RJ Balaji has come a long way from his 120 ruba days. From RJ to actor to Tamil Commentary it’s been a very colourful journey. The best part about his Tamil commentary is the way it connects to the layman. He doesn’t use all those high end cricket terms. Instead of that we get to hear words which we use in our daily lives.
He also connects cricketer’s names to popular personalities for Eg : Rashid Khan does remind us of Velayudham movie villain. We would just be using it during our daily chit chats here but when RJ Balaji mentions it commentary it feels one of us is talking there. It is a gift for the Tamil audience.
His trolls also help lighten up any situation. Trolls are always a stressbuster when done right. RJ Balaji trolls without hurt which makes us laugh. Even if the match is very tense RJ Balaji’s witty terms has us in splits.
Even in yesterday’s match he said “Paddikal rcb ku nalla adikkal natinar” when the young cricketer was playing well. Pollard is referred to as “Malai Milungi Mahadevan“. It is such hilarious terms which has made RJ Balaji a very relatable Tamil Commentator.
