A flair for comedy
The late 70s and early 80s belonged very much to Rajni. It was during this time that he featured in classics such as Mahendran’s ‘Mullum Malarum ‘, the hugely popular ‘Johnny’ and ‘Ilamai Oonjaladugirathu’. Rajni also displayed his talent for light-hearted roles in ‘Ninaithale Inikkum’ in which he teamed up with Kamal Haasan, and showed off his superb comic skills in Balachander’s ‘Thillu Mullu’. The best of his films are watchable even today.
