My Year of Prakash Raj

Some people spend a year
cooking Julia Child's recipes, or following all of the rules in the Bible, or reading books by people who spent a year doing something. My quest is to watch the 200-some films of South Indian character-actor-extraordinaire, Prakash Raj. (It'll probably take more than a year... and I'll post about some Prakash-less films here as well.)

Prakash Pix: "With Little Kids and Babies"

I'm always impressed with the naturalistic interactions that Prakash Raj pulls off when he's in a scene with little kids and babies. A few favorite moments:
Kotha Bangaru Lokam
Sri Anjaneyam
Kannathil Muthamittal
Abhiyum Naanum

Even the bad guys have good chemistry with kids:

Sneham Kosam


  1. Very nice compilation here of Prakash with the kiddos. What will be your next theme? Do you have him with weapons yet?
    All the best!

  2. OH! Prakash and KIDS! this is too good. Damn, every time you update, I'm like "I need more Prakash in my life". I need to get onto that. Like, yesterday!

  3. @Sita-ji, oh, don't worry, I've got Prakash and machetes, guns, etc. I think Prakash in various police uniforms may be next.

    @Ness-all you need to do is get 5 Telugu films to watch. Prakash Raj will be in 4 of them.

  4. Prakash is a very versatile actor, bringing out a certain humanity even in his villainous roles. I love his talent at working with children, particularly in such films as Abhiyum Naanum, in which he plays the father.

  5. prakash is more than anything in my ardent fan of his since Duet....never missed any of his movies.....he's giving superb movies from his home're always my hero..Prakash
