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.)

Happy Birthday to Chiranjeevi and welcome to my entry in Cinema Chaat's Mega Birthday Celebration!

Prakash Raj and Chiranjeevi have appeared in 8 films together:  Hitler (1997),  Choodalani Vundi (1998), Sneham Kosam (1999), Mruga Raju (2001),  Indra (2002),  Tagore (2003), Andarivaadu (2005), and Stalin (2006). I've watched them all, and am pleased to present "A Visual Guide to 10 Secrets to Successful Film Acting, Featuring Megastar Chiranjeevi and Gesturing Star Prakash Raj."

  3. I thought I left a comment, but maybe the power of The Tearful Gaze has befuddled me. A lovely post Liz and I am happy to see Chiru in such fine company :) Temple
