Thaiku Pin Tharam was re-released last week in Mahalakshmi Theater. We have already published the first part, this post will be about the acting talent that our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR have given in this movie.
Still many point out that MGR is not a good actor. (Because MGR always closes his face during crying scene) Here in this video captured in theater shows MGR’s performance, for those who mention that MGR is not an actor he cannot perform such feats.
Here in the above video MGR’s father was killed by a bull and MGR cries and finally vows to avenge his father’s death. Also watch how MGR fans enjoy this scene.
When you replay this video you can also see that how carefully MGR performs this act, and he actually falls over the burning pyre before that he adjusts his hair so that it wont catch fire. Two cameras are used in this breathtaking scene.
