An Early Role

Published by at 11:33 pm under Review,Tamil Cinema


Actor Marimuthu has been pretty busy recently with good roles in films like Yaman and Kodi. He has become a solid, dependable character actor and is a quiet actor with a unique voice and dialog delivery.

I was watching Vaali recently. In the clip below, where Vivek walks into the camera shop to get a picture of Sona, the actor who walks inside (after Vivek says he wants a passport photo) is Marimuthu, isn’t it? The actor’s Wikipedia page doesn’t list his early acting credits but it does mention that he worked as an assistant to S.J.Surya. So I’m guessing the director gave him a walk-on role in his debut film.

    Nice eye, bb. I’ll bet good money it is him.

    Thanks :) I was pretty surprised at how he jumped out at me when I saw him for just a few seconds. Showed me how unique his voice is since I couldn’t see his face clearly either.
