi. This is undoubtedly Vijaykanth's best film and also stands in the list of good cop films made in Tamil cinema. After the success of Pulan VisaranaiRowther decided to make another project with Vijayakanth and director R.
Selvamanititled Captain Prabhakaran It was Vijayakanth's th film, after which he earned the nickname "captain". He is the only actor from his period to have tasted a jubilee box-office hit on his th film and joined the list of actors, namely M. RamachandranSivaji Ganeshan and Jayalalithaa.
The film was a commercial success upon its release,  followed by Maanagara Kaaval and Moondrezhuthil En Moochirukkum Vijayakanth worked in movies such as Chinna Gounder This film was radically different from Vijayakanth's earlier portrayals, as he was donning the role of a soft-spoken village chieftain.
The film is remembered for Vijayakanth's underplay.
