The new version comprises of actor/filmmaker Samuthirakani’s scenes in which he learns more about Kamaraj by visiting the place he lived in T Nagar, Chennai.
The biographical film which has been directed by Balakrishnan is a sincere effort to bring the selfless leader to life again.
The film starts with the young age of Kamaraj and neatly depicts the important events that happened in the legend’s life.
The flawless narration showcases Kamaraj 's childhood, growth as a politician, prison life, reform measures, his influence on national politics and finally his emergence as a kingmaker.
Richard Madhuram, who had played the role of the noble leader, has expressed a subtle and realistic performance. MS Bhaskar’s dubbing has added more value to Richard’s acting and the lead actor can be appreciated for his good work.
Balakrishnan’s direction, Rengaswamy’s cinematography and ‘Maestro’ Ilaiyaraja’s composition serve as three huge pillars for the film.
In other words, ‘Kamaraj’ is an earnest effort to enlighten the present generation about the life history of a simple and selfless kingmaker who did each and everything only for the well- being of his people.
