May his soul rest in peace: One of the prolific screenwriter and theater artist ‘Crazy Mohan’ passed Away, tributes poured in.

The death of the 66-year-old actor, director, dialogue writer and comedian leaves a void in the heart of Tamil cinema, especially in the genre of humor. He is best remembered for his quick-witted one-liners and Tamil wordplay in films and plays over the years, a brand of comedy in which he ruled the roost among Tamil audiences.

Mohan Rangachari, fondly known to the cinema world as Crazy Mohan, who left us on Monday after he could not be revived following an acute heart attack.

The Crazy Thieves in Palavakkam set the tone for the rest of his career, as ‘Crazy’ Mohan and his brother Balaji wrote and starred in a number of plays of similar tone and tenor, which always had their audience in splits. The plays revolved essentially around wit and dialogue, even if thin plot-wise.

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.

Several plays followed, as also movie scripts and his association with Kamal Hassan led to some hilarious comedy films in Tamil films including Apoorva Sagodharargal, Sathi Leelavathi, Magalir Mattum, Kadhala Kadhala, Michael Madana Kama Rajan and Vasool Raja MBBS.

Deputy Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu O Panneerselvam took to Twitter to express his condolences to the family and fans of the comedian. He said that Crazy Mohan had captured a special place in the hearts of Tamil audiences. 

Other renowned personalities also remembered him.
