Sri MGR Year 98, 24th July, Friday
This post is about some important events that have taken place in our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR life. Many years back when I was reading an article written by MGR for the election of 1977, he often repeated the term change of history he further explains how, that in 1967 DMK came to power by 1976 DMK was ousted from the power, the numbers 6 and 7 when replaced changed the history of DMK.
This post is inspired from MGR’s article. I found some interesting number play apart from the one mentioned above.

Sri MGR Year 98, 19th July, Sunday
After MGR was ousted from DMK in 1972, the party high command and as well as the circle level speakers tried their best to make believe that MGR did not have love towards the Tamil language. They emphasized that MGR was singing duet with Jayalalaitha for the movie Ayirathil Oruvan when Anti Hindi agitation was on its peak.
We all know that the movie has only one duet “Naanamo” which was shot entirely in the studio. So how come a duet in Karwar? There is no such outdoor scenes shot for the movie. And all the MGR devotees and Fans know why our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR did not participated in the Anti Hindi agitation.
To the left Nagesh, MGR, K.P.Ramakrishnan and other stunt artist lying down is Puthur Natarajan
MGR’s bodyguard K.P.Ramakrishnan who acted as one of the rebels in Ayirathil Oruvan has mentioned the reason in the functions conducted by us. His son R.Govindaraj has forwarded an article that was published in Kumudham issue dated 6.11.2013, K.P.Ramakrishnan narrates the events that actually happened during the shooting of Ayirathil Oruvan in Karwar, how MGR tried to participate in the agitation and why he did not.

Peraringnar Anna ordered MGR not to participate because the producers and financiers will be affected if he gets involved in the agitation. MGR while not in the shooting pinned a black badge to show his support to the protest.

Sri MGR Year 98, 14th July, Tuesday
The news was discomforting to hear that the icon of melody music and King of Light Music (Mellisai Mannar) M.S.Viswanathan has passed away early this morning. MSV attended the Ayirathil Oruvan Silver Jubilee function on 1st September 2014 in Kamaraj Arangam, the crowd gave a standing ovation for his entrance but due to his health he only spoke for a minute.
The Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu MGR honouring the King of Light Music M.S.Viswanathan in a function.
MSV has scored music over 1200 movies including Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Hindi etc. He has worked with our Thalaivar in numerous movies. MSV’s first film with MGR as music director is Jenovah (Genova) Malayalam movie which was released on 17.4.1953 later the Tamil version was released in June. His last film with MGR is also MGR’s last Maduraiyai Meeta Sundarapandian released on 14th January 1978.
To the right is the vinyl record of Raman Thediya Seethai movie showing the name of the lyrics and as well as the name of the Music Director M.S.Viswanathan, to the left is the song scene from Raman Thediya Seethai.
His greatest background score to my knowledge is for the movie Ulagam Sutrum Valiban. He had worked tirelessly with MGR to create a masterpiece. We can easily re collect which scene it is by just listening to the back ground music.
Maduraiyai Meeta Sundarapandian the last movie for MGR and MSV combo
Some of the MGR movies MSV worked for:
Jenovah (1953), Dheiva Thai (1964), Padagotti (1964), Ayirathil Oruvan (1965), Anbay Vaa (1966), Kavalkaran (1967), Kudieruntha Kovil (1968), Rickshawkaran (1971), Ulagam Sutrum Valiban (1973), Urimaikural (1974), Netru Indru Nalai (1974), Ithayakani (1975), Nalai Namadhe (1975), Neethiku Thalai Vanangu (1976), Indru Pol Endrum Vazhga (1977), Meenava Nanban (1977), Maduraiyai Meeta Sundarapandian (1978).
His name will be cherished in the hearts of film music lovers. “Mortal Men, Immortal Music (musician). We srimgr.com team prays for his soul to rest in peace.
