Two stalwarts of  South Indian cinema are his products – Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth.

Veteran film director K. Balachander  breathed his last yesterday evening (23.12.2014) due to age-related problems. He is 84. He left a rich legacy behind him.  In  his  marathon film career of 45 years  which was started as a screenwriter, Balachander is man behind the successful careers of so many South Indian actors and technicians.

 All his stories are weaved around middle-class families.

Apart from Tamil films, Balachander  also did some notable Telugu films like Rudraveena, Aakali Rajyam, Idi Kdha Kaadu, Maro Charithra and Anthuleni Katha which are blockbuster  movies during those times.  

His talents were recognized   by Govt. of India with Padma Shri  and he was also awarded the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award  in 2010.

This is my favourite  Telugu Song of  Director Balachander :

 May his soul rest in peace!
