Nagesh, a stellar comedian

Last Updated: Sun, Feb 01, 2009 11:40 hrs

Veteran actor Nagesh never ceased to have us in splits even till last year in Dasavatharam. As much as he had us in hysterical laughter be it his dead-man's routine Magalir Mattum or the struggling poet Dharumi in Thiruvilaiyaadal, he also moved us to tears with his moving performance in Nammavar and as Maadhu in Edhir Neechal. One can go on about the inimitable Nagesh. Here's his work over the years and the several ways in which we will remember him by.
