Avargal (English: Those People; Tamil: அவர்கள்) is a 1977 Tamil film made by K. Balachander starring Sujatha, Kamal Hassan and Rajinikanth.[1] The film had a reputation of being one of most sensitive movies on women’s lib. The same director later remade it into the Telugu film Idi Katha Kaadu (1979) with Jayasudha, Kamal Hassan, Chiranjeevi and Sarath Babu. Kamal is supposed to have learnt the art of ventriloquism for this movie in order to portray his character perfectly. This is Rajinikanth’s first Tamil film which had songs sung by S.P. Balasubramaniam (SPB had earlier sung for Anthuleni Katha, a Telugu Rajini-starrer) who continued singing for Rajinikanth’s later films for over 3 decades.
