One of the most eminent scriptwriter of Tamil cinema has passed away. Here's what happened...
Vietnam Veedu Sundaram, very well known for his scriptwriting, acting and directing, passed away in the early hours of Saturday, 6th August, 2016 in Chennai. According to reports on the New Indian Express, the veteran Tamil personality breathed his last today morning before succumbing to a brief illness. He is survived by a wife and two daughters. With a career spanning over 40 years, Veedu Sundaram has contributed immensely to the Tamil industry and in fact, the name Vietnam Veedu got tagged along with his after he wrote the script for Sivaji Ganesan with the same name.
It is believed that Sundaram's audience majorly fell in the urban middle class background and he gave a touch of classicism in his films. Gowravam and Vietnam Veedu are two films for which he received immense laud and appreciation. Both of them starred the late actor, Sivaji Ganesan. Apart from writing scripts, he even directed a lot of movies and acted in a few of them. In his long career he has been a part of over 350 films in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. He has also been the receiver of Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Dialogue Writer (Vietnam Veedu) in 1970 and Arignar Anna Award in 1991, among others.
The famous Amitabh Bachchan, Rajinikanth film, Andha Kanoon's script has also been written by him. With such immense talent, it is a big loss to the industry. We hope for his soul to rest in peace.
