For those who miss Crazy Mohan

‘Crazy’ Mohan, prominent theatre artiste and ace scriptwriter for Tamil films, suffered an acute heart attack in Chennai, and was declared dead at 2 p.m., after efforts to resuscitate him at Kauvery Hospital, failed. He was 67.

Born in 1952, as Mohan Rangachari, ‘Crazy’ was a nickname that he acquired after his popular play ‘Crazy Thieves in Palavakkam’ (which subsequently was run on television as a series too) became a runaway hit

Mohan qualified as a mechanical engineer at the College of Engineering, Guindy, in the 1970s. But his calling was elsewhere and he started his own drama troupe Crazy Creations in 1979. 

A Kalaimamani awardee, Crazy Mohan was popularly associated with Kamal Haasan and the duo together have given some of the most famous comedy dramas like Aboorva Sagodharargal, Michael Madana Kama Rajan, Sathi Leelavathi, Thenali, Panchathanthiram, Kadhala Kadhala, Avvai Shanmugi, Vasool Raja MBBS and Pammal K Sambantham. He also wrote Indian. Other famous films written by Mohan include Vietnam Colony and Magalir Mattum. Crazy Mohan also appeared in some of them, playing extremely funny roles.

For those who miss and for those too young to have missed him, here are some of his best.
