He ruled Tamil Cinema for almost a generation. Yes, we are talking about the legendary M G Ramachandran, whose magic will be created again with an animation flick named ‘Puratchi Thalaivan’.

Recently, the thespian’s old movies like ‘Nadodi Mannan’, ‘Aayirathi Oruvan’ and ‘Ulagam Suturam Valibhan’ released with a new look. And all the movies were successful at the box office.

MGR returns to Silver Screen

November 29, 2008

Today early morning when I opened my In box two mails – MGR Fans Siva Shanmugam and Dubai K.P.Ramesh has forwarded these url’s to me. A Happy News to MGR Devotees and MGR Fans, MGR to star in a brand new film.

This is from India Glitz website:

One of the most popular movie stars Tamilnadu has ever seen MGR is making a comeback to films. It would be an animation flick from the stables of Mayabimbham Media (P) Ltd who had earlier made the 3D film ‘V4’.

The 3D film starring MGR has been titled ‘Puratchi Thalaivan’. The producers of the film have said that MGR had last performed in the film ‘Maduraiyai Meeta Sundara Pandiyan’ and proudly proclaim that they are bringing him back to the silver screen after all these years.

‘Puratchi Thalaivan’ would be directed by Venky Baboo and produced by Sridevi Rao. A team of 3D animators would indulge themselves in the job of recreating the magic of MGR on screen.

One wonders who the animated heroine of the film would be. Would it be Saroja Devi or Jayalalitha. Who knows….the think tank behind MGR might prefer newer heroines like Trisha, Shriya or Nayantara.

This is from The Hindu:

“The venture will present the grace of the evergreen MGR to the new generation with the latest methods of storytelling since his last official movie ‘Maduraiyai Meetta Sundarapandiyan’ (The handsome Pandiyan who retrieved Madurai) was released in 1978 – three decades back,”publicist Nikhil Murugan said.

The work on the movie is well underway, he added.

“Puratchi Thalaivan”is being directed by Venky Baboo.

Produced under the corporate banner Mayabimbham, the venture’s trailer will be released on January 17 to coincide with MGR’s 92nd birth anniversary, a press statement added.

MGR was Tamil Nadu’s chief minister from 1977 till his death in 1987. He acted in 132 films (including two unfinished ventures which formed part of releases four years after his death) in a career spanning 43 years.
