K Balachander's 10 Most Memorable Movies

  • 1. Apoorva Raagangal (1975) which won three national awards is worthy to be on top, especially because it is considered to have given birth to the most recognised actors like Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth.
  • 2. Varumayin Niram Sivappu (1980): Many thought this movie was highly exaggerated, but the youngsters believed that it was pretty accurate reflection of what idealistic young men go through in India.
  • 3. Ethir Neechal (1968): One of the best movies of Balachander, its hard to leave the movie without crying. Nagesh and Madhu show their extraordinary talent in this precious three hour film.
  • 4. Maro Charitra (1978): This movie still remains as a cult classic film and arguably one of the compelling tragic love story in Tamil films.
  • Ek Duuje Ke Liye (1981): This film might seem like a conventional love story that is common in Indian films, but its disturbing ending sets it apart from all of them.
  • Pudhu Pudhu Arthangal (1989): Quite a refreshing take from K Balachander, the story of a singer's inability to deal with his possessive wife keeps the audience in gripping in their seats in this realistic tale.
  • Thaneer Thaneer (1981): This movie was screened in many international film festival and even won two national awards for its realistic depiction of rural India.
  • Iru Kodugal (1969): Another National award winning film revolving around a man who married two women not only kept the man tensed but also the audience aswell.
  • Achamillai Achamillai (1984): A story about how a well respected man's life takes a turn to corruption when he enters into politics.
  • Moondru Mudichu: Superstar Rajinikanth's early hit, with a decent cameo by Kamal Haasan is one of the best off-beat stories from those days.
