Director and Actor Rajamarajan: It was as director
that Ramarajan entered the film Industry. But he donned the grease paint in his
second film. Acting took most of his time and direction took a back seat. And
there was a time when almost all his films, coming in quick succession tasted
success at the box office. "Karakattakaran" was his biggest hit. "Gramarajan"
they called him, for all his films had a rustic base. Then the actor-director
stepped into politics, was rarely seen on celluloid, the couple of films he did
not finding favour with the audience. Suddenly there were no takers. Now, the
actor-director returns in a dual 'avatar' as hero and director. Produced under
his own banner Kanna Cine Arts, the new film is titled 'Seeri Varum Kaalai'. And
teamed with him is Abita of "Sethu" fame.
Ramarajan plays Kalaiyan a mechanic who repairs pump sets in the village. One
