ARS GRATIA ARTIS
Talking about one of my all time favourite movies should be easy right? Well thats not the case here. I first saw this movie when I was 12 years old and didnt understand what big fuss was about. Re-viewings would prove what a classic piece of confluence of art and emotions it was and why It was deservedly the National Award Winner.
Maestro K Vishwanath depicts the tale of of Balakrishna Bhagwathar, a dancer (brilliantly portrayed by Kamal Hassan), who goes to lengths to learn the various Indian classical dances. Whats most intersting about the movie is the way the director, Vishwanath, deals with the emotions of the poor and struggling dancer and an up and coming dancer.
Wish people out of India could also see this movie.
