Murder, Mystery and Fear – Well, how would be categorize them into a genre. Maybe a supernatural thriller or suspense movie? But Kamal Haasan holds a special mention for taking them into the route of ‘Black Comedy’ in Tamil cinema, which was somewhat a rarity till then. Phobia is regarded as the most essential concept for psychological based thrillers, but it became a much different concept with ‘Thenali’. On the other hand, ‘Panchathanthiram’ was something about covering up a murder laced with twists and turns. But it was very much narrated with intense humour play. What came during the interim was ‘Pammal K Sambandham’, which was about a doctor placing watch inside a patient carelessly during surgery. She attempts to entice the hero and perform a surgery to get back the watch. This could have been narrated with a much intense thrill mode, but got it dosage of humour. In this context, it’s Kamal Haasan who always proves a winner with different styled experiments.
