From a milkman to superstar!
A farmer in Thambikku entha Ooru? (1984)
The movie showed everyone that it wasn't just fisticuffs that Rajnikanth was good at -- he was a master at tickling the funny bone as well.
The movie opens with the star squandering his father's fortune, upon which the irate old man sends his son into the country for a sharp dose of reality. What follows is a hilarious, yet poignant tale of how Balu the rich kid slowly learns to work and live on a farm -- starting with sweeping out cowsheds and harvesting rice.
