A award is an award which has been given for his valuable contribution to the Indian Cinema even if he got late but most important is the he has received it. Let's cheer for him.
Each of his film is a big epic by itself. The way he moulds the actors into the character is excellent. Everybody thought that his movie Sankarabharanam will be a failure. But after seeing the movie everybody saluted him for the way he has treated the subject and the music and the songs. Really a film immortal.
Sagara Sangamam is also master piece where his directional skills are touching the sky. Especially in a song where Kamal Haasan performed a dance on the well he has exhibited the skills to the highest level.
His movies are exemplary. He gives utmost importance to lyrics and music. He will never leave the artist without getting the best out of him.
10% of his movies got national awards which will speak about his caliber.
The award got value by offering it to Kala Tapasvi Sri Visvanath.
