Picture Festival II

November 13, 2007

Historical Movies of MGR:

This movie is the first Tamil Colour film. Alibabavum Narpathu Thirudargalum was a huge successful film. The movie has only one song for MGR and that too a duet song, anybody noticed? This picture is dedicated to Tamilan.

I was looking at this picture without blinking my eyes. MGR was very beautiful in this costume. Second time he was wearing this Roman costume other than Sathya movies movie “Kavalkaran”. To my knowledge the most expensive dress he used in “Adimai Penn”.

Baghdad Thirudan the only movie that Actress Vaijayanthi Malai starred with MGR.

Kulabaghavali film is based on Trickery and Magic. But MGR cut short all the magical essence from the story. This is a Dharbar Scene.

Movie – Kanchi Thalaivan
A portrait feature of King (MGR) the chest ornamental decoration is different and cannot be seen in other historical moive. Can I say that this delicate difference in costumes used by MGR appeases and looks good only for him? This picture is dedicated to Tamilan

Hair Style

After 1958 or so MGR used different kinds of wigs to enhance the character he acted. The wigs he used looks as original hair. Look closely all the pictures except Alibabavum Narpathu Thirudargalum and Kulabaghavali (original hair) all the pictures here are with wig. Do you see any wrinklings in the forehead, which clearly indicates the use of wig. Only two actors from the Golden Era have this distinct feature one was MGR and other was Sivaji Ganesan.

I will try to post the photos of MGR and Sivaji Ganesan starred film “Kundu Kili”

Sister in Law 2

The most loved pair of MGR Fans is none other than Jayalalitha (now lovingly called by her Party members as “Amma”) She first acted with him in the movie named “Ayirathil Oruvan” (One in One thousand) due to the success the pair continued from 1965 to 1973. Aggregating to 28 out of this in “Arasa Kattalai” (Kings Order) both Saroja Devi and Jayalalitha acted together. In the climax Saroja Devi dies and MGR marries Jayalalitha. But the real climax was MGR saves Saroja Devi and Jayalalitha chooses to be a Nun (Why they changed the climax?)

Jayalalitha was given prominent character which is equal to the Hero role. Domination of Jayalalitha in MGR movie is high when compared to other Heroines. She got individuals songs to show her talent in dancing, her dress sense and style. She was given a bigger role of teaching MGR all kind of martial arts in “Adimai Penn” (Slave Girl – for further reference click this which MGR fan can’t digest, but the fans were convinced in the film. In most of MGR-Jayalalitha starrer films in a song or in a dialogue, she mentions that MGR is born for her, which is notable.

After 1972 when MGR expelled from DMK, the pair also parted, the last movie they acted “Pattikattu Ponnaiah” she has the merit of acting with MGR in his 100th film and 2 Silver Jubilee films Oli Vilakku and Adimai Penn. Though she was cast as First Heroine in “Ulagam Sutrum Valiban” (World Trotting Youth) that role was given to Actress Manjula later.

In 1972 there were gossip columns in Newspapers that MGR married her in Nepal, but was turned as a rumour.

After MGR became Chief Minister for the second time he gave Jayalalitha a post in his party. There she gained importance and after his death she became the party Leader overcoming some difficulty.

The first MGR tomb was erected in Karunanidhi’s period designed like an umbrella but it looked like a mushroom in directly meaning MGR not worthy. When Jayalalitha came to Power in 1991 she reconstructed the Tomb in the form of Lotus and paid respect to her Mentor and Guide.

The first tomb was constructed by a contractor named B.L.Srinivasan and he is the same contractor who again given Tender to demolish the Tomb. How I know it? Because I worked as Typist in the Public Works Department, the work was carried out by Buildings Sub Division I of Buildings Division II. I also had the chance to talk with the Contractor he was a nice gentleman.
