|Manmadhan Ambu Crazy-Kamal Comedy Combination|
The cracking comedy chemistry between actor Kamal Hassan and Crazy Mohan hits again for Manmadhan Ambu Tamil movie .
The jodi has a legendary history, that had created humorous magic on the silver screen that brings only smiles to our faces.
COMEDY – in films is categorized as slapstick, screwball, satire, Anarchic, parody, romantic comedy and there is even black comedy.
But one universal thing that relates to comedy is to make people laugh. Here is one such witty person who is funny and humorous and can make people suffer from stomach pain and tears (happy) in eyes when they laugh to his comedy.
Crazy Mohan, the My-la(w)pore resident, is an exceptional dialogue/ screenplay & theater-stage play comedy writer, who had created a niche for himself as the best satire comedy writer both on stage (theater) as well in films and had created magic with the blockbuster comedy generic films he had worked with the legendary Kamal Hasan.
The duo (Kamal-Crazy Mohan) is such that they made “Comedy - a serious Business”.
Once when a person initiates a conversation with the ever witty Crazy Mohan, one would forget his/her own worries and laugh our lungs out. His funda for life is simple and so is his writing which makes it special and captivating.
Their combo (Kamal-Crazy Mohan) goes way back in the year 1989 with a serious drama Apoorva Sagotharargal. Next in 1990 with yet another comedy-cum serious drama was a Telugu remake, Indiran-chandiran.
The movie that created box-office success and a magic run of more than 120 days in many theaters was the stupendous success of Micheal Madana Kama Rajan that kick started their duo.
Next in league was Sathi Leelavthi in the year 1995 that saw the success with comedy artistes in main leads, except for Kamal and Arvind. Interestingly Kamal also made a sentimental guest appearance in Magalir Mattum (1995) for which the screenplay was written by Mohan, which is also the production of Rajkamal Films International.
It made people to sit and take a notice at the movies released in their combination. A tremendous success followed with movies like Avvai Shanmugi (1996), Kathala Kathala (1998) though not a success was highly appreciated for the comic timing developed between the artistes.
From 2002 to 2004 with the list of movies like Thenali, Panchathanthitram, Pammal K.Sambandam, Vassol raja MBBS the producers laughed their way to the bank and the audience to the theaters. The duo created a stir in the box-office with the number of success rates they achieved in their long relationship and still continues to do so.
One can never forget the 'Imean what I mean', 'Tirupu' comedy and the versatile performance as the cook Kameshwaran his Palakad accent or the timely one liners of Raju or even the scenes between Late Nagesh as Avinash and Madan & Kameshwaran in Micheal Madana Kama Rajan. It seems to the viewer that the script is solely written for Kamal looking at his effortless performance, that one would enjoy to watch the actor perform at ease.
The movies may be old, but the comedy is still fresh among the minds of comedy lovers who enjoys subtle,no-nonsense comedy that doesn't hurt anyone.
In the recent times, the “Munnadi Pinnai” from Panchathanthiram was a comedy track that was not even missed by the kids. The versatility not only shows in the performance of Kamal Hassan as an actor/performer in the character written for him but also the various dialects and forms of languages written by the writer (Crazy Mohan) for each of the character played in the movie.
Be it the Srilankan Tamil slang in Thenali, the four different characters in Micheal Madana Kama Rajan, and the five language based characterization in Panchathanthiram, accolades are in abundance for the fantastic writer, Crazy Mohan.
Though Dasavatharam was the last movie seen that the ever joke cracking duo Crazy Mohan and Kamal Hassan worked together, lot many fans are awaiting to see a full fledged comedy like their previous films and were eager to hear another project.
Now with the announcement of Manmadhan Ambu, Crazy Mohan and Kamal Hassan have joined together to write the screenplay and dialogues for the movie.
