Counter Mani or Goundamani as he is popularly known is one of the best comedians in Tamil Cinema. His comedy with Senthil is especially priceless. Even today television channels thrive by playing his comedy again and again on the various comedy channels. Here is the list of my favourite Goundamani films
Karagattakaran : No one can forget Karagattakaran. More than the film’s plot everyone remembers Goundamani and Senthil. The film became an all time blockbuster just for the comedy. Two comedy scenes stand out – The banana comedy and sopana sundari comedy. There is even a song in Chennai 28 2 based on this comedy.
Vaidehi Kathirundhal : All in all Azhagu Raja character from this film is epic. It is a separate comedy track which is very different from the tone of the film. Petromax light comedy from this film is a perfect example of how simple comedy can be. Just a simple question by Senthil is enough to make us roll in laughter.
Chinna Gounder : Another memorable comedy track from Goundamani – Senthil combo. Senthil plays the curious guy who comes up with weird questions. The questions evoke hilarious reactions from Goundamani as he takes Senthil to task.
Mettukudi : Kalings’s brings a smile on our faces always. As a guy who always messes up with regard to love Goundamani is top notch. He seeks Karthik’s help which leads to some hilarious situations. The letter writing scene and the flower proposal scenes are terrific laugh out loud comedy.
Nadigan : This comedy based on forgery and hiding of real identity has both Goundamani and Sathyaraj in top form as both of them pretend to be old men. The comedy just flows seamlessly as Manorama joins the fun. The puliyan Biryani scene is one of the best comedies ever as Goundamani gets cheated by Sathyaraj.
