Picture Festival

November 10, 2007

This stance is from Anbae Vaa, where MGR plays a Industrialist JB (J.Balasubramanian) with beautiful costumes and nice sets.

One of MGR’s Block buster movie Enga Veetu Pillai, dons dual role. This character is called Elangovan with a spoonerism friend Nagesh. This picture is a stint for a fighting scene to quench his thirst as an actor.

This movie was released after MGR became the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. “Meenava Nanban” has lot of out door scenes shot mostly in Karnataka.

Teasing song in Thedi vantha Mapillai between MGR Jayalalitha locked inside a Hut in a rainy day.

I think this is one of the film MGR used less costume. A story from rags to riches and emphasizing the greatness of Hard work.

“Sirithu Vazha Vendum” remake of Hindi movie “Zanjeer” which catapulted Amitabh Bachan to stardom. MGR takes two roles one as the Police Officer (Amitabh role) and Casino owner (role of Pran). MGR is wearing a bright orange with black stripes which enhances the whole dream song. The song “Konja neram ennai marendhan” was actually recorded for MGR pictures “Ulagam Sutrum Valiban”.
