    Brahmanandam and Vadivelu are different class. They can make you laugh without dialogues and without much expression, i think its because of their body of work and inate ability to be comical , true thespians. I see telugu movies many times only because of Brahmanandam, many of my telugu kannada friends say the same about Vadivelu. We are blessed to have them both in same time.
