Actor-filmmaker Visu is certainly one of the legends of cinema. He made movies that turned cult classics and most importantly, he was a great friend to many of the actors out there.
His beloved friend, Sivakumar shared a note for Visu.
“Anbu Visu, after K Balachander, he is the one to have showcased the lives of middle-class city dwellers on stage and screen through his sharp dialogues. Samsaram Adhu Minsaram, Manal Kayiru – these two films are enough for the world to understand you.”
He continued in Tamil, “Arattai Arangam… Akila ulaga pugazhai ungalukku serthadhu. Tamizhagathin mukkiya nagarangalukkellam padaieduthhu kukkiramathil ulla ezhai manava manavigalin ekkangalai, valigalai velipadutha vaipalittha pala perukku vaazhvil oliyettri veitheergal. Makkalin Vaazhkkai porattangalai ratthamum sadhaiyumaga padaippugalil velipadutthiya neengal thani manidha vaazhkaiyilum arogiyathukkaga kadaisi nimidam varai thalarathu poradineergal. Iraivan viditha manuda vaazhvai kadaisi manithuli varai vaazhndhu vittergal.”
“Mannil pirandha manidhan oru naal indha mannai vittu pirindhe aagavendum. Ungaukku kadaisi mariyadhai seiya kooda mudiyathapadi Coronavirus echcharikkaiyal bus payanam,rain payanam, vimana payanam thavirkumbadi doctor-gal echcharihullanar.

Andha kurai illamal, makkal kadaisi tharunathil ungalodu irundhargal endru arigiren. Boomiyil vaazhndha kaalam varai arthamulla vaazhvu. Makkalukku payanoadum vaazhvu vaazhndhu vittai. Poi vaa nanba. Adutha piraviyil sandhippom.”
