The Maverick Kamal Haasan and his Innovations in Kollywood

Kamal Haasan doesn’t turn 58 today but rather has completed close to six decades in the industry. No man’s resume is going to show 58 years of experience in an industry but this man’s does!

Kamal is the pioneer of Indian cinema along with his mentor directors like Balachander, Bharathiraja and Balu Mahendra. The young boy from Kalathoor Kannama went all the way to become such a sensational actor in Tamil cinema in his young years.

After playing many mediocre roles, he started experimenting in 16 Vayanthilae and every film Kamal did was way ahead of its time. Sigappu Rojakal is just one of the many examples continuing with Guna, Kuruthi Punal, Aalavandhan were all technically advanced in every way. He didn’t play just an actor but was a technician himself.

Hollywood standard makeup was first introduced in films like Avvai Shanmugi, Indian and the grand Dasavatharaman with 10 different characters. Technologies like steady cam, DTS, Dolby Atmos were all introduced in Kamal’s films first produced under his Rajkamal films banner. The veteran completes 58 years in Tamil cinema today! Galatta is elated to be part of a cinema history that has Ulanayagan Kamal in it!
