K. Balachander's Pournami (stage Play ) by K.Balachander
K. Balachander is back to his roots - the Tamizh Stage which he ruled like a monarch for four decades
I had almost forgotten the high and the euphoria of sitting amidst a live audience and experiencing the applause and the appreciation as a part of my real surroundings instead of through hearsay or newspaper reports. I have dropped 30 years off my age and have found the courage and the conviction to start my creative journey all over again. Believe me friends, its great to be back home! - K.Balachander
When "Pournami" was staged on the 18th of April 2009, the standing ovation that the play received at the end of an absorbing 2 hours, only proved that Mr. K. Balachander had kept his word to bring back integrity, excitement and awareness back to the Tamizh stage.

Jannal by K.Balachander
The era of Min Bimbangal in Tamil Television (1990 - 2005) was a golden era of riveting, taut, intelligent, engaging and meaningful serials, all lush with life. For the first time on DVD, Swathi Family Entertainer presents here, a masterpiece from the period, K. Balachander's "Jannal" which engrossed and engaged satellite television households for more than two years on SUN TV during the period 1998-1999.
Through the looking glass; "Jannal" is a dispassionate investigation into the myriad intricacies of interpersonal relationships with subtle twists and nuances in the inimitable and consummate style of the Dada Saheb Award winner. The first in the series
"Sila Nijangal Sila Nyangal" examines the feelings of an adolescent as he goes through the trauma of the separation of his parents; his anguish as he is wedged in between conflicts which are not his own and being torn apart by the need for love and acceptance. The serial brutally unmasks the hypocrisy of relationships in a predominantly urban melee and deftly portrays the growing up of the boy and his realization that life is not distinct blacks and whites, but also grays.
