No Retake

Periya Edathu Penn released on 10.5.1963 in this year first time MGR’s nine films were released.

This is a song from ‘Periya Edathu Penn’ and first Cha Cha type dance of MGR. This was done as a test by T.R.Ramanna.

The dance number was very good. Look the clip first.

Now you can see that MGR has missed the beat! WHY?

Andrum Vanthathum etha Nila – MGR pats left shoulder of Saroja Devi continued by Saroja Devi pats MGR’s left shoulder.

The next line

Indrum Vanthathum atha Nila – MGR pats left shoulder and again Saroja Devi pats MGR’s left shoulder.

This is the end of beat.

the next line

Endrum ullathu oru nila – Second camera joins and now MGR tries to pat but he changes that gesture and syncs with Saroja Devi’s dance.

To my knowledge two cameras used and the inter cut was so lovely that taking another shot would be time consuming. And I feel MGR face is little bit swollen and looks sleepless. Maybe that also could be a reason for not going for re take. Any suggestions.
