being reduced to caricature-like villainous roles. People seem to have forgotten his brilliant portrayal of an impoverished silk weaver in
, a part he infused with pain and tragedy.Prakash Raj's latest, Un Samayal Arayil (In Your Kitchen) - which comes after his singularly moving performance in the father-daughter relationship story, Abhiyum Naanum - is a remake of the Malayalam movie, Salt N' Pepper. As a 45-year-old bachelor archaeologist, Prakash Raj's Kalidasan is wonderfully believable.
