Happy Birthday Padmini!
Mr. Sampath serves as a good show case for Padmini’s talent. She has lots of dances, from folk-lore to ‘semi-classical’ (whatever that means). Padmini, born on 12. June, had a long career of nearly 30 years as a leading lady, a record of sorts. I don’t know of any Indian actress, having such a long reign as a leading actress.
But all said and done the film belongs to the lead actor, Motilal. He IS Mr. Sampath.
