    and one more thing, remember mudhal mariyaadhai's "enakkoru unmai therinjaaganum?" he plays Kamal's unforgiving dad.

    ah ok

    Guess the movie sounds interesting.
    I am sure how the climax would be, since its an INDIAN MOVIE, with INDIAN VALUES (ateast values decades back )

    NEELAGIRI EXPRESS

    Cast: Jaishankar, Cho, Vijaya Nirmala, Vijaya Lalitha, Asokan, Ramadass, VS Raghavan, etc.
    Lyrics: Kannadhan
    Music: TK Ramamoorthy
    Story & Screenplay: Cho

    The trailer was awesome and the Agatha Christie fan in me was expecting a plot along the lines of Orient Express. Movie started suspenseful enough with Sabapathy (VS Raghavan) being shadowed after having purchased jewelry worth Rs50,000 onboard the Neelagiri Express from Madras to Coimbatore. Sharing the same room is Ravanan (Cho) and a mystery girl Kalavathy. She takes him off the train to have food at Arokanam and then purposely makes him lose the train and disappears. In the meantime, Sabapathy is murdered and Ravanan becomes the prime suspect. CID Inspector Shankar takes the case and realizes that Ravanan is a naïve innocent party and begins investigations. How the case is solved is told in the next two hours. Poobathy’s brother in law (Ramadaoss) is made to look as the chief suspect, but you know how it will end.

    As typical of crime movies of those days, there is the mystery man in hat, whose face is not shown. Rather the camera lowers to show him stamping out the cigarette. Of course there is the sub-villain – Asokan here – who is bald and wears an eye patch to boot.

    TK Ramamoorthy stumbles through the movie with typical ear shattering music. The theme music sounds like the new song oru nayagan udhayamaagiraan! (You know who is the thief. ) Barring one, all the songs are not familiar.

    1. In the train college students sing vaalibam oru velli thattu – TMS & LRE
    2. At the Kalavathy Aalayam, two dancers perform to the only popular song, thiruthani muruga thennava thalaiva – Soolamangalam Rajalakshmi & PS (A very young Sri Vidya appears as one of the dancers.)
    3. Jaishankar and his lover (yes there is one but with very limited role) sing naan kalaignanalla unnai silaiyaakka, melodious and sung by TMS with humming by LRE.
    4. Cho gets to dress up as a woman in the fantasy dance number kalyaana pennai konjam munnum pinnum paaru by PS and LRE.
    5. The final song is a typical cabaret song by LRE, kadavul madhuvai kangalil aada vaiththaan.

    Neelagiri Express is barely interesting and the only positive point are the jokes by Cho, who has the best lines and gives an able performance Mr. Bean like.

    Itheleyum CID Shankar peera? Wonder how many films he did with that name...but I understand they are not related. How nice if it was a series.

    Is there anything Tamil in its appeal?
