Veteran movie actor-comedian Nagesh passed away peacefully this week. This is a massive and irreparable loss to the the Tamil Cinema. If Sivaji and MGR left their legacies behind and if Kamal and Rajini are making their own, its not an understatement to say that Nagesh is in the same class and has left an even deeper impact. He starred in over 1000 films, mostly Tamil, and made a brilliant debut as Server suntharam in 1964. He was moulded in to an all time great by the likes of Balachander and Srithar. Although Nagesh flowed with abundance of talent, it is only the likes of these stalwarts who made the best use of him and made him into not just a top class comedian but a great actor who could star in sensitive and emotional roles. We will not see another like Nagesh. Although he leaves us behind, he is an evergreen and his contributions and memorable roles will live forever in our memory.
